Kris Mercer

I am a motivated and passionate artist with the ability to use advanced digital technology and figurative art skills influenced equally by the pop art of the 70’s and Railway poster art.

My representational paintings are traditional with a contemporary twist.

A passion for architecture, an interest in people watching and my life long love of photography are the inspiration for many of my traditional style paintings.

These artworks cannot easily be slotted into any specific movement or style but are heavily influenced by the industrial and mechanical techniques used in pop art.

My aim is to capture a snapshot in time.

I can spend hours, sometimes days trying to find the right angle or view point.
The image is eventually expressed as an artwork in acrylics or oils on canvas or board.

This is a glimpse of how I build up a painting. The finished painting is here

My abstract paintings

on the other hand can be monotone or an explosion of colour depending on my mood.
Some are fluid like a soft melody, while others are solid, hard and discordant. Inspired by everything around me.

My media can be as wide ranging as my subject matter from oils and acrylics to chalk, pastels, printing inks and collage.
Look out for the small monoprints that I occasionally make.

 Also a published photographer

I sometimes use my photographs to produce mixed media and digital paintings.
