Artist Credo

The artist discovers beauty and meaning in whatever environment he is cast by chance, for no matter where he is born and grows up, his life work is set for him, to glorify and describe intimately and sympathetically, the people and the physical appearance of everything around him. This does not mean that all his creations are pretty and pleasant to behold. Very often in painting, as in literature and poetry, the most beautiful paintings are those that tell the saddest story. All true artists of every age have mirrored in their work the times in which they lived. They will always do so. The contemporary scene is most conducive to great dramatic and artistic achievement. The tense atmosphere, the conflicting ideologies, arousing passion and deep emotion in the hearts of millions, electrify the artist. They challenge his artistic ability. According to his talent, his command over his medium and the mastery of his technique, he will express upon canvas in vibrant colors and exciting forms, his reaction to our tempestuously changing world.
