Ian MacintoshBiography: I am an artist and graphic designer specialising in painting with acrylics. I studied the History of Art & Architecture at the University of East Anglia and Graphic Design at the Norwich School of Art & Design in the United Kingdom. Mainly set against rural backgrounds the imagery of my canvases usually incorporates historical connotations. My early work is thematic, often involving figures of hatted men set in seventeenth century England. Of late that style has given way to an open one including greater variation of subject matter. I try to apply contrast within each image and sometimes this can provide a sense of drama to the overall picture and is left for affect. On starting each canvas there is often no hidden agenda. The themes on view usually evolve while I paint. Sometimes these can become quite involved. At other times these can remain quite simple. I try to stay as flexible as possible moving from one area to the next. I hope that within my paintings I am projecting something of an amalgamation of elements with the aim of producing something new and fresh. Country: United Kingdom Birthyear: 1969 Media: acrylic Style: expressionistic Subjects: people, portraits and characters
