September Featured Artist: Bryan Bolosan

Featured Artist Bryan Bolosan

Artist Statement

Perception versus reality. These are life’s principle questions that I seek to explore and answer in my art. Capturing a fleeting thought and or inner emotion and painting them on canvas for the viewer to step-back, reflect, and find within themselves either the answers to their own questions or to stir an emotion they have yet to discover. As an artist, I work in many mediums, from watercolors to oils, but its acrylic with its bright colors and subtle hues that allows me to achieve the emotion I seek to express. Using only three to four colors at a time, I am able to alter the hues to create greater ranges of depth and dimension. The result is a quiet and impactful rhythm that ranges from a gentle heartbeat to a powerful thunderstorm. Accompany me on my journey of exploring life’s mysteries and conflicts and perhaps together we’ll find the answers all seek.

Featured Artist – Bryan Bolosan

After ingesting all the fantastic creations ( Fine Art Paintings, Handmade Fine Jewelry, Ceramics, Glass Art, Assemblage, and so much more): The LVAG is very excited to introduce you to our Featured Artist:

Bryan Bolosan. Abstract Expressionist.

Bryan is a Self Taught Artist, he uses several mediums; however, Acrylic Painting is his current medium of choice. Bryan seeks in captivating the viewer’s inner feelings about the piece the are intimate with. Planned out colors and brush strokes entrap the viewer not just into the canvas, but also into a look of the inner soul. Making that human connection with the artist’s piece.

Perception versus Reality. There are life’s principle questions that I seek to explore and answer
in my art.
