Medium: Oils, Acrylics and Enamel Paints
Angie Wright is an emerging artist working primarily in acrylic, oil and enamel paints. She employs bold use of colour woven into abstract expressionist landscapes to produce original and striking paintings. An accomplished fine portrait artist Angie’s true passion is in colour and how arrangement of colour can produce a different emotional experience of art. Angie Wright was born in Doncaster in the United Kingdom. She has travelled and lived all over Europe including France, Spain and the Canary Islands. She is currently working in Portugal.
“I don’t follow a set format for producing art. Every time I create something I try to experiment with the paint to explore how the effects can reflect what is happening in the image. I love the way colour flows and how colours can jar or soothe the eye, juxtaposed to bold colour choice I find intrigue in paintings with fine art details and suggestion. I want to create paintings which draw the viewer in, which makes them stop…and then see more than the initial abstract form and colour. These are paintings which hold the eye and where unexpected grace and elegance can be found amongst a fierce hub of colour. I like to work on oversized canvases and most of my artwork is large scale.
I was recently contacted by the BBC for my art to be featured on DIY SOS to support the victims of the Grenfell fire tragedy. I have also had a feature written about my art in a UK monthly magazine publication “Artists and Illustrators”
I have shown my work in both collective and individual exhibitions and it has been selected for promotional work by major online galleries.”
