Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyle Trudelle.
Kyle, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Since I was a small boy I have had a passion to create. When I was 16 years old I was able to use oil paint for the first time and painted my first oil painting entitled Lady Magdaline.
Once I painted my first painting it was clear this was what I was gifted to do with my life. Since then I have worked hard to create and share my artwork with the world around me.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My artwork has many diverse styles and mediums, however, the artwork I enjoy creating most is romantic realism. Creating realistic oil paintings of the human form that tell a story and provoke thought has become my forte.
The human form can be a controversial subject and gives me the platform to change the way we view the human form back to its purity and simplicity. When people encounter my work, I want it to create a dialogue between the creation and the viewer, leaving the viewer inspired and changed to see the beauty of life around them.
Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
Unfortunately, I believe the mainstream art world has become very political and raw talent has been pushed aside. Social media has opened a platform for artists to show their work to more people than they have before, causing the art world to be over saturated with manufactured reproductions. This has placed a huge pressure on the artist to try and be different enough from everyone else in order to be noticed.
I think the best way for an artist to be successful today is for them to focus on creating what they are passionate about and not be overtaken by the need to create for the purpose of being seen or to make money. Their passion will promote their work.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My Instagram page is the most active with current works and commission pieces.
People can support me by sharing my work through social media and purchasing my work so that more people can be inspired.
