Reakistic paintings by David Jon Kassan

Monday, 6 September 2010

As an expression of his own calculated observation and visual
consumption of surrounding environment, introspective glimpses of
reality imbue the art of David Jon Kassan. By immersing himself into his
subject matter, Kassan is able to infuse his painting with life and
realism. Kassan's direction of realism follows the philosophies emplyed
by the Ashcan School of American Realists. Kassan's influences are
varied; citing Robert Henri and John Sloan as his primary influences on
philosophy and subject matter. As for style and technique he cites
Antonio Lopez Garcia, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Clyfford Still as
influences as well.
