Abstract clothing is another way to describe the fine art fashion I create with The Art Leggings. My name is Michael Theophan Kinoian Lujan and I'm a published artist based in Los Angeles. The broader body of my work may be seen here, where I sell wall art prints.
The art used in The Art Leggings abstract clothing line begins with nature, and it ends in one of three destinations: Nature Unveiled, Abstract Angels, and Science Fiction Romances. All of my artwork here can best be described as abstract, even my nature photography, which dwells on the finer, closer details of what I'm photographing.
"Concepts create idols; only wonder grasps anything." ~ Gregory of Nyssa
Science Fiction Romances
This collection of abstract clothing is an expression of wonder at the limitless grandeur of the heavens. The infinite starry night I saw camping as a kid, the images beamed back to Earth by space probes and space telescopes, and the science fiction fare of my youth (and my adulthood) have all contributed to a need to express this wonder through my art.
Abstract Angels are a series of virtual "personalities" that emerged from an experimental process I've developed and honed since 2004. The source material is always my nature photography.
This is where it all started for me, all my serious aspirations as an artist began with nature's wonders. It was just as often a beautiful bloom as it was some weeds randomly growing out of an asphalt crack in an alley that provoked my wonder, enough to sometimes spend hours over the same square meter, trying to capture its manifold essence from as many different angles as possible.
