July Featured Artist is Abu Hasnat. Abu Hasnat is a resident studio artist at our Cockpit Monday Studio project .
Abu Hasnat explores angular shapes and bold colours on a variety of surfaces and this gives his work a very distinct style. The use of different, sometimes unexpected and unusual materials makes his work appear daring and adventurous.
Abu explores potential relationships and connections between various objects, shapes, textures, materials and colours. His paintings demonstrate a strong understanding of colour as he moves quickly and with a certain confidence to create fluidity and motion. Even areas that are produced in a short amount of time still have depth and energy. He works on two levels: at first his work may seem slightly random, however when the viewer takes a closer look they can often see the thought that has gone into the finer detail, creating wonderful moments of surprise.
