Fred Agustin’s paintings are created through movements and layers of colors, lines, and textures. Emotions and immense passion are revealed through brave, spontaneous strokes of subtle hues made more alive by erratic textures of brushes and palette knives
“I try to paint what my eyes cannot see – to capture the energy, feelings, emotions, and moments in a canvas. I’d like to think that when I paint – I paint with my soul.”
Agustin’s style of abstract painting is somehow similar to automatism, a surrealist theory supposed by artists and critics alike to result in a direct expression or revelation of the unconscious, inner moods of the artist. This is true for Agustin as each stroke of the brush comes deep within the artist’s soul.
