PAINTWORKS
POPUP ART STUDIO

Our Pop-up Art Studio event produced two stunning pieces, selected from works by over 20 local artists, which are now displayed in the Crest Nicholson showhomes.

'PAINTWORKS LIP'
STEPHEN QUICK OF SPLINTERED STUDIOS

For this piece Stephen familiarised himself with Paintworks past and present online and created a fantastic Paintworks decoupage base for the piece. He then used spray paint to add colour and texture to the piece before preparing his stencils. Using three layered stencils and spray paints, Stephen brought the piece to life with the face and finished off the piece, after 10 hours work with 'Paintworks' written in her pulled down lip. Awesome work Stephen and so great to watch, congratulations!

'GELEENTHEID'
ASTRID FOREMAN

For this piece, Astrid though about a trip to South Africa she took with family where she was on a boat thinking about her upcoming move to Bristol and the opportunities that would present themselves to her. The original picture Astrid worked from was taken by her mother which makes the piece even more special. Astrid spent over 10 hours creating this beautiful portrait, glued to her canvass, completely engrossed in what she wanted to create.
