Arrieta’s paintings reveal the interpretation of natural wonders and beautiful organic forms, which are diverse and varied in their presentation. His work is characterized by an abstractionism full of color and vigor, in strokes of vigorous spatula, impressive texture, and contrasting with subtle atmospheres; all of this in a contemporary style and beautifully degraded. Nature's most basic and minute forms and shapes intended to evoke a range of emotions, expressing the beauty of the forms and colors. The artist finds in nature a way of expressing a complexity of artistic, personal, and environmental feelings. Arrieta’s pictorical structures are beautiful in color contrast and meaningful. His works’ details fill spaces and outline areas of contrasting color space. His works express the natural world with creativity, elegantly beautiful, pushing abstraction to the edge of the finely finished object. The profound explosion of texture and shape, the quiet collision of forms, and the beauty often unseen allow our hearts and minds to open to the wonders of life through abstractionist and voluptuary poses contrived in the interest of compositional balance. The story on the canvas often blur the lines between fantasy and reality, leaning more on imaginative spontaneity to create something than is loose yet confident.
