“Timeless”, mixed media artwork by Martín Revolo, “Shulka”
“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” — Khalil Gibran
“Timeless” by San Francisco artist Martín Revolo, “Shulka”, is a mixed media artwork on a 30″ x 30″ board. Framed and ready to hang, Martín has combined photography, drawing, painting, and print, creating this interesting artwork.
The artist “Shulka”
The artist “Shulka”, as Martín Revolo likes to call himself, resides in all of Martín’s work. Though each viewer may take a different meaning from his images, all have experienced a part of the narrative that is Shulka himself.
It is not necessarily the aesthetics of the image that defines his style, but rather his ability to unmask the “personal mythologies” of both the artist Shulka and the viewer. Such narratives can be intimate, ironic, or detached, but they are always thoughtfully incorporated into his work.
Telling a story
“In my attempt to tell a story, I create imagery that is both real and surreal laced in fantasy. The story continues to grow as I rely on my conscious and subconscious; creating and transferring those thoughts to an image. It is from that process that I find myself being most present in me.” – Shulka
