Mike O’Neill: Pareidolia Acrylics on canvas
I was born in Liverpool
and studied Display & Exhibition Design.
Also Art & Design at Bootle College of Art in Liverpool.
For many years I worked as a Display Artist for several companies
and department stores including almost 20 years with Chanel Perfumes & Cosmetics.
In 1999 I became a self employed Artist & Designer.
During this time I also designed a number of multi media events
And collaborated with Ben Williams to compose the electronic music
For several dance works, including ‘Flee’ by Edwin Lung, premiered at The Place, Charing Cross, London in 1996.
Other electronic music I composed was under the name Myth Gestalt Musik.
Music Technology Magazine in the 1990’s called Myth Gestalt Musik ‘ Dark, haunting and majestic’
This could also be said about many of the images I create,
whether with paint or using digital media.
I always look behind the obvious, from a different perspective, to search for something new.
Poet and Painter Ian Claridge said ”Mike O’Neill
WIth his painting powerfully exploring the nature of the psyche in subconscious dreamscapes and expressionistic abstracts”
Prime a canvas before painting acrylics
The first answer to your question whether you must prime canvases before painting on them:
As a contemporary artist, you can do whatever you want.
Jackson Pollack included automotive paint in his arsenal.
However, artists used to be classically trained and there were accepted best practices for creating art
The good thing about the experimentation that began in the early 1900’s,
came to a head during the abstract expressionist movement,
and has been common ever since,
is the resulting creative ferment and the staggering variety of amazing art that resulted.
