All of these were done in old watercolour scrap papers I found in my room. I was lucky enough to have saved them 10 years ago. As an update in art tools: I finally bought some Arches paper from Amazon as well as a watercolour paper sketchbook (and a few other supplies). The package arrived last Friday!
Here’s a new piece and my first time lapse video (requested by V Yari Sama on my facebook page, thanks!). I experimented with a new (to me) thing and went with the flow mixing ink into the watercolours.
I have been working on this short film for a while. Mainly because crashing systems and other vicissitudes got in the way. Anyway, the vision is finally here. This video was born as a celebration to different ways of seeing. Perception is a subject I’m keen on exploring in my work and wish to continue doing so.
With this project I wanted to make a personal approach to the essence of a terrible time. I re-visit the past to question and ritualize it. Taking dark emotions that are often neglected into the frontline.
I started this project during one night of May 2013 by taking impromptu pictures of the place and the things that surrounded me.
Two years later (2015) I return and fill the frame with the same spaces, allowing my current mindstate and perception create a visual contrast. Documenting a process.
Dug up these from my artwork vault to showcase them on the blog. Some of these appear on the internet for the first time, today!).
I took these back in 2008, inspired by film noir and voyeurism. Thinking of self portraiture as a method for transformation and story telling. Concealed between reflections, glass, smoke or a figure; What you think you know can be misunderstood.
In a world where people share their success and hide their failures at all times, Sam Viloria challenges the viewer with the opposite. Unveil your anxiety and immerse into the whimsical work of this Los Angeles based, artist.

A series of photos created with my (old 3.2 pixel) phone.
During the stupor of the morning when the sun rays peek between your eyelashes, dreams fade. A burst of light and colour begins to reign, while the after-taste of your dream remains.
The mood of that interval between dreamland and waking up is translated into paper.
This is part of a photography project I’m working on. I combine make up and photography to create characters based off from sketches.
These photos are from 2013 and there’s still a lot of work left to actually release the whole series but I wanted to share the whole Sadness is Golden set here on my blog.
