ART FOR THE WALLS
JOE MARSHALL ART
“My oil painting style uses dozens of layers of very thin, transparent colors in between layers of clear lacquer. The finished result are paintings that capture a lot of detail and have a warm luminous glow."
An industrious soul who runs on the joy of creativity at his very core, Chuba Oyolu is formally trained as an Engineer and Scientist but is also a serious artist. He mainly works on large scale murals and original canvas paintings that are all part of an elaborately large body of work. He strives to connect his African heritage and search for excellence with his artistic exploits all while delighting the onlooker with dazzlingly bright colors and his own unique sense of individuality.
FOLLOW THE SUN
My inspiration comes from moments of connection to my surroundings - the life, the colors, the energy. I translate these moments into paintings that are true to their subjects, yet enhanced with an expression of my personality - using bright colors and flowing lines. I believe that nature has the ability to teach us many life lessons if we allow it. The oceans, rocks, and trees are symbolic, and the animals we share the world with are much like us.
MEADOW ROSE PHOTO ART
A Husband and Wife Product line: Meadow’s digital photographs & Andy’s wood work. Images printed on wood, allows for the grain to show through and enhance the style and composition of the print. A wide variety of sizes and styles.
"I believe everyone has a unique connection with the ocean, I try to translate mine into my art".
