An artist has a unique way of showing his love for the art. By starting from the scratch to innovating new things he does his best to showcase his talent. By doing just their best and being satisfied is the main goal of any passionate artist. Colors and hands form a unique bond and the strokes communicate the artist. One such artist is Jeff Sullivan whose strokes speak for him on the canvas.
The colorful journey of Jeff
Ever since a child Jeff has been active in the art, music and visual art. This speaks for his unique imagination and the unlimited ideas he showcases. He believed and desired to utilize this infinite wellspring and transferring that information into forms of creative expression thereby making his life worth living.
Over the years of being involved and often consumed by my dedication, perpetually practicing, and pushing the envelope has helped refine my relationship with this craft and relationship with my art.
The vibrancy that Jeff showcases in his art comes from the love for colors and the chromatic nature of the spectrum. The array of intense color that nature produces is at the core of all the work that he does. Most of his work is an honoring of gratitude for being able to see and touch the world, which he considers his blessing from god. Jeff has not just restricted himself to art but has tried many things over the years such as learning various musical instruments outside his cultural parameters like tabla and frame drum.
The Challenges of an artist
Jeff has established a name for himself. The journey like many artists wasn’t simple for him as well.
Every aspect of my journey in this field has been exciting and inspiring for me. Peripheral ARTeries which is a contemporary art magazine from Europe was my first publication. Being able to excel in it was an inspiration in itself.
Being a successful artist is a difficult job. With creativity and balance between the responsibilities and artistic time one attains the true success.
This is a difficult process and more often than not the job or work is the antithesis of what they feel they should be doing. This conflict can cause a sort of inner turmoil and has lead to the collapse of many artistic dreams.
Most of the artistic pieces of Jeff arise from the space that is created in meditation. An artist like him looks within for some sort of creative navigation. Rest of his inspirations can be culmination of experiences ranging from music to paintings, nature walks , a kiss or hug from a loved one, his sons sense of humor or his daughters wildly creative imagination.
