About My Business:


Phil Kendall is a 65 year old studio based artist. lives with his wife in Peterborough UK. He established The Art Studio of Meltemi in 2006 and his website in 2008. His art is available only from his website. He paints regularly, nearly daily, producing some 30 works of art per year along with a growing number of specially commissioned paintings. He works only in acrylics, this is largely due to discovering them, while he was still at school in the late 1950's when they were first introduced to the world of the artist. He was captured by them instantly seeing them as the way forward for art and artists in the bold new world. Today he sources his personally selected professional grade acrylic paints and inks from across the world. They enable Phil to deliver the bold, vibrant colours of his art-vision in a way that few other artists' materials can. His acrylics also deliver those iridescent and metallic finishes that his abstract art exploits. He has tried all of the well known traditional artist's mediums at some time, rejecting all of them for a variety of health reasons. The key factors with acrylics is that they: are very clean to use, have a very low skin irritancy and they do not have any solvent fumes. Unlike watercolours acrylics offer a long life of colour stability without any significant fading. Unlike oils the full depth of the acrylic paint is normally fully dried within 24 hours and they do not crack or peel away from the canvas. Acrylics are just as technically demanding as both oils and watercolours. Phil's paintings are an invitation for the viewer to take part in a subtle distillation of reality by seeing the world through his eyes allowing the boundaries between figurative and abstract art to merge. A unique contemplative, tranquil, moment is transformed using a strong sense of light and vivid colour. Phil Kendall's hand-painted works of art are more about something rather than paintings of something. Through his art he aspires to communicate the; grace, elegance & the lost beauty of his chosen subject. Frequently a memory of a place that he and his wife have explored is crystallised as a painting. Their travel, so far, has taken them through: Europe, Canada, Peru & the Caribbean. Greece will always be his special inspirational place in his odyssey of art and travel.
