On Anthony Tapiess Mixed Media Style

Jianqing Wei

Abstract


Anthony Tapies is both an explorer of mixed media painting and a leader of informal painting. He is passionate about
the exploration of materials and is committed to bringing them to life. Tapies has always believed that specific materials and their
principles coordinate with each other, which successfully changed the visual understanding and aesthetic concept of modern art.
Although the materials used in Tapies paintings are all collected from common stuffs, he still insists on screening different painting
materials and striving to expand new aesthetic dimensions from the materials, so as to achieve better artistic effects. This paper
deduces the inner principles of the material by summarizing the material, and explores Tapies mixed media style through sorting
and summarizing his unique mixed media.

Keywords
