- Many artists have a favourite medium or technique. What do you enjoy most about using your hands, brushes, and spray paint in your art?
Vernika - I don’t have a favourite medium or technique as such. Being self taught has its freedoms and its limitations as well. I knew little and that’s what I began with. It was always about what I had available at hand. If had a moment where I just
I wanted to draw something, I’d just do it with a pen. But I do work with a lot of mediums. I sketch and paint and do sculptures as well. It’s always been more about what I have to say than sticking with a particular medium.
Having said that, I am currently working mostly with oils, acrylics, and pneumatic spray guns. Though I try to cover my hands with gloves at times, it just doesn’t last long and every time I end up getting my hands involved! I think that’s the beauty of it—that sense of touch is what I like the most. A lot of artists could be working with the same mediums that I am using but it depends on the person who is involved in the process to bring uniqueness to it.
