Unlock a New Dimension of Art: Create an Acrylic & Abstract Forest Landscape with Aluminum Foil!

The use of aluminum as texture in art dates back to the 1950s, when a group of American artists known as “Abstract Expressionists” began to use non-traditional materials in their artworks, including aluminum. Among these artists are Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Robert Rauschenberg, who all experimented with aluminum to create unique visual effects in their paintings. I have been applying this technique since 2012.

Welcome to this video art tutorial, where I will explore the amazing world of abstract art by creating an abstract landscape on a canvas aluminum foil texture that will amaze the eyes and stimulate the imagination.

I will guide you through every step of the creative process, applying techniques and tips that will help you achieve the desired result. You will learn how to use colors, textures, and shapes to create a unique and captivating abstract forest landscape at night.

The choice of aluminum foil as the base texture for our artwork will allow us to play with light reflections and metallic undertones, creating a striking and modern effect. This technique of using unusual materials in art is an innovative way to push the boundaries of creativity.

I’m excited to take you on this artistic journey, where you will discover new possibilities for your own artistic practice and create a breathtaking abstract landscape.

  2. Yo! I totally had no idea that aluminum foil had any uses outside of smoking opiates and making anti alien butt probe hats! Mucho love, grande respects, BIG BIG PROPS AND HUGE RECOGNITION! LOL… No but for reals though, great job. I love it… I'm a big fan of Urban exploration so I really enjoying taking pictures and videos of decaying buildings and such and you really caught my attention here because it seems you were really great at projecting a rustic, abstract state of decay here. At least that's what I perceived here. Keep up the great work buddy! You're really good at what you do…

    Guess that the crucial point.What's the back of canvas like on completion. Brown taping I suppose is called for. Good work.

  4. Wonderful/evocative colours, and shapes! So, i noticed that You didn't etch there surface of the aluminum foil … i had been told it was crucial … i trust Your process.
