Federico Saenz-Recio

by Grace Bonney

My embarrassing love of pink seems to be spreading, and I’ve gotten some amazing hot pink tips from D*S readers lately. Sarah Reid sent me a link to Federico Saenz-Recio’s work, and naturally I flipped. So much pink — and used so well. I don’t get excited about just any pink; it needs to be vivid and used the right way, and Federico does it perfectly. His abstract paintings combine acrylic, graphite, pastel and spray paint and have a great energy to them. The painting above is definitely on my “things I’d like to own when I win the lottery” list. Thanks to Sarah for the tip! xo, grace
