Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. Wassily Kandinsky. Strictly speaking, the word abstract means to separate or withdraw something from something else.
All of ZT Tosha’s paintings are made in a multi-step process of representation. He starts with a blank canvas, adding gray aerial perspective, while constantly rotating the canvas. Then he pours or splashes paint directly from their tubes onto a horizontal surface (drip technique), enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles. Taking his color palette from the scene that he sees at that moment, he paints to replicate the look of the original scene. His hallmark “blur” is sometimes achieved with a hard smear made by an aggressive pull with a squeegee.
ZT Tosha Prints:
All ZT Tosha Art prints are professionally produced to the finest archival standards. Each print is a limited edition fine art print, created, hand numbered and signed on the actual printed area by ZT Tosha. Frame is not included.
A high resolution signed limited edition print is worth a lot more than a standard photograph poster stuck to a canvas! When buying a limited edition print, the artist or printer’s proof versions are deemed rare and so are likely to hold more value.
