We attended one of Alex Inchbald's exhibitions earlier this year and were immediately captivated by his paintings. Alex had put together a montage of timelapse videos showing the evolutions of his paintings that he had shot himself whilst painting; we thought this was a really cool idea!
When we asked Alex about his paintings he told us "a painting is more than a product, it is a vehicle through which we can experience another moment in time. These moments can last seconds, minutes, hours or days. The feelings associated with them can last a lifetime." Listening to people who are passionate about what they do is always fascinating for us and we are lucky that we continuously meet passionate people each day who inspire us.
We discussed where he found the inspiration for his art and thought that showing the creation of one of his paintings would make for a great film. A few weeks ago we had the chance to film Alex creating one of his beautiful paintings in the mountains of Chamonix, France.
Watching the painting come to life from a blank canvas to a work of art over a period of four and a half hours in front of our eyes was an incredible experience. Alex's paintings have been likened to the works of Van Gogh and after our day in the mountains, we can tell you first hand that he is an incredibly talented artist that we believe you will be hearing more of in the future.
Oh, and if you are wondering about the shirt Alex wears in the video, it is by our friends at Staunton Moods!
Here is the short film we made when Alex painted "Aim High" in Chamonix:
