A Vancouver and Sunshine Coast based artist, LEIF KRISTIAN FREED practices his art as expressionistic abstractions.
I AM A PROCESS PAINTER.
When I see an empty canvas, I want to fill it with Colours and form. Mostly not knowing what to paint I fill the space with free flowing moves – composing, -balancing to music and rhythm.
A balance to disorganized chaos will emerge, Using the process of, -intuition, -techniques learned, -inspiration & the X-factor.
EXPLORATORY ART MAKING IS MAKING ME HAPPY
