Two Pints.

This black and white painting is part of a series of nostalgic urban scenes. The friendly milk man has all but disappeared these days but I,m sure many people can remember putting empties out for their early morning milk delivery.

Kenneth Clarke

I am a self taught artist from Tyneside England. I first started with art making small clay sculptures to relax from a busy lifestyle competing in sport and running a successful gym. After winning the British Championships and a Mr Universe tittle in by 2007 I decided to retire to a slower pace of life. My interest in art helped to fill the void I felt after leaving the sport of bodybuilding. So I focused intensely on developing my own unique style. Often my artworks feature figurative  and abstract elements combined with a fantasy theme.Recently I have been creating some new sculptures and  geometric abstract painting as well as some acrylic impasto technique. A lot of energy goes into my art and  it shows in the finished paintings. A sense of drama and intensity comes to mind when looking at my larger images. My other drawings are soft gentle and erotic to celebrate the beauty of the female form. I paint with bright vibrant colours and my imagination create images that draw the viewer to take a closer look. Art is my release from daily life. Art gives me the opportunity to express my feelings from past or present. I have been an artist all my life really. I spent twenty years sculpting my own body into a herculean physique. My background in bodybuilding influencing my interest in figurative art. Music is a great motivation and influence too. Music is a great inspiration to lots of things including my art. Some of my paintings feature a musical theme like a ballerina or musical notes. Recently I have created a new style of painting featuring fluid texture with impasto underpainting and seamless glowing abstract figures. As far as I know this style is unique to my work. Another series of kaleidoscopic, geometric abstract paintings is growing and developing. After some recent holidays I have been inspired to expand a series of dramatic sunset images that are bright and  colourfull with a charming naive quality. It took a lot of courage for me to go from the strength and power of bodybuilding to the softer, gentle world of art. Strength and energy I now freely express in my art instead of the gym. Art has brought out a confidence in me that I never had with large muscles. People now see me as a man with feelings and emotions that I express in my artwork. Now I am Kenneth Clarke the artist that used to be a bodybuilder. I am happier now holding a pencil or brush now as opposed to bars or dumbbells. Thankyou for taking the time to read my profile.   Kenneth Clarke.
