Acrylic paint is a quick drying paint made of pigment that is suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion. Although water soluble when wet they become water resistant when dry. Acrylic paints were first used as early as the 1930's but did not really become commercially available until the 1950's. These paints were also later sold as latex house paints. Many artists such as the abstract expressionists and famous artist Jackson Pollock used latex paint in his large "drip" canvases. The early inventors of Pop Art such as Roy Lichtenstein also used latex paint on their canvases. But, often latex paint has become so unstable in adhering to the canvas that the paint literally flakes off when moving the art object. Obviously not intended to do so, acrylic paints have been a cheaper alternative to oil based paints and often are much easier to use than having to mix your own. The main difference between acrylic and oil paints is the binder - linseed oil for oil paints and water for acrylic. Acrylic paints also dry a lot quicker than oil paints.

Artists Describing Their Art:

David Larkins - I've always been intrigued by the luminosity and transparencies found in watercolor and acrylic mediums. I believe an artist must experience the painting - to absorb the surroundings, the atmosphere, to have a oneness with the subject matter before the first brush stroke is applied. My style is described as "Abstract Realism" and my strength is found in the composition. I'm drawn to diverse subject matter that challenges the viewer to see abstraction in the ordinary - to meld the "real" world with the "abstract". ...

Austen Pinkerton - ARTISTS STATEMENT AUSTEN PINKERTON I have never had any problem with finding ideas for works of art. If I turn my mind to it very quickly I can come up with several ideas for works i?1/2paintings, drawings, or sculptures. Sometimes ideas come to me when I least expect it, or when my mind is on other things. A lot of my work is autobiographicali?1/2either directly or indirectly, consciously or subconsciously. It is frequently very personal, and expresses events or circumstances or experiences in my life. I am completely happy working in either Acrylic on canvas, Crayon or Pastel or both together with Gouache on card, Drawing in pencil, or Ink, or both, or with creating Sculpurei?1/2for which I use fired artists clay. Incidentally, obviously Sculpture follows a completely different set of values from two-dimensional art, and I take this into account when creating mine. In all my works of art, however, or from whatever, they are made, what they crucially entail, to me, are craftsmanship, beauty, and content, or meaning. When I have an idea I execute it, and when I begin to execute it, at least after the initial i?1/2sketchi?1/2 phase, the action becomes automatic. I...

John Cielukowski - I received my BA in Fine Arts from Montclair University in New Jersey in 1981. I also studied at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and The Art Students League in New York City. I enjoy painting vintage amusement park scenes, farm animals, domestic and feral felines and industrial landscapes. With my paintings of farm animals I try to convey that these animals have the same depth of emotion, feel joy and suffer just like our domesticated pets do. I donate my paintings and prints to local non-profit Central Florida groups such as (Save The Manatee Club, The Brevard Achievement Center, The Space Coast Feline Network and the Humane Society of Central Brevard) for their fund-raising efforts. I also donate to national animal welfare groups like Farm Sanctuary, in Woodstock, NY. I am an active member of the Central Brevard Art Association. I am responsible for hanging artwork at one of our aEURoeArt in Public SpacesaEUR locations....

Phil Mokaraka Berry - Ko Whakatere te Maunga Ko Waima te Awa Ko Maamari te Waka Ko Te Mahurehure te Hapu Ko Nga Puhi te Iwi Ko Tuhirangi te Marae Kia ora, Phil Mokaraka Berry has been producing Contemporary Maori Art works for over ten years. His work consists of Maori myths and traditions based on well known stories and beliefs. He has produced a large series on Maui and his exploits and his final demise. Other works involve the connection between Papatuanuku (mother earth) and Maori and the sacredness of our whenua (land). He has also produced works on Kaitiaki (guardians), trying to capture the Mauri (life force) and the guardianship role of them and the relationship to their and our environments. His works are always evolving, sometimes simplifying, sometimes complex He uses the kowhaiwhai (maori designs)as a symbol of being and celebrating being Maori and also linking back towards our/my Whakapapa (heritage). ...

Helena Wierzbicki - I have always enjoyed art from an early age. This love of Art has stayed with me and developed and grown, and now, I cannot imagine wanting to do anything else. Making art, for me, is an innate response to the inner and outer worlds, and a balancing act between the intuitive and the considered. I am interested in exploring my natural abilities and enthusiasm for my commitment to do an art within my innermost thoughts and emotions. Shades of colors and lines turning images of beings into landscapes and symbols. My art is an evolving process, I take and represent only elements which are the essence of the imaginary being. I rely on my desires for beauty, poetics and seduction. "Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures." Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887) ...

Chris Jehn - I am primarily a self taught artist and have always felt creative. I worked my way through college by teaching crafts at an arts and crafts store, everything from embroidery and macrame to tole painting and pottery. I have taken numerous workshops from other practicing artists. Being with a group of other artists creates a synergy that inspires me. I now primarily work with acrylics and collage. I especially love intense color, and have made a study of color composition. One of the main reasons I live in Colorado is because almost everywhere you look there is something wonderful, and IaEURtmm compelled to try to paint what I see and feel. ...

Charlotte Reber - Paint flowing onto canvas, melting into a utopian reality is where Charlotte finds her passion for art. Whether a seascape, a historic prairie, or an abstract garden of flowers, you will imagine yourself being transported to into these acrylic wonderlands. Charlotte is a wife, homeschool mom of 3 wonderful kids, and a natural born artist....

Aisha Haider - Welcome to my gallery. I was born in Lancashire in England. I am a self taught artist and have been painting ever since I can remember. I paint in acrylics because of its versatility. Painting has always been a strong part of my life and it is who I am. Painting is an unquechable addiction that I get immense pleasure out of. I paint in an impressionistic style using a little bit of inspiration that comes from nature whilst adding my own elements too. My painting are mostly vibrant and modern. My favourite subjects are umbrellas, reflections and trees. I am very fortunate to have sold over 500 paintings in the Uk and 5 other countries. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and find something to your taste. aEURoeAs music is the poetry of sound, so is painting the poetry of sightaEUR James McNeil Whistler...

Denise Dalzell - For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to stories. They are my part of an exchange. An Interaction. A conversation. If one definition for the word Element is "A place where one feels comfortable", then my current work is a consideration of how to discover one's element, where one fits in. Where I might fit in. As a child, I loved projects that involved telling a story with an image. Images of scenes, of places, of occasions, and of objects collected. The images that make up my stories come from what catches my eye. Stories that welcome another person to join in, to add their experiences and become a part of the story. Scenes that allow one to connect their own dots, to fill in their own blanks, to create a shared scene, a new story. My focus is experiences from my travels. I've realized that the perspective that I gain from these travels also includes my everyday life. I employ Acrylics and Colored Pencils to compose contrast, and lighting to illustrate these stories. Each of my pieces depicts an independent scene. When several of these scenes are strung together, they become components of...
