What we think about art

Art has no boundaries, no wrong nor right.

Mixing paint with emotion creates feeling to once an empty canvas.  In art there's critic and pleasure, it can be debated, admired or hated.

If you believe you can find all these classifications in your work, then it becomes a work of art.

Just black and white ?

Just black and white ?

How dull would this world be .. with no colours to see? Just black and white.“ What a terrible fright! Painting is such a way of life and style. I'm not in denial.
Your"style"

Your
"style"

A brush becomes a brush only when given a stroke. It can be used in all directions, even provoke. Painting talk to one's brain and it is not insane. Its the foundation of what we see. Let go, and in your style .... be free.
  • CHRISTOPHER

    Born with a natural talent to create, inspired by the way things interact with one another and always busy doing something that was fascinating to others. I am an self tought artist from Pretoria and love to do realistic paintings and abstract art. I am also a poet and writes about life experiences by looking at the world and individual's emotions and thoughts.

    „Wanting to give the viewer an opportunity to see through my eyes the way I see things“

    My paintings are energetic, colourful and filled with emotion. I inherited a number of styles and techniques, therefore there is no specific trend that I would like to follow. Looking at anything as a possibility that needs to be put into reality.
