Rajan Seth is a London abstract artist known for his atmospheric metallic abstracts.
His unconventional style of ‘painting without a paintbrush’, using tools such as palette knives and paint scrapers allow him to build layers, texture and contrast into each of his pieces. Combining this with his passion for incorporating metallic colours into his work and his use of mixed media has enabled him to develop a unique approach which has become notable for its soft yet compelling structure.
Rajan enjoys creating unique abstract art for home and office interiors. As well as producing new paintings to add to his collection, he works on large custom paintings and commissions for both private and commercial clients both in the UK and overseas.
“There is something intriguing about the way metallic colours reflect off a canvas from different angles. This adds new dimensions not only to the piece, but also to the interior space in which the piece is hung and is something I incorporate in almost all of the works. My inspiration is drawn from my surrounding environment. Painting is about feeling, and I want people to draw different conclusions when they see my work."
Rajan works directly with his clients as well as interior designers. He has most recently completed commissions for Made in Chelsea’s Hugo Taylor, English TV & Radio presenter Fearne Cotton, England Footballer Nick Pope, and Masterchef 2019 finalist Chef Exose.
about the abstract art work
Creating abstract paintings through the process of continuous layering of paint forms the basis of all of Rajan's work. The application and manipulation of paint over time creates depth and texture from which his metallic contrasts are formed.
The fundamentals in each piece are designed using a variety of unconventional tools that are both handmade and improvised with finishing touches added with Rajan's signature mark-making techniques
All of Rajan's work are hand-made originals, and one of a kind, created in his London studio using hand stretched cotton canvas on wooden frames. Framing is available (and optional) on all pieces.
Each painting takes between two weeks to a month depending on the inspiration, idea and work load.
