Celebrities On Canvas

​​Alastair Bayardo has mastered a new technique of Art & Life Fusion. The pencil on canvas technique is rarely seen in the art world but combining that with his secret 8-step technique is what sets him years ahead of his contemporaries. Utilizing a vast creative arsenal, including graffiti, pencil, permanent marker, aerosol, acrylic, watercolor, resin and oil, he creates his masterpieces.


HIS WORKS

Celebrities On Canvas - his classic fine style portrait infused art.

Love Series - a new spin on C.O.C. with gorgeous backgrounds of destination places all over the world.

The Heartbreak Chronicles - a fun and colorful take on love and heartbreak with the use of watercolors.

The SpreadLoveBear Campaign - a reprint of his Spread Love Bear work of art, where he goes around Los Angeles and leaves free 10x10 wooden reprints, that are glazed and protected by a coat or resin; in his efforts to remind people that LOVE is fun and free to give one another, it just takes effort.


HIS SIGNATURE 8-STEP PROCESS

     First he finds the image or images he wants to draw and does so with pencil and marker. Once the image is completed, he begins a specific 8-step technique that allows him to paint a secondary image (usually on the entire canvas) without damaging or painting over the initial pencil rendering. His “crisp monochromatic style” coupled with his “complementary usage of color”, as displayed in the “Celebrities on Canvas” series, personifies his ability to translate his life views into his art.
 
     Alastair's passion for art is magnified when he can combine the creation with a purposes. Though a conservative, he loves to take on various viewpoints through his art.  Artistically influenced by Norman Rockwell’s style, taking something from one image and merging it with another image to create something new. Creativity, Life, fused, art. 

     His artwork has been sold in America, France, the UK and Mexico. You can see his works at the NWO art gallery or online at CelebritiesOnCanvas.com or checkout everything that the artist has going on including his acting career at AlastairBayardo.com
