Maxwell Alexander Gallery

Maxwell Alexander Gallery is introducing a new breed of Art Gallery to the Los Angeles area. The gallery is based on curated shows rather than representing a long roster of artists.
This is a small wave painting I started a few days before the opening of "Sea Change". Unfortunately, the piece didn't make it into the show because of the short amount of time, regardless whenever possible I like to finish up what I start and this one I thoroughly enjoyed working on to the finish.
I am honored to be included in the American Artist 75 Greatest Artists Of All Time. I am humbled to be featured amongst talented artists David Kassan, Jeremy Lipking, Casey Braugh, Brad Kunkle, Sean Cheetham, Burton Silverman, Antonio Lopez, Richard Schmid, Jacob Collins, Lucian Freud, Rembrandt van Rijn,Caravaggio, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Georgia O'Keefe, Frida Kahlo, and many more.
Thank you American Artist Magazine and everyone for your support!

Board Art Benefit

I am very excited to participate in the Board Art Benefit Show since it involves helping people, painting and surfing. When I was asked which shaper I would like to partner up with, Danny Hess Hesssurfboards.com, immediately came to mind. The surfboards he crafts are absolutely beautiful, I think it is very profound that all the materials are environmentally friendly as well.

Joshua Liner Gallery
548 West 28th Street, 3rd floor,
New York, NY 10001
Joshua Liner Gallery is presenting Resolve, an exhibition of 25 emerging and established artists whose work is rooted in classical art traditions and training. In rendering the figure, still life, or landscape subject, this group (22 painters, two sculptors, and one photographer) expresses a collective interest in classical art forms with a variety of distinct and decidedly contemporary voices. Resolve is organized by gallery artist Tony Curanaj and features -
“This exhibition of colleagues and influences reflects a relatively narrow but varied slice of the art world, and presents it to an audience that may not be exposed to this segment of contemporary art practice. The title Resolve speaks of their determination and progression, qualities that imbue each of these works with beauty and technical virtuosity. From concept to execution, these contemporary masters of their craft are completely engaged in the artist’s process and an artistic direction that is unwavering, regardless of fashion or trend.”
- Tony Curanaj, Curator/Artist.
