Millville, NJ - Artist TAWES has discovered a new way to manipulate color on the canvas to create a new way to view art.
“Artists have painted how light plays upon the objects that are painted on to the canvas. What I have discovered is a way to paint that interacts with the light that shines on the canvas,” says TAWES. “In my artistic career over the past 30 years I have endeavored to achieve something new with my art, something that had not been seen before. All my life I have heard the term ‘There is nothing new under the Sun’, so I decided to look above the Sun and be open to the possibilities, and I have found it.”
Now, with the new technologies in lighting with LEDs and using the paints in innovative ways, the canvas is no longer static, transformation and movement may be created. With LEDism there is not just one painting on the canvas, there are 4, 5 or even 6 paintings on the same canvas!
Now the opportunity for you to see for the very first time, what TAWES has created is...
