During the development of the complete Artists' Acrylic range, we have worked with several highly creative acrylic artists with a wide variety of styles and techniques to gain invaluable feedback.
This section enables you to explore their work and to find out what each of them has to say about Artists' Acrylic and how it has worked for them in practice.
Adebanji is a professional artist working in Chelsea, London. He is primarily a figurative and portrait artist with a fascination for painting and sketching people and draws inspiration from the people he sees travelling on public transport! As well as working with acrylics, Adebanji also uses a variety of media including oils, pastel and pencils. In all his work Adebanji attempts to convey a feeling of life, movement and energy.
Celia is a professional artist working in Cheltenham, England. Inspired by the rugged landscapes of Scotland, Cornwall and Wales, Celia's 'impressionistic' landscapes adopt a loose and free flowing appearance that captures the essence of the view she conveys. She is also a serious portrait artist, adopting a more representational approach but still remaining true to her painterly style.
Vanessa is a professional artist and art curator based in London. Her paintings are inspired by photography, social culture, powerful women she admires and shiny, glossy things. She works with a layering process and her style combines both photorealism and abstraction.
Neil is a professional painter living and working in Bristol. He has exhibited his work in both the U.K and the U.S.A. His work can be described as photorealist while on closer inspection regaining a painterly look and texture to the canvas surface. The American landscape has been a regular source of inspiration while recent large scale paintings have focused on places of worship.
Anthony is a professional artist working from a city centre studio in Bristol. His paintings are represented by some of the UK's leading galleries. He is predominantly a landscape painter and interested in the power of a landscape over a person and the relative vulnerability of that person in the landscape. Scale and impact are both important in Anthony's paintings. He paints rapidly and with energy, using layers of texture and colour to create expressionist representations of the British Coast in Acrylic on Canvas.
Nick is a full-time artist and writer working in London, England. His work is linked to his writing which is often incorporated into his paintings and vice-versa. Nick adopts a physical relationship with his painting where he lets the acrylic paint fall onto the canvas from above and then moves and manipulates it to create an almost 3 dimensional appearance. He is fascinated by the juxtaposition of 'willed' and 'unwilled' areas of paint in his work.
Paresh is a Hertfordshire based artist who has been painting professionally for 10 years. He describes his style as contemporary abstract. His works are a vibrant mix of movement and emotion and are inspired by music as he transforms the energy of sound onto the canvas. He has exhibited his work in the US, the UK and all over Europe where his work is also part of private collections.
Kim is a full time artist based in Surrey, England and working in London. The inspiration for her paintings is the paper minutiae we all leave behind throughout our lives such as receipts, certificates, tickets, etc… and she transforms them into gigantic hand painted monuments. Each item she paints is fragmented and meticulously reproduced on a massive scale in very thin layers of acrylic paints, giving it a final print-like quality.
Kerstin is a full time artist living and working near Stockholm in Sweden. Her expressionistic acrylic paintings often incorporate mediums and other materials such as feathers and tissue to add texture. Kerstin likes to experiment with acrylic mediums in her work as she believes they create unexpected facets and details that couldn't have been created intentionally.
Beckie is a full time artist living and working in Suffolk, England. Her work is inspired by the vast skies and landscapes of East Anglia where she lives. Her acrylic paintings aim to merge different painting techniques within one piece, contrasting large textured expressive skies with highly detailed areas. These different techniques enable her to create a balance between being expressive and controlled.
