"I love working with chalk pencils because you can mix the colors with a high degree of sophistication. The effect of these pencils seems to evoke a beautiful vintage quality"

Aaron Kasmin is a British contemporary artist, born in 1963 and based in London. He studied at the Chelsea School of Art in London and has exhibited in London, Paris and New York.

Working in various mediums, including watercolour, pencil and oil paint, his preferred method is chalk pencils: "you can mix colours together endlessly and they can be used very finely for detail. With paint it would be far too fussy, drawing is a much more immediate medium" says Aaron.

The works are often images of great formal elegance: spare, hard-won, small in scale but full of quiet power. Aaron works with coloured pencil on paper. His favoured motifs are everyday objects. He makes us see them anew. In his artworks he tries to convey the pleasure and beauty of looking. He composes small images which play with scale, balance, space, colour and harmony. The mood and character of each work is determined by the imperfections of the human eye recreating and interpreting exactly what is in front of it.

“What I am trying to convey in my work is the pleasure and beauty of looking. I compose small images which play with scale, balance, space, colour and harmony. I enjoy the idiosyncrasies of the freely drawn line. The mood and character of each work is determined by the imperfections of the human eye recreating and interpreting exactly what is in front of it.”
