Inspirations: Cy Twombly


Recently, Cy Twombly and his paintings keep popping up in my life (and Pinterest feed). 

I love the playful nature of Twombly’s work. His pieces at first appear quite simple, yet they all have these small exquisite details that make it easy to get lost staring at them for hours on end.


Twombly often used a variety of oil paint, wax crayon, and lead pencil, giving his work such a unique and captivating texture. There’s a childlike quality to his pieces, too, that leave a sense of whimsy in their wake. 



I find it hard not to be inspired by Twombly’s work– how many pieces do you think I can fit on the walls of a 500 square foot New York City loft…?
