Aryea Flohr had a love of painting from a early age. He attended the New York University, graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art and Visual Culture. His work has appeared in many publications, like his recent interview for Patch, and he has been a featured artist at various art fairs and exhibitions. Aryea is very passionate about art and it takes him on many journeys. When he wants to paint something in his style of realism he likes to be in its environment.
The creative process is important to Aryea. He enjoys being immersed in the process of creating something, and that's what drives him. He has explored landscape and abstract painting media for over 10 years. Aryea Flohr is always searching for new techniques and materials to experiment with. His main focus is the relationship between color and perspective.
Aryea Flohr is currently exhibiting a range of contemporary landscapes in oil using vibrant colours in red, blue, orange and yellows. His paintings are mainly landscapes and seascapes but animals often appear. His work has been featured on television and in newspapers at both local and national level. Aryea had solo exhibitions throughout the US, including several in New York.
For Aryea Flohr, the most important aspect of a painting is what it does not reveal; only what it can suggest. Painting “on the edge” keeps the mystery and energy alive in his work. As the paintings reveal themselves to him, he begins to refine and edit the piece and this process becomes part of his spiritual practice.
