Kevin Weckbach

Denver born Kevin Weckbach had studied at the Art Students League of Denver for the last decade, and is represented in galleries from Wellfleet, Massachusetts to Texas. Kevin balances his career as a painter with illustration. A graduate of Rocky Mountain College of Art with a degree in illustration, Weckbach recently illustrated a new edition of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights for Micawber Fine Editions, in Boulder.

Kevin Weckbach's fluid, poetic, abstract work is a pure expression of the artist himself. Tall and paint dabbed, Weckbach is a man indulged in his field. As a young man he is gaining the attention and respect of the art world.

His work is very sophisticated in the intellectual structure, the brush work and how Weckbach leads the viewer with color. Yet the work has spontaneity and freshness and conveys much with simplicity. Truly an exciting and talented artist.

Art is a whole way of understanding. There is a difference between someone who looks at the world with their eyes, opposing one who sees the world through their eyes. Kevin is one who can see. Not only in an artistic way, but depicted in a logical manner with all sincerity of mood.
