Hello Art Lovers.
“Music and art “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” Plato
Kyle DeMoreta’s watercolour paintings are a vivid representation of his bond between music and art. His creations make the beauty of music, of sound, become visible to the eye of the beholder. They are a visual representation of the very soul of music itself. One look at Kyle’s works and you are drawn in like a moth to a flame.
“Music and art go hand in hand for me, if I'm ever drawing or painting then I'm listening to music.”
Kyle taught himself how to create these beautiful works of art at an early age.
The subjects of his portraits have influenced Kyle in some way, share the same philosophy on life, or have similar personality traits.
Kyle begins each portrait by choosing the proper music to set the atmosphere .
He creates his portraits by starting with the same three colours every time.
“There’s never really any plan or direction before I start painting, I just listen to the music and let it take control. Each one of my paintings are completely unique and different from each other. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the same frame of mind, or had the same feelings motivate me with any two of my paintings. The execution in which I use my colours and move my hand along the paper is different with each piece.”
Kyle’s work has been universally praised by artists, and patrons of the gallery, since he began displaying them.
The positive comments about Kyle’s work are too numerous to list on this small blog, suffice to say that he is a favourite of many art lovers from around the world.
For those of you who love body art, Kyle is also a tattoo artist.
I believe this quote from the great Ray Charles sums up Kyle and the spiritual connection he has with his work.
“I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me - like food or water.” Ray Charles
