images                                                                                      Giacomo Balla- Street Light 1909.

This futurism painting is one of my favourites because of how powerful and eccentric it is visually. The combination of the mark making and colours portray the light as something amazing. Through this painting technique Giacomo Balla has conveyed his idea that man-made light is more powerful than natural light. Although I do not have futurist views I throughly enjoy this painting and the vibrancy of the painting style. In my painting I want to be able to create a similar feeling power.
