About The Artwork

Chris Maestas is a traditionally educated Senior Automotive Designer whose conceptual paintings are a visual representation of contours, line projections, and sections of three-dimensional shape, which is an essential source of information in Industrial Design. Chris is compelled to visually express the combination of precision math and graffiti style, which creates the unique process and execution of Auto Graffica. This process of Contemporary Art is done using the three-dimensional digital tools to create mathematically precise automotive models as a basis for the painting. It is this mathmatical execution of NURBS (Non-uniform rational basis spline) modeling using basis splines (B-splines) that is then translated into a beautiful symphony of projected curves to create paintings using traditional graffiti tools such as spray paint, and 5mm “MOPS”.

American Artist/Designer Chris Maestas (b.1984) has been interacting visually and physically with the urban environment of Los Angeles since his day as a graffiti writer, skateboarder, and automotive enthusiast starting in the early 2000s. Chris was deeply influenced by the transformation brought by the many different sub-cultural elements that Los Angeles underwent in the early 90s. He was Particularly inspired by how the three-dimesional reality of the city was often dressed or transformed to express individuality based on influential sub cultures. There was an urge to stand out. Over the years, this unique relationships of free-from styles of sub cultures mixed with the mathematically accurate execution of design created the foundation for his original approach to paintings called Auto Graffica.
