Portrait Art

Portraits have a long and rich history, dating back to ancient times. Traditionally, portraits were created using techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpture and more recently photography. With the advent of digital technology, artists now have additional tools and mediums at their disposal, including digital painting, photo manipulation, and mixed media.

The purpose of portrait art can vary. It can serve as a representation of a specific person or as a commemoration of a historical figure. Portraits can also convey social and cultural messages, explore themes of identity, or capture intimate moments and emotions.

Portraits can take various forms, from formal and posed compositions to candid or conceptual interpretations. They can be realistic, impressionistic, abstract, or stylized, depending on the artist’s vision and intention. I like to work with a mix of realism and abstract.

The challenge to create likeness in portraits is a new challenge for me. I welcome the opportunity to paint large scale portraits. When I paint a portrait I bring my traditional graffiti style and techniques into the work, attempting to bring the portrait to life in a colourful and dynamic way.

If you have a large scale portrait or portrait mural project I look forward to working with you to develop a world class installation.
