Before EAT LOVE SAVOR magazine was conceived, its founder, editor in chief, publisher, luxury curator and creative director Angela Tunner was a fine artist. Her medium of choice, acrylics on canvas. Her style, abstract expressionism. From the mid 1970s off and on through to the early 2000s she produced and exhibited, engaged with an artist lobby group and even did a public art project. She ceased painting in favor of creative pursuits in her passion for media with a last collection in 2003 and a final exhibition in New York at the Agora Gallery. She left the art world to start pursuing creative expression through publishing, creating a luxury magazine brand and independent publishing enterprise. A precious few pieces remain from her last collection.
Angela Tunner (b 1967, Canada), artist, is known for immersive, bold colored paintings. Her expressive paintings draw you into an intimate space between the brush strokes, where each stroke is a moment to pause and be embraced by the gestures of the paint. Inspired by the beauty of fluid movement, water and other natural elements, each is a personal conversation with the emotion that gave birth to each piece of art. Her artistic influences span the ages from Renaissance, Masters, Modern… artists including Rembrandt, Chagall, Jackson Pollock and many more. Her emotional muse is nature itself and man’s connection with the world around us and all the quiet beauty it holds.
