I’m here to help people understand the value of visual art. I want to make art accessible to everyone. I want to show how visual art can convey an emotion or feeling in a pure way from creator to audience without the need for language. I want to help people work through difficult times, by inspiring them to pic up a brush or do something else creative to channel their emotions.
The latest episode of the Sadd Artist just dropped. Here I talk to Designer Mike Holdcroft about a collaborative painting we worked on. Hopefully this will provide some insight into the benefits of working with other creatives…enjoy!
The themes of Mark’s paintings are often premeditated and decided prior to the application of paint. Imagery will be conjured at the base layer in the form of various shapes and textures. Paint is subsequently applied in an expressive manor, using meditative techniques, some documented by those who practice ‘automatic drawing’. A combination of paint and varnish is then used to reveal the hidden esoteric patterns within.
