Artist Name: Vella, Dean
"Colour is light, light is energy, energy is life," says Vella. Dean Vella began his journey as a professional artist in his hometown of Broken Hill in Australia's desert outback. He currently resides in North Queensland. Dean's unique technique involves using a thick bodied acrylic to create a layered painting rich in both color and texture. His use of primary colors and basic shapes propel us into childhood and the sleek wetness of his paints entices both our senses of touch and taste. Dean's art is not a realistic representation, but an intense visual experience.
