Artist Kirk Larsen

For me, the best thing about being an artist, is that I have the joy of painting that what I love then someone gets to have the joy of that art in their lives; in their home or office to enjoy for generations to come. Being able to enrich and uplift peoples lives in such an enduring way is truly a blessing. Kirk Larsen Passionate about drawing and painting since early childhood, Kirk has never met a medium he didn't like. At last count at least 325 mediums and combinations. His recent work ranges from oil painting en plein air, studio maritime works fueled by a love for sailing and kayaking, acrylic fusion paintings and all forms of sculpture. Kirk is continues to gain international recognition as one the country fastest rising artists painting in major Plein air events Plein Air Easton, Easels in Frederick, Cranford paint the town, Callaway Plein air, Wayne Plein Air, Plein Air Curacao, Sagamore Plein Air .

He has been named resident Live painter at Islip Art Museum, painting at art museum events capturing the atmosphere and the event as it takes place. As one of the core artists of LIVE ART FUSION, his acrylic fusion works continue to wow audiences and garner great press.

An avid sailor, the past decade has introduced Kirk to classic, modern and one design yacht racing which has fueled a run of fascinating nautical and maritime artworks. His works have been selected for exhibit in the Mystic Seaport Gallerys 31st, 32nd, 33rd and 34th annual International Maritime art shows respectively, art currently in Quinlan Arts center museum show Southern Waters and his painting Skimmer vs. IVRE is currently on a 22 month, 8 museum, national tour as part of the American Society of Marine Artists Contemporary American Marine Art show. He is working on new wood and stone carvings this spring and a sculpture portfolio is forthcoming. Kirk has developed a teaching method that accelerates the learning curve in art. Proven to work with college students, elementary & high school level, adults, professional artists and seniors alike the method works regardless of medium and subject matter. Kirks perspective is to introduce an approach to artistic insight and information in its simplest, easiest to understand manner that if a student listens closely and takes notes in the first session, sometimes as short as one hour, that student would potentially have tools to continue teaching themselves for the rest of their lives. Additional sessions work with that foundation to inform, inspire and build a skill set that empowers the artist to grow at an exponential rate. He teaches experienced professionals to absolute beginners and enjoys doing demos and workshops. Additional creative indulgences include but are not limited to writing screenplays, essays, short stories, reviews and poetry; set design, film making, musician, gourmet cook, film and TV actor, photographer and motivational speaking.
