Acrylic painting is known the world over as one of the more flexible of painting methods, with its invention in the mid-20th century giving artists of the time access to acrylics that would ensure their artistic creations would dry quicker than ever before.
Over time, painting with acrylics has become a great way for artists to portray vibrant images where colour intensity is desired. As plastics have evolved, so has the quality of painting with acrylic, with brightness, saturation and enhanced pigmentation detail resulting in some stunning works of art.
With the ability to easily alter the thickness, shine and overall texture of acrylics, artists have been able to add it to their wider colour palettes, particularly when looking to layer colours quickly due to its ability to dry within a few hours - making acrylic painting useful for depicting landscapes of varied hues.
Another benefit of acrylic painting highlighting its malleability is that it can shift into the sculpture and collage format, effectively becoming 3D as it can be peeled off a non-stick surface to create some fantastic variations in depth and perspective for the onlooker.
Famous acrylic paintings include Andy Warhol’s ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans’, while David Hockney’s depiction of laid back LA in the 1960s has long been an inspiration for acrylics artists including those we have on display for you below.
