The process of the

The process of the painting’s creation was a magical one, that took us right to the pulse of what makes AKUT’s work so impressive. The 80cm x 100cm work started its journey as a soft charcoal sketch on the canvas. The image of a girl, removing her face as a mask which doubles as that which society sees as her ‘real’ face. Under it, a chrome face, lifeless, smooth, and void of personality. Only her eyes (a trademark talent showcasing AKUT’s abilities), seem to be real, however void of any emotions other than shame and regret. ↑ Intricate details, the tip of the Montana FINE ACRYLIC marker gives AKUT a broad range of marks and precision for greater depth and intimacy. → Despite its relatively small size, MAS- QUERADE is a haunting yet enchanting depiction of life for a modern-day young person. Although the message a hard pill to swallow, the image itself a mystical interpretation of the modern lay life of our youth and young people. The background, a connection to AKUT’s graffiti roots, is a dirty, earthy texture of tags and dark color, straight from his Montana GOLD cans and Montana ACRYLIC markers. Layers of acrylic paint are then converted into three-dimensional form by fine coats of paint mist from an array of colors from the Montana GOLD range. AKUT then adds the final touches to the hyper-real image by way of precision line work from his Montana ACRYLIC FINE and EXTRA FINE markers. Even elements of the chrome face are brought to life by perfectly placed colors applied in distinct marker generated lines. Although the message a hard pill to swallow, the image itself a mystical interpretation of the modern lay life of our youth and young people. No wonder the image sold at the exhibition. Take off your own mask in the privacy of your own home and be amazed by MASQUERADE. 122 Studio Insight Akut
