What inspires you?

Over the years I have tried various styles and techniques. For now I've settled on a Jackson Pollock-style 'action painting' approach. I love the sense of motion in them, and the textures and depth created with the different layers of paint.

Jackson Pollock was an American painter most known for his 'drip' technique during the 1940s. I first came across this style through The Stone Roses whilst a student in Manchester - guitarist John Squire used this action technique to paint the band's album artwork.

I also love combining this style with portraits of some of the most recognisable music and sporting icons. I think this 'action portrait' technique is a really striking combination - it's great creating faces that people can connect with.


What do you paint with?

All of my paintings are acrylic on canvas - the most versatile, practical and fast-drying medium for what I want to do.


What quality are the prints like?

All prints are sharp-resolution, gallery-quality giclée prints, printed on thick and durable (10.3 mil/192 gsm) matte paper. Perfect for framing to make a statement and inject energy and creativity into any room. Ideal for gifts or to treat yourself. 


How long will my order take to arrive?

Products typically arrive within 8-12 days. Trust me, they're worth the wait.


Can you deliver the prints framed?

I don't currently offer a framing option as the postage costs don't work out too well. There are many frames available on Amazon (my prints all come in standard frame sizes) - feel free to send me a message or email kerwinblackburn@gmail.com and I can recommend some good brands.


Are your portrait paintings Photoshopped?

No! They are entirely hand-drawn, hand-painted, hand-taped and then painted some more. Watch the videos below or click here to learn more about the process.


Can I commission a custom piece?

Yes! Commissions are available, please send me a message.
