The Buzz - Abstract Digital Painting

Close up of the abstract digital painting
This artwork stands loud and proud of the wall and is another multi coloured abstract artwork that has been digitally drawn myself. With these digital paintings I wanted to use happy colours that would brighten up the home and lift your mood as you gazed into the painting and submersed yourself in the mash up of swirls. Secretly I think they send out positive vibes to anyone who has the artwork in their gaze (this could be beneficial on a Monday morning before work). The background colour is blue and I wanted it to represent a beautiful summers day when you lay back on the grass and look up at the sky and it beams back at you in all its brilliance. The flowing vibrant swirls that embrace each other across the digital painting represent the colourful spectacle of summer that intertwine with the haziness from the heat of the sun. 

This digital abstract painting is printed onto high quality canvas before being hand mounted onto 1.5 inch stretcher bars. A fine coat of varnish is applied to the canvas to help protect the artwork and which also brings out the vivid colours of the piece. If you have any questions about any of my artwork, photographs or illustrations please feel free to contact me. Sam Freek (The Artist)

Forgotten My Bra - Contemporary Photography with an Illustrated Twist

Forgotten Bra - Twisted Illustration by Sam Freek
 I took this photograph of a road sign thinking I would create some artwork out of it one day and today I did. It looked to me like the man is pulling the woman away and is wanting to go traveling around the world with their tiny suitcases and with not a care in the world until the woman starts to run and realises she doesn't have a bra on as her boobs fly around uncontrollably all over the place. This thought may have come from a friend who wants to come to the gym with me but tends not to wear a bra and she has rather big boobies. I have agreed to go the gym with her as long as she keeps her 'puppies' under control by wearing a sports bra. There shall be no black eyes whilst running on the treadmill then :-)

 I really enjoyed digitally drawing this artwork on the computer, you could call it a digital painting as this artwork has just been created from scratch on the computer. This artwork reminds me of the sweet counter as a child and how I try pull myself up by clinging onto the counter top and I would stand on my tip toes to to look across the mountain of multi coloured penny sweets. My thoughts as a child was that when I got older I would buy all of the sweets and I would be able to eat as many as I wanted without my mum restricting me to ten ha ha ha. I've never bought the whole sweet counter as an adult as now I love eating pies. 

This abstract canvas art is a digital painting which is then printed onto high quality canvas before being hand mounted onto 1.5 inch stretched bars. A fine layer of varnish is added to the print for protection and but which also brings out the colours in the artwork to create a stunning piece of art.

Orange abstract urban art for the modern home
I love this orange abstract artwork, its grungy, random, industrial, craggy and is a feast for the eye balls. I knew when I created this piece from the original photograph that it would look amazing as an abstract art piece. The orange tones against the greys and blues make this artwork really 'pop out' to create an eye catching work of art. The photograph is printed onto high quality canvas before being hand mounted onto 1.5 inch stretcher bars (which makes the artwork stand out from your wall). A coat of varnish is applied to the canvas to help protect the artwork and which also increases the vividness of the colours.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via my website - Sam Freek (The Artist).

Modern abstract art for the contemporary home by Freek

This contemporary abstract urban wall art was created by myself using various photographs I have taken and then digitally manipulated and conjoined them to form a striking piece of abstract artwork. You could call this a collage of abstract photographs with each photo providing a shape or form which when unified creates a stunning spectacle for the eye balls. When I am creating artworks like this its almost as though I am completing a jigsaw puzzle as I lay and move each photo around until I finally get the eureka moment and it feels complete.  Having spoke about the process I am itching to create another abstract artwork now. 

This abstract canvas art is available to buy on the website in various sizes and can be delivered anywhere in this big old world of ours. This canvas art is printed onto canvas and hand mounted onto 1.5" stretcher bars before being coated in a varnish which not only helps to protect the canvas but also brings out the colours in the artwork. If you have any questions about my artwork then feel free to contact me via the website or if you would like to leave a comment below then that would be great. Thank you....... The End of Transmission......... (That's just me being stupid).

Late Night Walk by Sam Freek - Urban Photography   
If I could stay awake 24 hours a day, 7 days a week I would but I need around 8 hours sleep to feel human unfortunately. I do like walking around at night (this makes me sound creepy) but its quiet with no traffic or people walking about so it feels like I have the place to myself. This photograph was taken at about 3 in the morning and all I could hear was the sound of the sea with the fresh air brushing against the skin on my face keeping me awake.

A photograph of a photo of a hotel I stayed in which was taken in its heyday. I like the yellow and blue colours in this photograph and the random bits of blu-tack dotted around.

Break Out Area by Sam Freek - Urban Photography

I find break out areas interesting especially outside factories and industrial estates where workers congregate to have a break from the daily grind or to gossip about their boss/co-workers.
