Ever since painting had become an integral part of his life, Natan began developing his unique painting technique. He mixes different kinds of plastic materials such silicon and acrylic in various quantities, and sprinkle them on the canvas. Thus creating a 3-D texture to his work. Sometimes, he adds Swarovski elements and a selection of glitters for the finishing touch. Natan’s technique is 100% hand made with no machinery involved.
