Urban Cracks - Abstract Photography

Urban Abstract - Sam Freek

Found this urban abstract whilst out and about taking photographs. I'm always on the look out for abstract photographs and I appreciate the weathered cracks and the peeling paint that this photograph has to offer. 

Everything and Nothing - Contemporary Wall Art

Everything and Nothing - Contemporary Wall Art

Everything and Nothing by Sam Freek

I closed the door on using colour in this art work as I wanted to expose the subject in a pure and raw form. Choosing grey and white to lessen the detail around the random and yet significant aspects of the artwork has crudely highlighted the other areas in a genuine expressive manner.
I find this art work to come across as a truthful, modest art piece that could be seen as cosmetically unappealing through its lack of colour and disparate composition but this is outweighed by being thought provoking and in that it provides us with a mirror to our soul by showing you your true character when presented with something that doesn't rely solely on its superficial appearance.

This limited edition canvas art print is available as a landscape, square or triptych in various sizes and can be delivered worldwide. If you have any questions regarding this canvas art or any other art work on my web site then please don't hesitate to contact me (Sam Freek).

Inactive - Contemporary Art for the Modern Home

Inactive - Contemporary Wall Art

Inactive by Sam Freek
Yet again I find myself revelling in the bricks and mortar of the industrious landscape of which I seem to have a great affinity with. The letters GB appear faintly amid this art work and signify the words "Great Britain" and have an active part in bringing to life the warm earthy colours that fill this canvas print. Although at first glance these colours appear muted and prosaic I find that the longer I stare at the piece the more I become immersed within these delightful rich tones which radiate a soothing glow bringing about a comfortable calmness. The bricks unify the art work and signify an industrious strength and yet at the same time they bring about a serene harmony to the piece by working in unison to create a beautiful and inspiring piece of art.

The large, square canvas print is available in various sizes and can be shipped worldwide. If you have any questions regarding this wall art or any other canvas print on my web site please feel free to contact me (Sam Freek).

Urban Alien Face - Sam Freek

Finding a face in some random urban surface is like finding a pot of gold to me (well maybe a lucky penny), it makes my day anyway and then I feel happy. Here is an urban photograph of an alien face or a character from a Tim Burton movie.

Can't Stop Wont Stop by Sam Freek
Panoramic canvas prints look wonderful above a sofa or a bed or even a long sleek sideboard. I have a panoramic canvas art print hung up vertically on a narrow wall which looks marvelous. This limited edition abstract canvas print has an engaging attraction that originates from the interfusion of the peacock tones of blue and green against the irrational and bold jagged lines of the silver.  This art piece makes a bold, mesmerising statement without being too overwhelming and captivates the eye whilst holding you in a contemplative gaze. 

This panoramic canvas print is available in various sizes and can be shipped worldwide. If you have any questions regarding this art piece, photography or wall art on the web site please feel free to contact me (Sam Freek) and I will answer your questions.

I was going to convert this photo to black and white but I like the blue tint the metal throws off. Removing letters to create other words is something I usually do to the menu board at a pub.

The Only Way To Go - Wall Art For The Contemporary Home

The Only Way To Go - Contemporary Wall Art 

The Only Way To Go by Sam Freek
Black, white, red, grey and blue/black make up this modernistic expressive urban abstract. The grey and white overlay the black in a haphazard manner which adds texture and a disorderly appearance to the artwork. A graphic looking red arrow has been placed onto the artwork which beckons you to the piece as if to summon you into its disregard for orderliness. A stylish,  unequivocal piece of contemporary art with an arbitrary twist.  This canvas art print is available as a large landscape in various sizes. If you have any questions regarding this wall art or any other art piece on my web site, please contact me (Sam Freek).

Always looking around when I go out and about taking photographs and decided to look up and caught this nice abstract arrangement of an urban building with a street light against the swirling blue sky.

Padded Cell - Mental Asylum Photography

Padded Cell Door - Sam Freek
Made a visit to a mental asylum museum and had a quick look inside a previously used padded cell, if the floor had of been a trampoline it would have been a fun place to bounce up and down and off the walls to for a while, especially with some great music playing.

Rising To The Top - Abstract Wall Art

Rising To The Top - Contemporary Abstract Wall Art

Rising To The Top by Sam Freek
An original, urban abstract art piece with various shades of blue forming the substance of this expressive artwork. The distribution of the irregular white and black markings draws your eyes in and around in a rhythmic manner luring you deeper into the artwork. As a consequence of these marks and what would otherwise have been a soothing blue abstract, they can be seen as bringing a dynamic balance of which fuses the overall content of the artwork, thus creating a truly captivating piece of abstract art.

This abstract canvas print is available to buy as a large landscape, square or triptych in various sizes. All my art or photography is available to buy online and can be shipped anywhere in the world. If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact me (Sam Freek).

Made a Move - Contemporary Abstract Wall Art

Made a Move by Sam Freek

Made a Move - Contemporary Abstract Art
Here we have a red, black, white and blue abstract canvas art print which is a simple and unobtrusive piece of artwork. Now onto describing the piece of abstract art work. How do I portray the reasons for taking this abstract photograph and what does it mean to me? 

Does it provoke a feeling or is it a preference to taking abstract formations in my favourable colours? I do know that I have an affinity and relish in taking photographs in areas that were once the heart of the industrial working class community and although these are now seen as unappealing areas that are in a state of decline I try and find an obscure way of showing its unadorned beauty. 

