Oil-Injected Gel Makes Incredible 3D Paintings

“It's like being able to paint with brush strokes in midair, or an analog 3D printing,” says artist Arron Kuiper.

Welsh artist and Cardiff School graduate Arron Kuiper has created his own innovative style of 3D painting he's coined Gel Paintings.Using syringes, Kuiper injects oil paint into a water-based transparent gel held within a clear recycled container, like a fish bowl or jam jar. “It's like being able to paint with brush strokes in midair, or an analog 3D printing,” the artist tells The Creators Project. Kuiper's 3D technique gives tangibility and texture to a range of scenes, from eerie bust-like portraits to surreal snapshots from his childhood. “It is easy to wave a syringe around trailing color to make abstract works," he adds. "For me the challenge and satisfaction lies in being figurative, in creating worlds.”
