Graffiti XXII is an original abstract painting by Sarah Foat. The painting is a 10x10cm square featuring a variety of mark-making techniques in contrasting colours inspired by graffiti. The layering of acrylic shapes and forms reveal intricate levels of detail. Fascinated by the interaction of paint layers over time, Sarah uses colourful gestures to contemplate the nature of street art around us.
Sarah Foat, artist, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Sarah Foat graduated in 1998 from Bath Spa University College with a degree in Fine Art. I then ran my own art gallery for 10 years exhibiting and selling contemporary art and craft alongside my own work. Since returning to my artwork after becoming a mother, I am now pursuing my passion for abstract painting.
My recent paintings are inspired by a piece of graffiti that I regularly walk past on the school-run - in particular the layers of previous graffiti tags, vivid colours and beautiful close up compositions.
I use acrylics to explore textures and colours reminiscent of graffiti, with a continual process of applying and removing paint in order to reveal glimpses of previous layers. I enjoy experimenting with mark-making and investigating contrasts, not only with colour but also texture, tone, line and space. I hope in some way to capture my vision of the beautiful essence of graffiti in my paintings.
