Arthur Brouthers

“My work is inspired by the individuality of all physical things and energies found in the natural world. Regardless of their differences, everything has the ability to exist harmoniously; plants, animals, rock formations, stars, gases, and all there is.
When painting abstracts I attempt to mimic those inconsistent laws of perfection.”

Arthur Brouthers is well known in the world of social media as a pioneer of an abstract fluid painting technique that achieves cellular like separations, with the use of acrylic paints and other chemical agents. In his figurative works, these unconventional methods are used as bottom layers or the “skins” of his subjects. Arthur uses anywhere from 4 to 15 layers of clear resin between layers of acrylic paint, pigmented inks, and spray paint to show depth, giving a 3D effect.
