Pop Art - Warhol Style
Pop Art is a style often associated with Andy Warhol. This style of painting brought art back to the material realities of everyday life. Pop art emerged in the mid-1950s in England, but realized its fullest potential in New York in the 1960s where it shared, with Minimalism, the attentions of the art world. In Pop art, a sense of the epic was replaced with the everyday, and mass-produced commodities were awarded the same significance as the unique. The gap between high art and low art was thus intentionally eroded
Abstact Expressionist in the style of Jackson Pollock, an American painter, the commanding figure of the Abstract Expressionist movement.
By the mid 1940s he was painting in a completely abstract manner, and the `drip and splash' style for which he is best known emerged with some abruptness in 1947. Instead of using the traditional easel he affixed his canvas to the floor or the wall and poured and dripped his paint from a can; instead of using brushes he manipulated it with `sticks, trowels or knives'
We can take your photo and manipulate it into a "Polluck Style" painting and then print it for you as a Canvas Giclee or on Fine Art Papers.
Questions, just stop in or give me a call, John
We all remember the watercolor paint boxes we had as a kid. Because of that, watercolor often has not been thought of as a medium for the serious artist.
However Watercolor is not a medium for the fainthearted. It's difficult to control the paint and hard to calculate how a brush full of color will behave on a damp piece of expensive paper.
We can take your favorite photograph and digitally transform it to look like a fine watercolor painting. Printed on a high quality watercolor paper it will really impress.
On this page you will find some examples of how we can turn a photo of one of your favorite characters into a great Caricature portrait. We can even add your favorite theme or text.

A cartoon is a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works
We can change your photo into this art form and even add thought bubbles.
A Line Drawing is made with lines only, gradations in tone being provided by the spacing and thickness of the lines.
We can recreate that look using your photos and then print it out on a Fine Art Textured Paper.
A photo mosaic, is a picture (usually a photograph) that has been divided into rectangular sections, each of which is replaced with another photograph that matches the target photo
Photo Mosaics make for great wall art when printed in a larger format.
