We are turning to Purism as self-therapy. The influences of creative design for this trend come from our inner selves, skin colours, soft monochromatic hues, organic sculptural shapes, super lightweight aesthetics, stretching/elasticising forms, transparencies, layering of materials lots of layers. The innovation-minded are seeking the pure quality of the naked, decoration-free form and a desire for truth, purity and authenticity. A return to values such as restraint, sense of proportions, humility and modesty are now part of our design agenda. It is about detoxifying form and exposing its inherent qualities. A recurring theme of soft, blurring effects in photography perhaps a mist, a cloud, layers of transparency.

Often imitated although never duplicated, Farmboy Fine Arts has been a pioneer in the field of acrylic digital art.
