Jorge Becerra's Eclipse

Check out this impressive artwork. It was created in addition to the class assignment by Jorge Becerra, a 17 year old student enrolled in the Academy's Teen Program. Jorge has come up with a surreal image. A series of shape abstractions that cryptically contain the word "Eclipse" in a hyper graffiti style. Can you spot the word? Neither could I, but after awhile I started to make out a few letters. Jorge pointed it out when he was asked.

Eclipse was created with color pencils against pre-colored paper. The space surrounding the twisting image was enhanced with the use of spray paint. An innovative method for creating a nice piece of art. This is the first time that Jorge Becerra's work has been published. We'll be looking forward to more images of interest from this promising artist.
