It’s an exciting era for contemporary fine art painting.
When you think of paintings, you’re likely to think first of traditional media like oil on canvas, or water colour on paper, and maybe a few famous artists like Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, or Vincent Van Gogh, but painting is so much more than this!
Today’s painters use a myriad of paint types. Think acrylics, aerosols, oils, tempera, gauche, water colour, resin, and even house paint combined with Prismacolour, charcoal and ink on canvas, cotton, glass or reclaimed timber. Painting has suddenly become so much more exciting!
Then think of various painting techniques from spraying, to brushing and sponging, dripping and splashing to even shooting the paint from a water pistol!
And styles range widely from abstract and naïve, to outsider art to hyperrealism and (like it or hate it) contemporary street art.
