FATHER. HUSBAND. VETERAN. ARTIST. Life driven-acclaimed artist, curator, writer and veteran, Bryan Dubreuiel is highly recognized for his approach to redefining figurative abstract art. Booming with dynamic, glowing, textured colors, Bryan Dubreuiel’s canvases, range from glowing still life and figurative silhouettes to completely abstracted compositions. Irrespective of the subjects in his works, Dubreuiel deals in temperatures, movements and sounds arranged within expanding boundaries. His flowing, glowing, simmering palette of warm, frenetic yellows and reds and more calming, gliding blues and cool greens give his art an edgy multi-sensorial dimension that shifts and mutates as it leaps across different parts of each canvas. His shades and hues sometimes take over the whole composition, only to be hit with a blue or red to catch the viewer’s eyes. The whole creates a sense of energy build up and accelerating motion, of momentum gathering with each successive brush stroke. Explaining the intense liveliness of his work, Dubreuiel cites the formative nature of world traveling experiences to provide him with the bright colors, sounds and smells as a guide to each completed piece. His paintings include everyday scenes and memories (city views, people talking, and animals) with the excitement of songs remembered, sometimes half forgotten, of smells and textures amplified through the intensity of colors and shapes.
