C.P.U. by Rain Spann, 2019, Acrylic, oil, oil pastel on canvas
Size: 24 x 24 inches
Rain’s favorite part of this artwork is the brain and flower that grow from it. As it is a piece from 2019, it is evident how this concept became the foundation for the “projections” that would occur in later pieces like “What We Can Be”. It’s meant to represent growth of the mind. “Take care of your CPU” is something I often say in clothing designs, as we should indeed take care of our CPU.
Rain Spann is an emerging artist, who primarily works with oil and acrylic paint, pastels, and ink to depict abstract forms in vivid colors. His use of vibrant colors embodies the organic and geometric forms seen between the digital and physical realms. Spann’s “Geometric-Organicism” investigates form and media to capture their raw qualities and interactions. His interpretations bring new life to his surroundings and inspirations aligned with the ideals of surrealism and other modern art movements. Being drawn to Art at an early age, Virginia Beach based Artist, Rain Spann, decided to take Art seriously his senior year of high school after enrolling in an AP Art Studio Class. From this time up until he graduated, the Artist experimented and explored different mediums until he created a blueprint that was composed with the depiction of self-doubt, ambition, and the constant conflict that resides between both. While the Artist continued to experiment, his evolution into working with more bold color, composition, and subject matter was influenced directly by his exposure to Surrealism, Architecture, and his studies as a Computer Engineering Student at Old Dominion University. Constantly seeing inspiration in the world and people around him, the Artist found his voice in the utilization of vivid color to embody organic and geometric forms seen in his surroundings. While studying this concept and the different movements that have also been associated with the idea of the digital and physical, he began to call his work “Geometric-Organicism” and works to explore the different forms of media that it can reach. Today, Rain finds himself being drawn to all branches of creating; whether it be sculpting, digital manipulation, drawing, painting, or even collage. While constantly creating and finding new ways to depict his blueprint, Rain has achieved success in National Groupshows from Virginia Beach all the way to San Francisco and New York, International Groupshows in Taiwan, and even his first Solo Exhibition in Washington D.C. As well as finding success as a fine artist, Rain has also dipped his hand into designing with the establishment of his Clothing Brand, ONEWING.
