Traditional Art

Traditional Art is generally defined as art created in physical mediums; in other words, artworks such as Acrylics, Oils, Sculpture and other typical mediums used to produce artworks, as seen since the classic era.

Most of my traditional art is made with Acrylics on canvas, although sometimes I combine things that normally wouldn’t go together to achieve specific visual effects. For example, spray paints make for good and even base layers on a canvas.

Generally I do not have my work framed, as I believe that frames are a matter of personal taste – for example I don’t like most work framed with pass-par-touts but I do know a lot of people that absolutely love them, even very wide ones.

I can get one of my paintings framed for you, but I encourage you to get a framing professional to do it for my unframed paintings because you have the full control of how the picture should be framed to match other objects in a room. Not all frames will match each other. Especially if they come from different artists; nor do they necessarily match your walls, if someone else picked the frame for you.

I have made creative works in most mediums before, but I’m not experienced at length with all of them. Having an objective allows for far more precise end-results, as opposed to simply trying to make something from imagination. Some of the things I’ve worked before include Ceramics and Tiles, as well as Metal, in the form welded “modern-art” sculptures; and also Watercolours and Oils.

Unfortunately, while I’d like to make more things in some of these other mediums, I either don’t have the space or the appropriate tools in some cases. In the case of ceramics and sculpture, along with some other large-product mediums, space for the resulting artwork can be difficult to organise if it’s not getting stored in a studio or public space.
