Skyuka Fine Art in Tryon, NC, Offers Works by Dave Capalungan

Skyuka Fine Art in Tryon, NC, is presenting Big Blooms, featuring works by Dave Capalungan, on view through Aug. 9. 2013.

The exhibit features the recent works of illustrator turned fine artist Dave Capalungan. Capalungan is an accomplished artist who creates works of painterly realism. His subjects have often included still lifes as well as portraiture.

However, in this new series Capalungan uses bold colors and focuses on the contrast between light and shadow, employing brush strokes ranging from detailed to loose to depict gorgeous and lush larger than life florals. The result of these fresh blooming floral pieces, often being blown up 5 times their size, is stunning .

“I have always been an artist; with stops in advertising, digital work, and architectural renderings over the years. Now as a painter, I want to share my impression of the beauty of everyday life with paint, canvas and brush,” says Capalungan who hails from Detroit and studied at College For Creative Studies.
