Artist Statement...kevin e collander

“creativity is my joy and watercolors are my love.”
 

As a fine artist, i use watercolor and mixed media to explore traditional avenues and fresh, evocative expressions. My signature style includes atmospheric landscapes, urban streetscapes, landmark homes and architectural treasures, best recognized in my growing collection of vibrant nightscapes. My explorations grow . Distinctive two and three-dimensional expressions of the musical score and traditional books are exhibited in my collections entitled artistically notated notations, Symphonic... and Seeing Wood.... My emotionally rich artworks, A Bookish Quilt... and A Picture of Dorian Gray are prime examples of this fresh use of watercolor, ink and text.
 

i marry my artistic talents with an architectural degree from The Ohio State University and my profession as a retail/interior designer. My creativity is diverse and unending. i enjoy illustrating and creative/screenplay writing. Participation as a contributing artist to select charitable organizations such as EquitasHealth Art for Life and camp sunrise, Ohio Cancer Research A Capital Valentine, The Arts Castle Arts Affair and Hospice of Morrow County Hearts for Hospice has added special meaning to my art.


i am active in the central Ohio arts community with board/membership in the German Village Art League, Columbus CAC Gallery shows, GCAC Community Art Partnership Award competitions and OAC INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE AWARD competitions. i am a proud alumnus/participant in the Grand Rapids, MI, ARTPRIZE and Grand Haven, MI, ArtWalk. My proudest achievements to date are my inclusion in ARTBOX/PROJECTS, ART UpCLOSE/ARTIFACT Gallery and a finalist in The Global Art Award 2017, the Armani Hotel Dubai, Burj Khalifa, UAE. My goal is to bring my artistic creations to a wider, appreciative audience and market. 

   

enjoy ...
