Ever since joining our online gallery at Art2Arts, Irina Rumyantseva’s art went from strength to strength. She not only has her own recognizable style, but her paintings are admired by customers from all over the country. “We received these on Monday safe and sound, and they are all up on our walls, and making our new home look a whole lot brighter and more distinguished.” (Jeremy & Sam, Cambridge)
Moving to the UK in 2009 after gaining a Master’s Degree in art and design in St. Petersburg, Irina’s artwork has been well received in Manchester where she lives as well as in other parts of the country. Her main themes are still life, quirky animals and cityscapes, but she also paints butterflies, human figures and abstract images.
Using mainly acrylic in vibrant colours and experimenting with texture and splashes of colour, Irina’s paintings are delightful, happy and uplifting.
Sharon Deegan creates abstract paintings which are highly textured and embellished with metallic accents. Her art is very tactile and dynamic and she is inspired by the natural world, by the sea and underwater world and water reflections. “Recurring themes in much of my work are flowing images; I like the idea of movement and that nothing stands still and is always changing”, says Sharon.
Even though the images are abstract, the titles are suggestive of the theme she explores, helping viewers to interpret them. Almost Day, Twilight Shower, Misty Tide or Amber Dawn are just a few examples.
Having had a successful career in fashion design, Sharon turned to painting full time and she delights her customers with her beautiful images. “I just wanted to thank you for the piece Bronze Tide we had ordered from you. It is gorgeous and so beautifully made. It looks wonderful in our lounge and we are very pleased with it. Thank you!” Rhia (Essex)
Working in a variety of mediums and styles and being inspired by different themes, from abstract to nature and city scenes, Simon Fairless’ art is diverse and appealing to many collectors.
For nature lovers he creates birch trees and trees in bloom; for those who like abstract art, he creates monochromatic pieces, minimalistic images and paintings inspired by Jackson Pollock’s method of painting: splashing and dripping; for those who enjoy city life and London he creates cityscapes and for those who like humour in art he creates abstract images of people partying.
Although there are many artists who stick with one style and medium and just a few themes, there are many artists who deviate from this rule and experiment in a variety of styles, themes and mediums to keep their creative process alive and the artworks of Simon Fairless prove that this approach works just as well.
Concentrating mainly on seascapes but also depicting still life pieces and landscapes, Elizabeth Williams’ art is skilfully made which lead to a few invitations to exhibit her work with prestigious galleries.
Her seascapes feature waves on the sea shore, the movement of the skies with the sun rising or setting, the light of the moon over the ocean at midnight and the high waves on the Dorset coastline. The undulations of the waves are replaced with rolling hills in all seasons in her semi abstract images inspired by Yorkshire and Dorset landscapes.
The still life pieces are realistic, capturing the glimpses of light on the objects that seem to glow in the dark.
Elizabeth Williams paints mainly in oil on canvas and her paintings have a traditional feel with a modern twist thus making them appealing to a wide audience and collectors.
Bold and bright are just two words that describe Andrew Watt’s art, one of the most popular artists in our gallery. Here are a few testimonials from happy collectors: “Thank you ever so much, I am over the moon, it looks smashing in our dining room, it received lots of compliments during our dinner party yesterday” (Erica – Hampshire); “It looks fab and I’m very pleased with it” (Amy – Glamorgan); “The painting arrived a few days ago and its lovely” (Anna – Poland).
Using different mediums and techniques Andrew Watt produces textured abstract paintings in vibrant colours, perfect for brightening up any room in your home or office.
Regarding the creative process, the artist says that “Art is a bit of an addiction to me, I love the way by using different experimental techniques, and by starting with a general idea I can develop and watch each painting evolve through the creation process, seeing how the mediums work together to produce unique effects and colour blends and washes”.
