The Carnivale style was born during Palmer’s 2007 trip to Buenos Aires. Palmer was mesmerized by the vitality, high-energy, and 24/7 activity of the Argentinian capital. The style communicates a great deal of energy, and it always contains a bright red. Classic Carnivale pieces, while bright in color, were quite defined in their structure with rigid lines and segmentation of the canvas. Modern Carnivale paintings are much more fluid in their movement and reveal greater confidence and freedom by the artist. His collectors prize many of Palmer’s styles, but on the whole, is the Carnivale style that has been the most popular up to this point.
