The Flamenco


Artist: iSAW

This artwork was inspired by the traditional Spanish dance, The Flamenco.

The Flamenco is a traditional dance originated from the Andalusian region of southern Spain. The dance includes Cante (singing), Toque (guitar playing), Baile (dance), Jaleo (singing and vocalisation), Palmas (hand clapping) and Pitos (finger snapping).

An observer tends to focus on the dancer performing the flamenco, watching the fluid motion and body movements with sudden sharp changes in direction at times along with the stamping of the feet, all in rhythmic harmony to the rest of the accompaniments that make up The Flamenco as we know it.

The colour of the clothing is also very important. Red clothing or red and black clothing with punctuations of a few bright but complimentary colours. When the dancer is in flow, the predominant colour leads the motion and the secondary colours follow the lead, creating a spectacular motion of colour and shape, hence the inspiration for the artwork.
