Flowers As Paint stemmed from an honest attempt to recreate the physical beauty and brilliant engineering of everyday flowers on a more permanent platform – art. Flowers are so common in everyday life that their beauty often goes unnoticed. I have found that no man-made colors, or forms could compare with the natural pigments offered to us by earth’s palette. I wanted to make their exsquisitness everlasting and I have done this through Flowers As Paint.
Flowers As Paint uses handmade, natural pigments in each piece of artwork, which range from paintings to wall tiles. The style of pieces that can be commissioned is countless, each distinctive and totally unique. Pre-designed as well as custom work is available. Completed work, for sale, can be found on the “shop by” drop down menu. If you would like to discuss the nearly limitless possibilities of commissioned pieces by Flowers As Paint, prices or have any other questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow me on instagram @flowersaspaint
From the artist…
Thank you for visiting the latest installment of Flowers as Paint. My name is Brian Arditi and I hope any one of my pieces has brought a smile to your face. My exploration into using natural pigments as paint began a few years back. I was searching for a way to make the essence of flowers, timeless. My pursuit has led to a world of organic pigments, each richer and earthier than the last. From yellow-rock to orange peels, this has become an organically inspired style of art.
Over several trips across the country, eclipsing 25,000 driven miles, I personally collected all of the natural pigments used in each piece. These pigments have been hand gathered from numerous states including New Mexico, Texas, California and Montana. This art represents epic voyages across the United States, as well as years of experimentation. I hope you see the beauty in some of the pigments earth and America has to offer and in how I have chosen to present them. As this type of painting is constantly evolving I hope you join me for the journey.
