welcome

As the V&A gears up to stage Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser, it felt rather fitting to have Antonio Segura Donat’s art on this month’s cover. The Spanish artist has created his own version of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, fantastical visions of candy-coloured worlds. There’s an underlying message to the work too, with endangered animals marked by targets, a sign that the fun won’t last forever. Antonio is also a reminder that it doesn’t matter where you start with art, it’s where you end up that counts. He was drawn to street art as a teenager but he channelled that enthusiasm and skill into his career proper. He still paints murals, but he also creates imaginative acrylic paintings too. I’ve really been enjoying reading about all of your artistic journeys too. We’ve printed some…

letters

SNAP HAPPY I’m a regular reader of Artists & Illustrators and, although I am not able to draw or paint figuratively, I do enjoy abstract work including photography. So, I was very interested to read the email from Carol Preston [Letters, Issue 415]. I also use photos I’ve taken of all kinds of things, and I layer and blend them in an app called Procreate. I can digitally paint on the layers with brushes I can create myself. This digital process is inspiring me to explore real paint and brushes – probably the wrong way around to approach things! I’m semi-retired and I am loving this creative process – and your magazine. Thank you for publishing Carol’s email. It’s good to know of other, like-minded photographic artists. Sharon Eynon, via Facebook We’re glad you are…

child’s play

I’m writing this as my daughter Daisy sleeps. It’s quite apt because this drawing was also completed whilst Daisy was sleeping. Drawing used to be a huge part of my life when I was younger. Until Daisy came along, I’d forgotten the simple joy you get from picking up a pencil and making marks on paper. In an era of social media and digital screens, especially in my job in advertising, it offers escapism. This particular drawing only happened because my daughter was drawing and now asks me to draw things for her too. What started out as a simple sketch turned into something more and sparked a renewed interest in art. This picture represents the start of a new adventure for Daisy and me. Your magazine has also helped me…

1 RAPHAEL: PRINCE ALBERT’S PASSION 6 May to 6 September As part of the worldwide celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, this exhibition also tells the fascinating story of how the great Renaissance master captured the imagination of Prince Albert. In 1853, the Prince Consort embarked on a pioneering research project that collected some 5,000 prints and photographs of all known works by the Italian. As well as exploring the methods of these reproductions, there will be a chance to see some of the artist's original drawings, as well as Queen Victoria’s own sketch after Raphael. The Lightbox, Woking. www.thelightbox.org.uk 2 MAKING AN IMPRESSION: PRINTS BY MANET, PISSARRO AND THEIR CONTEMPORARIES 27 April to 11 July This touring exhibition drawn from the Ashmolean’s collection explores the ways in which the Impressionists embraced advances in artistic technology…

1. NEGATIVE SPACE Inma Garcia-Carrasco: “If there is one tool that gets overlooked, it is the use of negative space as a compositional element. “Look at the abstract shapes of negative spaces and concentrate on representing those, rather than the positive ones. “Like a puzzle that comes together, you will see how the addition of those negative shapes means that the entire painting becomes the subject to be represented.” 2. PAINT REMOVAL James Bland: “Periodically scrape back the paint on your canvas. I use a palette knife for this, and sometimes my fingers or a cotton rag. “Doing this has many benefits. For one thing, it cuts down on unintended wet-in-wet mixing, which is especially problematic with mixes that contain a lot of Titanium White. “For another, it erodes passages that have become too resolved. This makes…
