About the Book
Era of Gold shows some of the art collection of British artist Colin Buckingham. The book gives an insight into the meanings of some of Colin's paintings. The book is full of colour and explores how Colin got into art, and why he paints the things he does.
I have lived in London my entire life. I started painting when I was recovering from a serious knee injury, which occurred playing rugby. My paintings try to capture an emotional state in my life, as well as interpretations of other people’s thoughts, feelings and important and monumental events. For me art is a release, and a way to express myself creatively. Painting also gives me great joy when helping others captivate magical moments such as love, a birth of a child, achievement or overcoming challenging times. I enjoy using vibrant colours to bring stories to life.
