Contemporary Acrylic Painters

Philip Tyler is a British artist who focuses upon the materiality of paint and its potential to create illusionary spaces on the canvas – this is easy to see from the thick, sweeping, textured brush strokes which feature in his paintings. The artist explores themes of loss in his work which often features landscapes and nude bodies as its subject. Examples of these include landscape painting Late Dreams and nude Johanna at Jakes and the result is hauntingly beautiful, yet deeply melancholic.

Another of our artists whose acrylic paintings should not be missed is Bea Garding Schubert whose fascinating pieces seem to reveal more and more about themselves the longer you look at them. Her works such as Spread Joy No.1 and Keep the faith No.3 inspire hope and happiness and her distinctive colour palette adds a refreshing burst of pastel-toned joy to any room.

History of Acrylic Paintings

Acrylic painting is a relatively recent phenomenon compared to the use of oil and watercolour paints, having only been first commercially promoted in 1955. Many artists are attracted to it due to its dominant bright colours and the sharp brushstrokes and lines that it can achieve, as well as its capacity to be used on a variety of surfaces and mixed with a multitude of other media. Furthermore, it is exceptionally versatile and resilient compared to other forms: it dries rapidly and is capable of giving both the transparent brilliance of watercolour and the density of oil paint as well as being less affected by heat and other destructive forces than oil paint is. Additionally, it has proven popular among artists who were concerned about the health risks posed by handling and inhaling the fumes of oil paints. It is clear to see why this relatively modern invention has proven so popular and is still used by artists the world over today.
