Samuel Deacon is a London based abstract artist who creates beautiful textured paintings.
Samuel has been drawn to abstract paintings with a multitude of colour since studying Art in his home town in Wiltshire. He explored and developed his technique through many subjects and mediums, finding inspiration from the paintings by artists such as Frank Bowling, Gerard Richter and Jackson Pollock.
Samuel has a degree in Interior Architecture and currently works as a wine cellar designer where he is able to exercise his spatial skills, creating functional masterpieces in a combination of joinery, glass and metal. The love of materials and textures reflects in his work life and in his paintings.
Samuel's artwork is an exploration of colour and texture, achieving his signature style using a combination of materials including clay and plaster with acrylic paints, liquid paints and spray paints. Samuel's detailed compositions references nature, music and subjective emotion which dictate his colour choices and use of material.
Bloomin’ Beautiful is an original abstract composition using a combination of plaster and colourful acrylic paints on a 40cm x 30cm x 2cm canvas.
Shades of green, blues and purples are layered over a plaster background to create my signature textured look. The combinations of colours reminded me of a colourful natural landscape similar to previous paintings such as Into and Return to the Garden.