So on closer inspection I find myself contemplating that this is an abstract representation of the hidden charm of what once was the hub of the industrial working class society and thus brings out the alluring feelings I have towards restoring its existence into an eye catching piece of contemporary art. 

Available as a landscape in various sizes, this abstract canvas art print can be shipped anywhere in the world. If you have any questions on my art or photography please feel free to contact me (Sam Freek).

Going Steady - Black and White Art

Going Steady - Black and White Wall Art

Going Steady by Sam Freek
I am always tempted to add a bit of colour to black and white art as my first impressions are that it lacks luster but with this artwork I found myself sidestepping the colour palette and seeing past that misconception. The overlapping heavy defacement that covers this artwork has many layers created by the youth of today that wish to establish acknowledgement from society,so rather than mask these proclamations with colour I left the rawness to shine through and create a simple yet compelling piece of art.

'Going Steady' canvas art print is available to buy online as a large landscape, square or triptych in various sizes and can be shipped worldwide. If you have any questions regarding this artwork or the photography on my website then please feel free to contact me (Sam Freek).

High Standards - Wall Art for the Contemporary Home

High Standards by Sam Freek

High Standards - Wall Art 
I love the vigor of the various shades of brown rust in this canvas art print which conforms into the artwork by the presence of the irregular grey markings. These grey impressions seem to suggest they want to communicate in an urgent erratic manner and dominate the artwork leaving disparity of the cream to neutalise the overall feel and thus helping to accumulate the artwork into a wondrous spectacle.

This wall art is available in various sizes as a landscape, square or triptych canvas print and can be delivered worldwide. For more information or if you have any questions regarding my art  or photography please contact me (Sam Freek). 

Gas Mask

Gas Mask
The gask mask which was once associated with World War II is now seen as an accessory for futuristic illustrated super heroes and models alike. I wanted to create a creepy, vintage looking image using the gas mask and this black and white photograph is what I came up with.

We Are All For Sale - Contemporary Art

For Sale - Contemporary Art
We are all for sale and can be bought is the message of this artwork. I used to think I couldn't be bought but bring me a pork pie from my local butchers shop and you can slam down the auctioneers hammer as I'm sold. 

Time For Action - Panoramic Abstract Wall Art

Time For Action - Contemporary Wall Art

Time For Action by Sam Freek
This large blue abstract panoramic wall art print almost looks 3D as the cracked paint appears to 'pop' out from the canvas. The irregularity of the crackling of paint opposed to the worn bare wood brings together the artwork as a whole and you cannot help but gaze at this compelling piece of art. This canvas art print is available in various sizes and can be shipped worldwide. For more information or if you have any queries please contact me (Sam Freek).

Dear Uncle Reg

Dear Uncle Reg

Found these postcards and just loved reading the back and looking at the old photo on the front. I like receiving postcards and I don't see many people sending them any more. Holiday makers are keeping in touch with people back home over the internet now it seems to be something that is in decline.

Listening to the Noise by Sam Freek 
Listening to the Noise by Sam Freek
Random, random and even more random markings and scratches are what I love about this artwork that is available to buy as an abstract canvas art print.

A Moments Peace

A Moments Peace

After a steep climb up a hill in the heat he needed a rest, so he sat in the shade away from the stream of tourists. I caught him deep in thought and wanted to know what was on his mind? A moments peace is all he wanted.

A Strong Desire - Abstract Canvas Art

A Strong Desire by Sam Freek
Simplistic is something I love and although sometimes I feel there should be more detail in a photo or piece of artwork I have to tell myself to walk away from it and leave it as it is. Adding more to some artwork can sometimes ruin it so I usually go with my gut instinct and stop. This was one of them photos where I thought it could have more but felt the uncomplicated feel of the photo was what drew me to take the photo in the first place. Strong shades of blue with black, white, brown and reds make up this large abstract wall art and it can be bought in various sizes and shipped anywhere in the world. For more information feel free to contact me (Sam Freek).

A Colourful Planet - Contemporary Photography

A Colourful Planet

I could sit and watch for hours on how colours move and flow into one another, I get the same relaxing feeling when I sit and watch fish swimming around in a tank. After I had taken this photo it reminded me of a petri dish from a science lab or the surface of a planet, going for the latter got me thinking about space and how amazing it would be to have my very own observatory.

Urban Scream - Photography

Urban Scream

Took this photo whilst out and about walking into town. I was tempted to go back and put some ping pong balls in the eyes to make it stand out more. It makes my day if I find a face in a wall or some cracked distressed paint.

On The Road To Somewhere - Canvas Art Print

On The Road To Somewhere by Sam Freek

On The Road To Somewhere - Canvas Art Print

I was heading home driving out of the city centre and I spotted this urban abstract that I thought would look amazing on a canvas print, so I pulled the car up and took some photos and this is the end result. The cool blue triggers off a calming feeling for me whenever I gaze at art created from it and this canvas art print is no exception. Available in various sizes and as a triptych, square or landscape this would create a truly intangible abstract work of art. View the wall art on the web site or for more information you can contact me, Sam Freek.

As I lay in bed on a night with thoughts of new ideas whirling around my head I wish I could have an on/off switch attached to my brain so I could just shut it down for the night.But who would then turn it back on in the morning? :-O

Woke up to a nightmare of a hair do. I could be mistaken for a walking tumbleweed today! If only I could wake up like they do in the movies with pristine hair and make up. Maybe I should invest in a lot of different wigs.
