Angela Bond has been with Matboard and More since almost from when we opened our doors! She is an extremely talented and dedicated artist that specializes in animal prints, especially canines. Her art work is available on her Etsy Page, including her just released calendar. She accepts commission work and you can also find her at all the major art shows on the East Coast!
To create my Neo Pop Art paintings, I work free hand with very small brushes and visually break down my subject using large plains of bold color as an independent structural element. Sometimes the shapes are organic and other times more geometric. The subject dictates the flow of the painting. As my medium, I typically use acrylics on canvas, acrylic mediums and sometimes gold leaf or silver leaf is worked into an elaborate foreground or background design.
As far as my choice of canines as my most common subject, I admire dogs in part because they display what we consider to be some of the finest human traits; empathy, loyalty and resilience. I also paint various felines, horses and a bird here and there…There is probably not an animal that I do not like and always find that above all else they remind me to live in the moment and never forget how to play…A certain joie de vie is often the theme in my large paintings.
