About / CV

My work is inspired by the individuality of all physical things and energies found in the natural world. Regardless of their differences, everything has the ability to exist harmoniously; plants, animals, rock formations, stars, gases, and all there is.
When painting abstracts I attempt to mimic those inconsistent laws of perfection. 

Short bio:
Arthur Brouthers is well known in the world of social media as a pioneer of an abstract fluid painting technique that achieves “fluid like cells”, with the use of acrylic paints and other chemical agents. In his figurative works, these unconventional methods are used as bottom layers or the “skins” of his subjects. Arthur uses anywhere from 4 to 15 layers of clear resin between layers of acrylic paint, pigmented inks, and spray paint to show depth, giving a 3D effect.


"Arthur Brouthers, a Charlotte, N.C.-based artist, experimented for years with acrylic paint and other mediums before arriving at his current process, which produces wild textures that mimic celestial bodies and microscopic processes. In the artist’s figurative work, the human body takes on otherworldly form when it consists of this material.”    -Andy Smith of Hi-Fructose Magazine
