by Samuel Deacon
Samuel Deacon is a London based abstract artist who creates beautiful textured paintings.
His colourful and textural work has been exhibited in galleries across London and he has recently begun to sell his abstract paintings to private clients and trade professionals for showrooms and interior design projects.
Samuel was drawn to abstract paintings with a multitude of colour since his Art studies 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 and Jackson Pollock, and the sculptural works of Louise Nevelson and Rebecca Horn.
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 reflects in his work life and through his paintings.
Samuel's artwork is an exploration of colour and texture, using materials such as clay, wood and wall filler with acrylic paints, liquid paints and spray paints. Samuel's harmonious and detailed compositions references nature, music and subjective emotion which dictate his colour choices and use of material.
