Kevin BandeeKevin's vivid original images are inspired by fractals, infinite complex pictures of repeating geometric shapes that exist within nature. They can be found in the intricate details of trees, snowflakes, clouds and crystals, and he uses their shapes and concepts in combination with dazzling colours and some of nature's most beautiful creations. His ambition to recreate these amazing natural effects in his paintings was where his artistic journey began.
Kevin has explored a wide range of subjects, but when he came across the symbolism of butterflies he was inspired to paint them. He forged an immediate and immensely strong connection with this subject; through further research he discovered that butterflies are important symbols in many different cultures, often connected with joy, peace and transformation.
Kevin uses acrylics and resin to create aqueous surface design. His technique is indebted to the Turkish art of 'ebru', involving marbling, pouring, chemical reaction, fluid and flow. He revisits each piece many times to ensure that the three dimensional effect is working in perfect harmony with his portrayals of nature.
