Skittle sensation – Callum_stephen_

Why did you pick this picture?

Because the painting hasn’t really been coverd with photorealism 

Where did the idea come from?

From a child’s reaction in a sweet shop 

What does this art mean to you?

It took 4 months to paint it and it’s my passion 

What can you tell us about yourself?

I’m 23 , I’m just a normal bricklayer and I’ve always painted and something triggerd when I met an aboriginal lady she called Phylis in Alice springs she taught me to feel art from my heart ! I began to paint everyday , and I’m not looking back ! 

This isa follow on re write up about myself .

After coming back from Alice Springs my family had converted the old stables into a amazing Art Studio.

I started to read , especially VanGogh letters to Theo and Surrealism began to ignite me especially Jim Warren . I read and read watched u tube and changed my style . Then approx two years ago Jim Warren placed my paintings of Star Wars etc on his page .

What more can you tell us about your art?

I inspire to take art to a new level

I awake every morning at 5 , paint until 7 , return at 6 until 10 pm… one painting (photo realism takes 300 hours to paint) I enjoy the intricate detail , it is relaxing to make a article life like .

By painting skittles I was propelled a little further onto the ITV news and Newspapers. 

Each painting takes longer but I am passionate 🙂
