Artist of the moment……….Kadar Brock



Kadar Brock is an American abstract artist. Kadar Brock was born in New York City in the year 1980. For his collegiate education Brock attended the Cooper Union School of Art located in New York City.

Brock’s first solo exhibition was in 2005.

In this clip we visit an exhibition of art by Kadar Brock:

Brock has been part of exhibitions in the United States, Asia, and Europe.

The artist is based out of Brooklyn, New York.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Most of the paintings of Brock are made of mixed media including oil, house paint, and spray paint.

Its very interesting that the artist was a portrait painter, who was struggling to find his voice, who then sanded his down and was able to find his own style of painting. He was an abstract painter disguised as  a portrait artist!



Artist of the moment…….Richard Lytle

Richad Lytle is a wonderful artist that mixes botanical and floral shapes with abstracted images. Richard Lytle was born in Albany, New York in the year 1935.

For his artistic education Richard Lytle attended Cooper Union located in New York City earning a bachelors degree. For his postgraduate Lytle attended Yale University where he earned a MFA.

Lytle when on to join the faculty at Yale University as a professor of drawing and color.

The artist also taught at Silvermine University. I believe this is a now defunct college that used to be located in Fairfax, Connecticut.

Lytle went back to Yale where he currently is an associate professor of art specializing in painting.

Price range information: Sorry none available. The artist works in many mediums including graphite, watercolor, charcoal, and oils.

I love the mix of floral and botanical shapes with the abstracted backgrounds. If you enjoy this type of format be sure and check out two artists already profiled here Robert Kushner and Daniel Phill.
