Mixed media, hand painted artwork on a metre square chunky box canvas.
Created with acrylic based marker pens and acrylic paint with brushes.
Shown as part of my 'Drawing A Crowd' exhibition, 2016.
Signed and dated 2016 on the reverse.
Meticulously hand painted over several days in my studio in Basingstoke, UK.
I see my artworks as visual stories and I pack them full of little details to keep the viewer interested and looking for more. The fun part for me is the story telling, so I struggle putting across a short description of what they are about, it would be like saying “Moby Dick” is a book about a whale, or “The Godfather” is about an Italian family. But if you're forcing me to put it in words; they speak of peace, fun, unity, humour and enjoyment.
I like the viewer to initially see the canvas as one whole composition, allowing the lines and colours to draw their eye around the painting and then into the individual elements and objects.
I package my paintings with bubble wrap, between sheets of 3mm plywood and wrap with strong brown paper. I send via a tracked courier (will vary depending on your location, typically it'll be UPS or DPD) and insure the artwork to the value.
