Our artists have created a series of downloadable coloring pages to bring some creativity to your day. Join us as we ‘ARTatHome’ together by coloring-in specially created line drawings by artists Mark Bradford, Nicolas Party, Anj Smith, Rashid Johnson, Luchita Hurtado and Zhang Enli. ARTatHome can be enjoyed together with your children and is suitable for all ages.
Mark Bradford is best known for his large-scale, abstract paintings that explore social-political themes. His works are often created by layering materials and media from popular culture, such as merchant posters, newsprint, comic strips, magazines, billboards and endpapers.
Nicolas Party is a figurative painter who creates familiar yet unsettling landscapes, portraits, and still lifes. His unique visual language has created a universe of fantastical characters and motifs.
Matthew Day Jackson works in sculpture, painting, collage, photography, drawing, video, performance and installation. His art grapples with big ideas such as the evolution of human thought and how we understand our natural world. He often uses familiar imagery, such as mankind’s first steps on the moon.
Anj Smith’s intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity and fragility. Her remarkably detailed works often feature wildly feral landscapes, ambiguous figures, textiles, and rare and exotic flora and fauna.
Rashid Johnson works in a wide range of media – including sculpture, painting, drawing, filmmaking, and installation. His practice explores themes such as art history, literature, and individual and shared identities.
Zhang Enli regularly works with everyday objects that he is drawn to, for example a piece of string, a hose, or even a marble ball from the floor of his studio. His paintings often employ expressive lines and curves influenced by traditional Chinese brush painting.
Luchita Hurtado has dedicated her painting and drawing practice to themes such as the interconnectedness of the natural world, the cosmos and the environment. She often uses brightly hued colored palettes to draw inspiration from the landscapes and tropical flora of her native Venezuela.
Takesada Matsutani is a Japanese painter, printmaker, and installation artist best known for his techniques such as blowing air into vinyl glue to produce bulbous ridges and forms in the surfaces of his works. Here, Matsutani offers simple face drawings as a jumping off point for further exploration. Let your individual creativity run wild!
