iconic:a fine art can be described as “Pop Art done well” or “Fine Art for Nerds”
I’m a Brisbane based artist, working mainly in the medium of oil paints.
This blog and the work shown here is a vehicle for me to learn and get to grips with painting in a style which nod’s to the Flemish and Venetian methods of Oil painting.
I have found that this way of working really suits me, and I just wish i had become familiar with it sooner.
The bulk of the work here is what some may regard as “Low Brow” subject matter. However thankfully for many others it is subject matter that they can relate to and appreciate.
I could have been painting landscapes or still lives or bowls of fruit. But that would have bored me to tears. Hopefully the work I do here, others will find appealing, and will allow me to
grow as an artist with each new piece.
I look forward to sharing with you, each new piece and hopefully the process by which some of these works are created.
