Bryan Saunders breathes new life into experimental art. Some 50 paintings soon to be on display alongside Damien Hirst’s were drug-fuelled creations that have won him legions of admirers.
His creative process is straight out of leftfield: “That’s lighter fluid,” he told the Guardian, which recently published a long and brilliant piece on Saunders. “I used metallic crayons to give it that lighter fluid feeling. That’s computer duster. If you don’t do it right, it can freeze and shatter your teeth. That’s crystal meth. That painting’s probably the seventh or eighth on the same piece of paper, because I kept doing it over and over again. I couldn’t stop.”
