I create fluid acrylic abstract pieces using various acrylic pouring techniques to achieve vibrant pieces on canvas or on vinyl records (without ever using a paint brush!). I started my fluid painting journey in October 2016 and I relish the freedom it brings to combine an element of art, chemistry and chaos! I also love the way everyone sees something different in my work!
Fluid acrylic painting is deeply therapeutic for me. I started for 2 reasons – the first was a way of releasing stress, as in order to achieve good results there must be an element of letting the universe take over the painting, but it has taken some time to get the results to the level where I am happy to share my work. The second reason is that my Mother was an Artist who created amazing classical pieces. While I was growing up I used to watch her turn a blank canvas or block of clay into something amazing and wishing I could do the same, but in my own way. I believe I have now found a form of art I can really fall in love with as I get as much from it as I give!
Each one was an absolute pleasure to create, and is unique and is created using high quality materials. I am happy to offer customised work in any size, or to suit any palette

City Arts is proud to present Stephenson Singleton’s collection to the public, for the first time.
A fascinating body of work, dating from the 1940s, created in a variety of mediums. Stephenson’s drawings and paintings are a rare collection, which have been stored for decades, since his death in 1985.
Born in 1895, Stephenson’s early life was brutal and lonely, creating a young man who was at odds with society and its conventions. This ultimately led to the creation of a dynamic, startling and challenging
Stephenson’s artwork addresses a variety of topics, from politics to colonialism, the male condition to the sacred feminine, childhood and the onset of aging… with over 200 pieces in his collection there is something for everyone!
Monday 9th – Thursday 12th is by private appointment only – please contact us for further details.
