I'm humbled to share the story behind "Cosmic Jungle." This painting is very special to me as it marked a crucial moment in my art journey.
Discovering my passion
While I've been creating for as long as I can remember and have worked in so many different styles, I struggled for years to explain my artistic identity. In past exhibitions, visitors often mistook my work for that of multiple artists. I was hard on myself for not having a niche or a distinguishable style but now I can reflect on that period as a vital time of exploration and experimentation. After a break, I returned to the paint palette with a renewed focus and a deep desire to pursue what I truly loved and wanted from my art practice.
Painting this piece sparked something within me and I realised that I wanted to focus my art practice on creating vibrant artwork inspired by nature and filled with positive energy.
Over the years I've noticed I stop painting if I'm not in a great mood, so you can be sure that every artwork is loaded with optimism, hope, excitement and the love of colour. This is important to me because life can be challenging and sharing bit of happiness is what I'm about.✌️
The enchanting blend of colours
In "Cosmic Jungle," the combination of bright neon colours and soft pastels creates a dreamy and magical scene. Painted on a cold wintry day in Worthing, UK while i patiently waited for summer. I wanted to use vivid hues transport us to a tropical place and ignite our imaginations.
Precision meets expressive brushstrokes
"Cosmic Jungle" beautifully balances fine lines and dynamic brushstrokes. The intricate details guide your eyes, while the bold brushwork adds movement and energy.
Craftsmanship and material excellence
Crafted with care, "Cosmic Jungle" showcases my dedication to craftsmanship and sustainability. I used acrylic paint on plywood, which provides a durable canvas. To ensure its longevity, I applied a protective varnish. The artwork is complemented by a reclaimed frame, adding a touch of history and sustainability.
How Cosmic Jungle enhances your space
Bringing art into your home, office, room, or even tiny spaces is an excellent opportunity to energise your surroundings and showcase your unique style and character. Let the warm vibrant colours of "Cosmic Jungle" breathe life into your space and allow your imagination to wander freely amidst its warm and enchanting scene.
