Kunjan Thankey Back

My oil and acrylic paintings usually show imaginary, dreamy, poetic new worlds in a naive/folk style. Sometimes they are imperfectly utopian. I love painting a sense of freedom /escape/ wonder/adventure/ long travels, with boats, paths and the stars. The landscapes are filled with otherworldly nature and often include the fundamental elements of water, air, fire and earth to express inner emotion, expanse, drama and grounding to the vision. I like to find something ‘pure/true’ in all my work and materials. My work can look different depending on the mediums I use or experiment with. For example, my digital art paintings can look very different to what I would paint in oils or acrylics.
