The Attic Art Studio produces encaustic, mixed media artwork. Encaustic is an extremely durable, ancient painting technique dating back to the 4th century B.C. By melting beeswax, natural resin and coloured pigments an organic paint is produced and then applied in layers, which are then bonded together using extreme heat. An obsession for the process and alchemy of art and for texture, colour and depth sees The Attic Art Studio adding other mixed media materials into the artwork resulting in beautiful, luminescent, 3D paintings, resin blocks and sculptures that invite you to interact with their tactile surface.
