AVM’s Mosaic Series began as a painting on canvas panels in the 2010, which inspired AVM to create a series of works of different colors on canvas panels and canvas. The larger, the better. The process included drawing the lines beforehand with a sharpie marker, followed by hand-painting each individual space, one-by-one, sporadically to create a memorizing sea of colors. Due to the intricacies, the focused attention and time placed into this series, AVM has halted the creation of this series.
