Helping artists in more ways than one

read all about the new Mersey Gateway Bridge painting project 2018.

In issue #8 of painters Tubes, we featured an artist who had submitted a number of works for consideration to be featured in the magazine. Most of the work were landscape paintings, and although they were excellent, they was not what TUBES were looking for, at the time. Landscape painting had been extensively covered in tubes issue #5. (click to read free on line)

The artist explained that the landscape work created were essential to help fund ongoing research with preparatory painting for a series of very large paintings, ones that took figurative painting into another direction and subject line that normal figure work, but it would be some time before they were fully resolved.

This special series of  paintings, (the artist explained), was connected with a specific investigation into human relationships through the eyes of another age. And how the myths related to our own time. Tubes Editor was quite taken by the paint application and the subject and arranged a personal visit to the artists studio. It was here that he viewed the full range of work and as a consequence featured the artist in issue #8.

btw: issue#8 alone has had an audience of over 9,000  (click here to read free on line )

Some time later, the artist, was  financing the large series of  work by trying hard to sell selling landscape painting, but one day was surprised by a visitor to the studio. The visitor explained that they were so impressed by the work (seen in painters Tubes magazine) that they wanted to provide funds for the artist, to assist in the creation and finishing off the series. The artist contacted Tubes and told the Editor of the news which “..was in most part, due to the article in painters Tubes magazine…”

For all of us at Tubes, that one story, makes the case for painters Tubes magazine as the most influential Art Magazine real and fills us with delight…. So to the artist in question, congratulations and hoping you paint many more great works of art…all the best from all of us at painters Tubes magazine.

contact the Editor at: tubes@telia.com if you have an interesting series of paintings you would like to discuss or a studio visit (live, or on line or via Skype or apple Face-Time)
