Mesmerizing Dot Murals

Artist Julie Clement creates intricate designs made of dots.

Julie ClementClement’s Venus and Sun was displayed at the Longmount Museum & Cultural Center in Longmont, CO. Her pointillism follows renowned artists Lichtenstein and Seurat.  It brings to mind the artwork of Australian aboriginal artists.

She is described on her website as “vivacious; and her energy, contagious!”, and looking at her colorful, flowing images certainly reflects that energy.  Her paintings are composed of hundreds upon thousands of dots, and  she describes her process as meditative. She draws inspiration from dreams, books, and life experiences.

update your mental image of pointillism

Maybe you are familiar with the term “pointillism”.  It is an original form of art that was created by artist George Seurat, consisting of many dots that are colored and formed to create a picture.

Artist Miguel Endara brings us up to date on this art form, and brings a new dimension to understanding the process. He has recently composed a portrait of his father composed of 3.2 million ink dots, and you can watch him work in an online video:
