About us and our contemporary art..
Beautiful Works ... Intriguing Artists
Platris Fine Art offers superior quality original oil paintings and prints by emerging contemporary artists. We choose artwork based on quality, trend-setting potential and message. The artwork must be of the highest quality and demonstrate mastery of the art. Each collection represents a new unique style of art which we believe will be a trendsetter for future artists and possibly art movements. This is the art other artists try to copy. Finally, we focus on art which portrays joy and beauty, color and light instead of the negative. Still, as part of the balance found in all things, our colorful art will often have hints of our introspective and sensual sides.
Our artists can be described as exceptional people starting at an early age, who have obtained artistic mastery through traditional studies, travel and experience. These are painters and sculptors who possessed extremely uncommon raw artistic talent which they then perfected by dedicating their lives to pushing those abilities as far as they will go. Perhaps it is more than coincidence – part of some larger divine plan, that our artists also have very intriguing and exotic pasts which can be seen in their highly intelligent and colorful personalities.
While our artists and their art represent a potential emerging art trend and unique style, they can be loosely be categorized as influenced by abstract art, impressionism, expressionism, contemporary and modern art, as well as Japanese and Chinese art. While you can see evidence of the old masters in almost any work of art, they are still viewed as significantly different, fresh and new.
