Attracted by the bright colours and reflections of the foil wrappers, Paul Wright’s resplendent paintings are testament to his skill as a photo-realist artist.
The prospect of painting a collection of brightly coloured sweets, would be enough to daunt most artists, but clearly Paul Wright approached the subject as a challenge with the specific aim of improving his already accomplished Airbrush technique.
An Airbrush, once mastered, becomes a perfect method to produce photo realistic images. It allows its user to control the amount, the pressure and the speed by which paint is finely sprayed on to a surface. It is a remarkably fastidious and intensely intricate way of producing an image, requiring a huge amount of patience and a tremendous amount of skill and experience.
Paul Wright’s combined talent and expertise enable him to produce works of the very highest caliber, taken to a notably accomplished level of intense and intricate detail. If you enlarge foil II the standard of photo-realism really does take your breath away.
