Michael Abstract Design
Michael Bertoli has transferred his abstract digital artwork onto 100% Silk Twill and Georgette silk scarves, which are digitally printed and manufactured in Melbourne. “My aim is to intelligently amalgamate fashion and art, so that each scarf turns the wearer into an on trend walking artwork. Silk is a prized possession of timeless beauty and elegance, it is an investment in fashion, never outdated which gives that something special that makes people notice.”
Abstract art is a playground of visual delight, creating a world of colour. The computer, a mouse and imagination are my tools of expression. One of the greatest advantages of working with digital medium, is that you are provided with an inexhaustible creative potential.
Finding the key to a creative process is to provide something new and inspiring that captures, surprises and stimulates the senses its dynamic sparks conversation, brings joy, makes us think its personal and connected to now. It’s an exploration, abstracting what one feels to be the essence of a particular moment. My artwork is solely the interplay of colour, shape, line, tone, texture. I use filters and effects to accomplish the look that I want. It is devoid of literal meaning or message. These qualities help to create effective, powerful moods and images, allowing each piece to find its own identity.
I enjoy experimenting with new concepts, this is reflected in the ever changing artwork. I never quite know what the finished piece of artwork will look like. That is part of the creative process that I enjoy. Art is an attitude, a way of life. It’s an evolution of ideas. It’s about the excitement of exploring with your eyes, mind and spirit, the unique and mysterious. We don’t know exactly what we are looking for but, at some point we know it is there. It’s personal and subjective. Seeing what you have never seen before and, if a person takes something different from the artwork, I am happy with that”.
