Today we feature the art portfolio of painter David Tycho. His sweeping brush strokes foster energetic marks of colour and offer the sensation of movement. Colours contrast nicely in these pieces from David's series called "Japan Series". There is a delightful calmness to these "portraits" of Fuji.
"David Tycho was born in Vancouver in 1959. He studied painting under renowned artist Gordon Smith at the University of British Columbia, where in 1983 David received a degree in visual arts education. After working through a number of Modernist styles, he arrived at his personal interpretation of figurative expressionism, which remained his focus until moving to Asia in 1984.
In Japan, David was particularly intrigued by the calligraphy of Zen monks, whose fluid, gestural brushwork often rendered the characters illegible, and ultimately abstract. At the same time, he was also inspired by the paintings of Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Willem deKooning, and David soon began to explore abstraction for himself." - www.tychoart.com
