Art. Statement

I love words, I love people who can use words to describe and express. I can't write to save my life. This painting is just my words and I painted them mainly for the fact that if I spoke them, I'd just mumble and end up having to repeat them and then their impact is lost.
I painted this after a night out with a group of people and as always I came home alone. The main thing about this was a did it out of frustration and drunkenness. I drew the straight lines on the canvas and just wrote exactly what I felt at 4am.

Art. Boy In The Corner

This was as close to a self portrait I have ever come to doing. It was not a great time in my life and the words across the board are random questions and statements I was asking myself at the time. Alot of them were over written numerous times, to the point were it is unreadable in parts. I guess 'cos I was questioning myself alot. I wish I was good with words and expressing myself.

Art. Graphite Man

I took this canvas out of a skip and I painted over it with a mix of black and purple. It stayed that way for ages, then one day I was going out on a date and I turned up to take the woman out and she decided she didn't want to go. I was kinda livid, normally I'm just told, 'no chance' when I ask for the date, I've learnt to accept that.
Anyway, I went home and this is what I came up with. It's graphite stick man with a painted white shattered heart. Perhaps it's a subconscious self portrait from that day?

Art. Half of Half of Half

This was probably the first painting that I produced. I didn't have a clue how to paint, let alone what to paint so I thought I'd keep it simple and just have a bit of fun experimenting with colour and do a simple shape.
Eventually, I started it and after a night of just painting the canvas a bunch of times and streaking it with contrasting colour while one layer was still wet. I just enjoying this process but had no idea what to do next. I ended up masking out the square shape and sort of worked out a pattern that was sort of half of it's shape multiplied.
I did a whole series of painting like these and gave them to friends but for some reason I'm incredibly fond of this piece. Perhaps because it was my first, the simplicity or just the slab of colours?

Art. I Forget How Big I'am and Garden animals

It's been a while since I put any 'art' on here so I will put some up over the next few days and weeks. Whoop!
I've often been drawing and creating animals and creatures. It's pretty fun taking fave animals and blending them. This is just a plain Elephant, no strangeness to him.
The Giraffes are a bit strange with their markings.
The garden animals are made from spare bits of wood but they do have a bit of strageness to them.
