Artist Love: Becky Yazdan

Brooklyn-based artist Becky Yazdan paints the most intuitively abstract images, and sketches from her gut. I love how she is able to somehow use colors that are both muted and vibrant... such a unique gift. In her artist's statement, she quotes the Edo-era Japanese poet Matsuo Basho:

"The secret of poetry lies in treading the middle path between the reality and the vacuity of the world."
Urban Flea says... amen!
