Scouring Twitter and Pinterest for art has led me to a whole host of UK artists who feature varying levels of abstraction and whose work often draws inspiration from coastal landscapes. Many live and work in Cornwall, which led me to learn a bit about the St. Ives school of art – a group of artists exploring the abstract and then avant-garde over the past almost 100 years. Neil Canning is another Cornwall artist carrying on this tradition. I love the use of hyper-bright colors and bold non-figurative shapes that still conjure up images of the seaside.

Lots of write-ups of this artist along with more commentary on the St. Ives school on his website.
