Just cuz you asked nicely....
My name is
Angel and I'm an alcho....no wait wrong place wrong time....
I never really intended to go down this whole art path, it was always my intention to be a computer guy, I was a hairs breadth from going to do a computer programming qualification...then someone told me I could draw....well in truth they said.. "hey that's good ....for you anyway" and so the great adventure began. I quit computers for a pencil and paint and wandered off scratching my head.
Confused I took my high school art course, passed, a National diploma in Art and design, passed, a Higher national diploma, Passed and then I took my Batchelor of arts degree...and passed...by then I had a lot more compliments (well more like "Hey you drew THIS?" which I took as a compliment). That was a few years ago, since then I kinda went back to computers, then went running back to pencils because in all the time it took to get my certificates computers became scary.... then went running back to computers, I am estimating a panicked run to pencils any time soon though...
What is art
to me? Umm pictures mostly...true art though evokes a response, whether
it makes you 'feel' part of the image or just makes you feel like throwing
it in a fire so it doesn't offend your eyes. That is the aim of true art.
That is the aim of 90% of artists, for me, I try for balance some of my
pictures go for the jugular so to speak, to make you feel the image in
its basest sense, to pull an emotion out of you with a pair of red hot
tweezers, others are there just to look at and go OOooooh
if everyone who visits my gallery leaves remembering one image then my job here is done.
