Len Collins | Artist
Encaustica is my exploration to use wax in art. Encaustic (wax) painting originates in ancient Greece and Egypt where artists would use wax and other precious materials like gold leaf to fashion the death masks of wealthy patrons. My work is influenced by a deep love of ancient cultures and pays homage to these amazing artists and artifacts. My work exploits this deeply textural medium to capture lush, intensely colourful abstracts and portraits. I also am happy to work with you to develop a custom commission.
I hope you enjoy my work and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
