British artist Jason Anderson puts his own spin on abstract painting. His unique use of pixelated oil paint results in stunning artwork with layers of tiny shapes and vivid colors. Up close, the paintings look blocky and abstract; however, from a distance, it’s easy to make out Anderson’s bewitching maritime scenes featuring cityscapes, roads, trains, and marinas.
Anderson got his start as a stained glass apprentice at restorers of cathedrals. He worked on broken pieces and eventually began designing glass murals—where he first discovered the knack for splitting complex images into colorful “jigsaw” pieces. Nowadays, this same technique is used in Anderson’s current works to create mesmerizing large-scale compositions that make an impact on any wall!
