Phillip A. Saunders, a young self-taught artist from Toronto Canada enjoys studying and incorporating the knowledge of ancient human history, psychology, and philosophy into his work. His creative work is the expression of being human, with a spiritual nature, surrealistic, impressionistic, and dream-like all of which are pointers to the real realm of our spiritual nature. Phillip enjoys using acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal, watercolor, oil paint, and aerosol in his illustrations.
“The work I create as an artist is the expression of being human. My work is of a spiritual nature, surrealistic, impressionistic, and dream-like. The paintings act as pointers to the real realm of our spiritual nature. I enjoy using acrylic paint, graphite, charcoal, watercolor, oil paint, and aerosol.“
His paintings embody mixing human and animal attributes, usually conveying a psychological, spiritual, and surrealistic overtone. Phillip also enjoys studying color theory and spiritual sciences of the mind. Throughout his he uses symbols and colors to provoke emotion and inspire curiosity of the inner journey. His artwork communicates directly to the unconscious and conscious mind of the viewer.
Considered a surrealist painter, Phillip’s influence on street art, psychedelic depictions and primary usage of negative space, has all together influenced his work to exude strong hypnagogic visual elements. “When I was little I always loved looking at the clouds looking into them trying to see if I could find something cool, my work today reflects that because I love using the negative space to create new things.”
“Love is life. Knowledge of creation is my journey. I consider myself to be an artist, visionary, free thinker, researcher, and astrologer” Phillip Saunders
