Read more about the artist
The artist loves
painting in watercolour and paints almost everyday,
although he has drawn and painted most of his life it was only around
five years ago that he started to paint seriously in watercolour and
hasn't looked back since. He has won awards like best artist in show,
art commendations etc, he has also shown his work at the Mall galleries
and the Menier gallery in London.
Watercolour is his preferred medium now and suits him better than any other medium, he says I can be so expressive, free and bold. I think my way of painting goes back to ink sketches of artists such as Leonardo and Michael Angelo which were drawn freely and with spirit. My inspiration mainly comes from myself through practice and experimentation and also from other watercolour artists who show flair and who aren't afraid to do something different. I think it was Picasso who said that an artist doesn't take from other artists he steals!...we all learn from each other but your creative self comes out in your paintings.
