Artist of the moment……..Bill Jensen

Bill Jensen is an abstract painter known for his use of spirals, circles, and bold colour. Bill Jensen was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the year 1945. For his artistic education Jensen attended the University of Minnesota earning a bachelors and masters degree in art.

Winner of an Endowment from the National Gallery of Art.

Currently based out of New York City.

Jensen also enjoys having fun with the surface of his paintings. Many times he paints, scrapes, and repaints again giving his work a very unique feeling of movement. Some works remind of the Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

Brew a cup of coffee and sit back as our fellow art loving friend James Kalm takes us on a gallery show in Chelsea for an exhibition by Bill Jensen.

Jensen’s work is best shown in the video as you can see the light moving across the picture plane. The artist uses expensive pigments with colors most artists don’t use.

A fan of the New York Abstract Expressionist School.

price range information: Most works range from $2,000 to $10,000.
