Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 4 an incredible event, surpassing the glory of previous years yet again. Coming home on the plane this last time around felt like I was leaving a sanctuary of colleagues, friends and incredible inspiration. I had more paintings in my booth than ever before and received enthusiastic reactions to my work from peers and the public who came to see the show. Here are some highlights from the exhibition:
It’s always hard to try and sum up these events in a few brief paragraphs. Spectrum is so many things rolled into one: an art exhibit, a special one of a kind gathering of creative minds and a celebration of all the incredibly varied fields of “fantastic art”. Every time, I meet people I never would have expected to find there from all over the world. There is a dynamic sort of energy that just courses through the room as everyone’s jaws drop at the incredible work showcased all across the hall. I received great feedback from fellow illustrators and great painters who I aspire to emulate, and have only just started to set down in writing a new batch of goals and benchmarks to strive for. Spectrum is a massive charging of the creative battery that sustains my practice. Special thanks go to Cathy and Arnie Fenner for starting this incredible event and also to John Fleskes for carrying the tradition forward. See you all next year!
