Welcome. I'm Fin Collins, the artist of the Film Icons Gallery. I have been painting since I was 5 years old. The first artist I loved was Tamara Lempicka. I used to ask galleries did they know her work. To me, she was the woman who painted curls like sheered chocolate, blocks of tones beautifully executed on canvas. I also like Edward Hopper and Jack Vettriano. I grew up by the sea and there were corn fields. It was a golden childhood. I love peoples faces and moments and the smell and feel of paint. Film is a passion of mine. I am very interested in the directors, actors and the crew who make movies happen. I am fascinated with the golden era of cinema and that is what THE FILM ICONS GALLERY is all about, capturing a selection of the iconic legends of cinema as I see them. I love to work, but it never feels like work because I love what I do.
Hope you enjoy the gallery!
