#TOAFtakeover @timjfowler here! Leicester born and based artist. This is my stand at last years TOAF at the Truman brewery. This body of work is based mainly on iconic silver screen figures. Colour is a big part of my work and I love the contrast between these black and white figures and my modern, colourful style of painting. #TheOtherArtFair #TakeOverTuesday
#TOAFtakeover I often describe my paintings as mixed media but the majority is painted using acrylic. I also use spray paint, marker pen, oil stick, oils and graffiti inks. I like mixing matt surfaces with high gloss dribbles, flat stencils with layered brush strokes and blended spray paint with textured acrylic. All helping to build up layers of intense colour. #TheOtherArtFair #TakeOverTuesday @timjfowler
#TOAFtakeover A lot of people are interested in how I approach a painting. So I have started taking regular progress shots and putting them together. This is one from one of my favourite pieces from my exhibition. Judy Garland as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz #TheOtherArtFair #TakeOverTuesday @timjfowler
