Acrylic Use in Art

Artists often prefer the fancier sounding "Perspex" or "Lucite" brand names to describe their acrylic art materials.  Maybe this is also to avoid confusion with acrylic paint. Nevertheless, acrylic remains both a classic and contemporary material for new and established artists. Check out these great examples:
