Our artist of the week is the multi-talented Duanne, an avid baker and crafter also! He talks to us about his artwork, and what inspires him.
What’s your favourite medium?
I love working with Mixed Media. I like the versatility it offers and the variety of effects you can achieve The main image is a picture of a squatter camp in South Africa. It was created using mediums that are actually used in the construction and insulation of the informal settlements which sprung up around mining towns. For this, I added Gold Leaf into the image.
What projects are you working on now?
I am currently planning on a range of paintings for a modern African face mask range.
What has been your favourite new product/ discovery in the last year?
I LOVE the Golden range of products as well as the Deco Art range. Especially the Pebeo Moon range, which gives unique and complex finishes.
Who is your favourite artist/blog/inspiration?
My favourite artist of all time is probably Tamara de Lempicka. I follow an amazing artist called Vicky Papaioannou as well as many of our supplier's blogs and YouTube channels. My advice to any would be artists is to just go for it. It is only paint and canvas and if you don’t like it, paint over it and start again.
