About Layin’ it on Thick, Leo Bugel –
Layin’ it on Thick marks Leo Bugel’s first solo show since his graduation from The Academy of Art University in 2011, though his accomplishments didn’t stop there – featured in Southwest Magazine’s 21 Under 31 as well as Art Collector Magazine Leo has clearly gained some noticeable headlines. It’s no surprise though –with his unique sense of paint application with huge, broad strokes of a palette knife loaded with irresistible saturated colors combined with the geometric cityscapes that are both very California but yet so mystic that they could be anywhere. His pieces are beautiful in that they seem absorbed with light – you can close your eyes and pretend to feel the heat emanating from his 2-Dimensional sun; His choice of warm colors directly influenced, and emphasized, by the spot on values found in the huge and simple shapes dominating in his compositions.
Leo Bugel has also agreed to host a lecture, open to the public, during his stay in Oslo. The artist will be present at the opening reception February 28th, 2014 from 18:00 -21:00, for all questions and inquiries about him, his process, and his work.
