Peter Espinosa’s playful repetition

My name is Peter Espinosa and I work primarily in acrylic and mixed media on canvas, exploring themes of urban development, chaos and identity. My pieces are often defined by their gritty, dense layered composition- created using acrylic, graphite, pigment pen and sometimes photo collage elements. I enjoy playing with repetition, industrial elements and the surreal in much of my mixed media pieces.Originally from the U.S. but now living in China, I tend to spend a lot of time in densely populated urban environments. My travels, photos, sketches and observations here have served as an influence on much of the subject matter in my work.
