What is colourist art?

Over the past 150 years, the art world has had a history of painters and art movements that have pushed forward the limits of artistic techniques and created new artistic styles. Impressionism, fauvism, symbolism, cubism, to name a few... and now "Colourist Art" has moved these boundaries even further.

 

"My Colourist Art form, at once, catches the attention as being an innovative art style due to my never-before-seen painting techniques, my use of colour where I will exaggerate or use an unexpected colour rather than what mother earth wants me to see or my unique employment of light diffusion to create exceptional depth and dimension." ...Trebor

"My distinctive art is like any other and it truly stands out by itself in the contemporary art world. Being its originator and considered as an experimental artist, I continuously strive to develop newer techniques to diffuse light off a painting’s surface and to use vibrant colours as my primary purposes thus moving the boundaries of my art form even further." ...Trebor

“...Trebor’s artworks are about as stylish as art can get where this innovative artist uses out-of-the-box painting techniques and ...how he moves light around in absolutely stunning ways making his paintings totally fashionable to own. To date I have purchased over a dozen paintings, and I will be buying more in the coming months."

Colourist Art Explained

"My art style is a combination of new techniques that I have developed over the past years. All my paintings begin with a sketch of the subject matter and the application of a seam of acrylic paint over the drawing. Once dried, I apply my liquified oil and solvent mixed paints to produce a more malleable medium which allows me to manage it in new and exciting ways on canvas or wood frames. This use of liquified oil-based paints, combined with store bought additives, plus my unique application methods are now recognized as the dominant features of my colourist art style that now defines my artwork.

 

As an example of these application methods, I have developed a process that causes the visible brush strokes to recess below the surface. As the paint dries, it allows a transparent layer of lighter high gloss paint additive to naturally rise and harden producing a flat brilliant surface with all the brush strokes still visible below the surface with no apparent texture when touch. The resultant effect is a luminous thin layer of varying colours that reflects all the paint’s intensity towards the observer’s eyes. In summary, the combination of all my innovative techniques has allowed me to create an original art style that is different, vibrant, and alive with colors and bursting with appeal for buyers and emotions for viewers.

Colourist Declaration

Before you ask yourself the question, the answer is… "YES... I have a sixth sense for colour!”

"...I have a thing about lighting-up assorted colours to enhance or distort them. I enjoy discovering them... over and over again, to understand them, dissect them and intensify them. I like how colour reveal’s my passion or indifference, my awareness or unawareness, the perfect or the not-so-perfect in myself, the natural or the hypocritical."

 

My colorist paintings are always a journey... trials, errors, construction, reconstructions of style and a resurgence of my emotions on canvas. In essence... I go all-out to create art that will have a momentous impact internally and externally on the viewer and draw their attention to my unprecedented ways of treating colour and light diffusion.”
