As you all know I dig ART! When I started my blog years ago I didn’t want to be put in a box and only talk about design/architecture. I wanted to talk about all the arts I was into which are the topics on my blog, one being ART. Anytime I come across art that catches my eye I like to blog about it and today I would like to introduce you to my latest find, acrylic artist Adam Cook.
An Interview with Artist Adam Cook
Artist Adam Cook
I found Adam Cook or should I say Adam Cook’s art found me on social media, it caught my eye. I love color and Adam’s work burst with amazing hues that seemed to jump out and grab you into them. I was thrilled when Adam agreed to be interviewed by Dig This Design as we love ART!
Why is acrylic your medium of choice?
AC: I like working in acrylic with a few different brushes. I tend to get lost in the piece as I’m working and paint just allows the process to keep flowing as naturally as possible. The way I paint is very fluid, with quick decisions and little thought in between, so only using a few tools keeps things simple. The different brushes also give the piece different dynamics and line contrast. I love the power of a simple line.
Pop Culture by Artist Adam Cook
What is your obsession with coke bottles?
The influences of Matisse and Picasso really shine through in your work. I too love these artists which is why I was drawn to your work.
Woman are Beautiful!
AC: That’s very interesting that you see male and female in the piece. For me, there is never struggle in my work because I love what I do so completely, even the difficult things.
AC: These two pieces are inspired by Keith Haring and Henri Matisse, which sometimes I love to merge my influences as you can see here.
