Artist uses a power drill to make abstract paintings
The artist Johnny Q from Johnny Q Art creates abstract paintings with an unconventional tool: his drill. He usually combines dark colors with more vivid colors and some Supreme logos to create images that feel like street art that you can hang up in your home.
"Mixing art and business," he wrote on Instagram on June 5. “What started as a hobby has developed into a booming business in the past 2 1/2 months. Honestly, so thankful and humble about this opportunity. "
The artist has recently garnered over 131,000 followers on TikTok, probably because it's really fun to see his technique.
In a video, Johnny covers a white canvas with blue, white, and yellow paint. He fastens the back of the painting to a drill. When Johnny drives the drill, he turns the canvas, making the paint splash organic and covering the entire square. He compared the abstract picture to a blue Patrick Star from "SpongeBob SquarePants".
"I love this damn it!" A TikTok user wrote.
"That looked good," added another person.
"Hey, these are my school colors," someone wrote.
Johnny started painting during the quarantine, but all the attention and customers were a pleasant surprise.
"What started as a way to be creative during quarantine, I managed to turn it into a small business," he wrote on Instagram last May. “Almost $ 5,000 in sales in just over two weeks. Oh, and it won't slow down. If you're tired of talking about TikTok, you know that you can still turn your brand or business into something powerful through social media. "
