Mixed media art is nothing new, but the Light & Leaf painting series mixes two unique materials: oil paint and metals. Specifically genuine silver and gold leaf, which are used as both symbolic elements and visual instruments. The result is something truly spectacular and not a bit surreal. The Light & Leaf series really captures the essence and warmth of autumn, even if that is not its true purpose.

Created by artist Brad Kunkle, who was born in Lehighton, Pennsylvania and now resides in New York City, the Light & Leaf shoot has a different perspective depending on where the viewer is standing due to the use of such metals. The reflective shine changes to create a different interactive experience, subtle though it is. Stats for Gold-Flecked Paintings Trending: Older & Mild
