Featured Artist Dover Abrams

Dover Abrams

Dover Abrams, a former graffiti artist, exchanged spray cans for paint brushes and discovered the most creative phase yet in his artistic evolution. Where plastic nozzles once spewed visual statements on concrete and stucco, now tubes of oil paint are blended in bold, sweeping lines on canvas and plywood, applied in a rhythm that finds its pace between the passion of youth and the measured understanding of creative maturity. Abrams often paints 10 hours or more a day, typically finishing one or more paintings in one session at the easel. His love of art and life flood off the canvas in a vibrant array of colors. Abrams lives in Hawaii.
