Artist of the moment………..Charles Burwell


Charles Burwell is an African-American painter renown for his abstract style which features strong design patterns and color.

Charles Burwell was born in the year 1955. For his collegiate education Burwell earned a B.F.A. from the Tyler School of Art Temple located in Philadelphia. The artist went on to earn a M.F.A. from Yale University located in New Haven, Connecticut.

What I like most about the artist is his sense of design and layering shapes on top of each other. Some works, especially when seen in small thumbnails on a computer screen, appear to be collage works. With his wonderful sense of repeating shapes and placement Burwell is able to create a tremendous amount of depth in the picture plane.

The artist often works with acrylics and oils.
