Painting description

‘Ionian Blue’ is an original diptych painting by British artist Sian Storey, consisting of 2 large vibrant turtle paintings.

This unique work of art features vivid, blissful blues. Glistening gold paint catches the light on their exuberant surface. Crisp white edges finish the paintings off with a contemporary look.

Sian used acrylic and spray paint on two large square canvases, each sized at 80 x 80 x 5cm - or 160 x 80 cm in total.

Both paintings are signed by the artist on the front and reverse.

How it was created

‘Ionian Blue’ was painted in Sian Storey’s studio during late winter and spring of 2020, in Hampshire, England, using acrylics and spray paint.
