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:

Evon Johnson - I am a Jamaican born United States Artist. I have been drawing since I was a child with my main medium being crayons fond memories of getting lost in drawing and coloring everything from comics to portraits of Jesus. Bottom line I create art because it is something I love to do. I also love showing what I have created with others. I especially love the expression on peoples face while they are pondering the aesthetics of what they are looking at. Some of the artists that had an influence on my work were artists such as Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, and Roy Lichtenstein. I also have an interest in photography, creating 3D Graphics and writing poetry. While I have a preference... more like a bias towards acrylic paints, I occasionally experiment with mixed media. I hope the viewers enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating them. ...

Stefan Fiedorowicz - The language of lyrical abstraction interpreted... by Michael Bouger 2008 Stefan Fiedorowicz, a Canadian now residing in Vienna Austria has amassed a most impressive resume with shows spreading out from Canada, United States and Europe. Fiedorowiczs work has often been compared to the great modernists of the past following the notable style of lyrical abstraction, a term meaning an opening to personal expression. While perhaps a compliment, this also seems a disservice to his striking talent. The emotion in my work comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inner part of each person... My work is intuitive colour is the language that I use to express an emotion. It is the interaction of colour that interests me. Fiedorowicz possesses something more than a painter following in the footsteps of others before. There is a supreme depth to his work that captures a newer sense of Modernism, something that is sadly missing from the current art scene. His shapes and lines infuse his paintings with a richly exotic symbolism of style. There is purpose and psychology to his work, conveying a sense of confidence from a broad spectrum of experience. Fiedorowiczs distinction as a modern painter is in ...

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...

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) ...

Mark Schwing - Ideally the artist is employed by society at large. The artist helps define culture and culture makes us who we are in whatever time and place we are at. Of course most of us are not living in caves anymore but even then art helped society function; helped the hunter hunt, showed people what to do. Art is still showing people what to do in a way. Whether it is raising awareness by showing what is going on, teaching by example or simply exploring ideas that give people ideas. My art is about ideas as much as anything else but it is a surrealistic and intuitive approach. So what is presented isn't a literal interpretation, it is more like exploring the idea with art. It is really another reality. It mirrors our reality and/or it is influenced by our reality. I can't help but be affected by what is going on around me and I am interested in the transcendental as well. Please visit my website, www.markschwing1.com, for more images....

Sowjanya Tirunagari - I am an emerging artist, mostly self taught. I have had great passion for art since my childhood. At this time of my life journey I have the desire to take my passion to a more professional level. Every art and every style inspires me. I love how the vibrant colors talk to each other and want to experiment with different styles of art. I am also a big nature lover and most of my art is trying to capture the beauty of it. Coming from a rich cultural background I also like to showcase it through my art. This is my first step towards advancing to the next level in my art journey. I hope you all will encourage me....

Jim Lively - Whether portrayed in the abstract, realism, or somewhere in between, I am most influenced by both the beautiful and unattractive components of contemporary urban culture. Many times, one painting will reflect both components. My art tends to focus upon interesting juxtapositions of close-up images of human faces. Often, the larger images border upon realism and are caught expressing a panoply of emotions usually directed at the other images that share the canvas. Several of my recent works such as the tongue in cheek entitled "Lenin and Things" contain unlikely combinations of images such as a statue of Lenin which is dwarfed by a billboard size fashion model displaying a vacuous stare. A number of works contain both large images and interrelated small images. For example in the painting "Staring at Natalie", all the smaller images are a depiction of a collective group of voyeurs staring at a larger image of a posed fashion model. I want those viewing the painting to be the ultimate voyeur. The viewer is not only drawn initially to the larger image in its own right but also cannot help but then notice the relationship of the smaller images to the large image. Works displayed ...

Emilio Merlina - I was born in 1950 in the North East of Italy from a polish mother and a sicilian father. I toured the world until I was 35, then I returned to Italy and picked up again my old passion painting and sculpture. As for myself, I can only say thoughts and paintings, paintings and thoughts. Everything maybe useless, however everything is life. i?1/2The human being leaves its signs, graffiti, indian dreams and imagination. Now I only have left a few more possibilities to express the colors which are not. Only the sign, scratched, angry or brushed is the witness. The sign has passed from there and there it has lived.i?1/2 Emilio Merlina Some hear if a door opens Others hear a latch which opens or closes Others more they hear the Angel when he turns over a page of the Great Book From the novel Missa Sine Nomine By Ernst Wiechert I have words which relegate my hunger And the hunger which owns my body but which do not confine them I have words which are both my confined hunger and body By the Italian poetess Paola Lovisolo ...
