Rum Corvera draws realistic, bold human figures with the technical precision and close attention to detail that Corvera has honed in jewelry design. Rendered in smudged charcoal over black paper, he embellishes these figures with textured gold painted accents, and intricate patterns of lines and dots in gold and white producing a lush, art deco feel, reminiscent of Gustav Klimt, influenced by illustrator Laura Laine, and his childhood in the Middle East.
