Sunil Vilas Exclusive Interview’s
Q. Sunil – When did you first realize you were an artist?
A. David – That is a tough question. For a long time after graduating from a Design:Glass BA(Hons) degree I struggled to give myself the title ‘artist’. I would look at the artists from history that I had studied and found it impossible to put myself into the same category. Even now if someone asks me what I do I am more likely to say ‘glass maker’, my friends and clients refer to me as an artist. I suppose that I realised that I was an artist when that was the title I was given by means of an introduction but it is still an uncomfortable moniker. So many people refer to themselves as artists these days that the word is almost redundant as an effective description of what one does, so I still refer to myself as a glass maker because it is the word ‘maker’ that is so important to me.

Distinctively contemporary in his work, artist Glen Josselsohn’s signature art style offers the perfect solution to complement a modern and chic room design.
There’s nothing quite like art to give a room a character of its own. If the décor is the room’s attire, the paintings on the walls are definitely its attitude!
If there was ever a good example of this analogy, it’s the work of contemporary artist, Glen Josselsohn. Not only does his art buzz with energy and movement, but it opens up the imagination, engages the senses and ignites a sense of curiosity within the viewer. What really is going on between those lines and squiggles, those figures leaping off the canvas? Read more…

My first recollection of works of art was at age seven when I saw the floor to ceiling paintings at the Emperor’s Palace in Vienna, Austria. I was mesmerized and still carry the impact of the experience.
I first started dabbing in oils in my late teens but did not seriously take up painting until my early twenties. Growing up in Ontario, Canada and having an affinity for the out Doors, drew me to the works of the “Group of Seven”. I began painting on site through all seasons and traveled throughout the country.

On the cusp of two creative signs, the tiger and the rabbit, I was born in Houston, Texas. With a creative push from day one, I took up the brush by age ten. In my early years as a budding artist I decided that oil painting was not my thing but watercolor and ink were. That really never changed but the style vacillated from realism to fantasy throughout those formative years. It was not until a bit of aging wisdom came to me that I sought out a teacher and found Frank Chiu, a master artist in traditional Chinese painting. He mentored me for over a decade and was later joined by his wife, Judy. Read more…
I became interested in art at an early age. I remember looking at the ‘Draw Me’ ads in comic books and various other publications. I started by taking one of their correspondence courses. I took art classes in Junior High School and was a frequent visitor to the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City after school hours. I intensively studied Water Color and Acrylic painting, Life Drawing, Graphic Art and Design, Technical Illustration and Airbrush Photo Retouching during several decades that I lived in California. I gave no thought to ‘being in the arts’ when I was young. I find creating art to be an outlet for my thoughts and experiences. Read more

Throughout my life I have always had a greater visual sense about how the world looked versus other senses. This visual dominance in perceiving the world has profoundly affected my work as an artist. My art offers an infinite variety of visual perceptions and interpretations for the viewer. The viewer is told what the “real Life” image is in the title of the piece, but through abstraction and reconstruction of that image, the viewer is then asked and challenged to explore the shapes, colors, movements and forms, which the abstraction and reconstruction presents. Colors and shapes become emotion, while form and movement become attitude. Even when a work is easily recognized there is still a predominate thread of color, movement, shape and form. The techniques to achieve these photographic abstractions and reconstructions are a thoughtful and purposeful digital manipulation. Using a mouse rather than a brush to achieve a powerful medium of expression and communication, creates this style of fine art… read more.
