American contemporary artist Morgan
Weistling was born in 1964. He began
studying ikusstvo at an early age by his
father. His father told me how to access
and use your imagination, "My dad and
I were immersed in the drawing and
talking to each other pictures"
This led to the study of a small Morgan
books on art, which his father had
acquired a few years ranee.A
subsequently worked with him Fred
Fiksler. School Fred called Brandes Art
Institute, was dedicated to one thing: the
study of how to make life work.
Once, when Morgan was a student and worked in
an art store, a famous illustrator entered the shop.
Morgan showed him my student's work and the
next day he was invited to work in one of the main
agencies developing posters for Hollywood films,
where he prorabotal14 years, illustrating for every
movie studio in Hollywood, as well as in many other
fields of illustration.
Morgan Weistling- Artist Morgan Weistling approaches
his art with the finely honed skills and tireless dedication
of the old masters. This classical style of oil painting
brings his tender, homespun scenes to vivid life. Stand
back from a Weistling image and the details begin to
emerge-- a dented pewter pitcher filled with flowers, the
roses in the cheeks of a young girl gathering eggs…
Technique and subject combine with great emotional
warmth in these unforgettable paintings.
AFTER YEARS OF THIS DEMANDING WORK, HE YEARNED TO
CREATE SOMETHING FROM HIS HEART. JUST AS THE QUALITY OF
HIS ILLUSTRATION-STYLE ART HAD BEEN IMMEDIATELY
RECOGNIZED, SO IT WAS WITH HIS FINE ART CAREER.
THE FIRST GALLERY HE WALKED INTO IN
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, SIGNED HIM
IMMEDIATELY. COLLECTORS RESPONDED TO
HIS SUPERIOR TECHNICAL SKILL AND THE
WARMTH OF HIS SUBJECT MATTER BY
PURCHASING THE ORIGINALS ALMOST BEFORE
THEY COULD BE FRAMED, AND ROUTINELY
CLEARING THE WALLS ON THE OPENING
NIGHT OF HIS ONE-MAN SHOWS.
MORGAN WEISTLING’S BEAUTIFUL OIL PAINTINGS ARE NOW IN
THE PERMANENT COLLECTIONS OF PRESTIGIOUS MUSEUMS
AND HAVE CONSISTENTLY WON MAJOR AWARDS, INCLUDING
THE COVETED PRIX DE WEST AWARD AT THE NATIONAL
COWBOY AND WESTERN HERITAGE MUSEUM AND THE
PATRONS’ CHOICE AND ARTISTS’ CHOICE AWARDS AT THE
MASTERS OF THE AMERICAN WEST EXHIBIT AT THE AUTRY
NATIONAL CENTER. HE IS ALSO A HIGHLY SOUGHT-AFTER
TEACHER, BOTH IN PRIVATE WORKSHOPS AND AT THE
SCOTTSDALE ARTIST SCHOOL.
