We love finding new and unique creatives and today we found artist David Sena. Born and raised in Texas, he moved to New York to study at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where his works first were inspired by ‘cosmology and the interconnection between terrestrial and celestial fires’
Unlike usual artists using mediums like oil painting or pencil drawing, David Sena’s dangerous approach takes it straight to the next level. He uses fireworks to create his works. As well as using fireworks he is also an extremely talented tattooist.
He continues to say ‘for me its really about the real kinetic energy behind the short controlled burst of explosion that appeals to me’. He mainly uses ‘Jumping Jacks and colour smoke-bombs’ to create his pieces and to create certain shapes all he does is change the angles of the fireworks burning onto the paper, allowing most of his works to be completely random. Trying to compare it back to the first technology of humankind: fire, he wanted to create an‘elemental feel’ to his work.
Another technique, which produces amazing results, is what he calls ‘spatial art’' burning through different layers of paper and overlapping to create a truly magnificent 3D effect. Check it out on the links below and let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter:
