Bio: Arthur Norcome lives in Hercules, Ca, and is originally from Philadelphia, PA. While growing up in Philadelphia he was introduced to Mondrian and Frank Lloyd Wright, two creators who remain some of his greatest influences. After earning his BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts he spent a few years designing logos and book illustrations. In the last few years, Arthur has rekindled his love of abstract art. His technical use of watercolor places a high emphasis on graphic elements and color saturation to convey thoughts and emotions. Arthur has recurring yearly shows with the Art of the African Diaspora and the Invisible Atelier and other venues.
Artist statement: My abstract paintings are an exploration of control vs chaos. I make use of watercolors’ natural luminosity and pair bold strokes with blocks of color to produce a structure that counterbalances the mediums’ desire to run free.
