Father/Son Collaboration

Yesterday afternoon artist Jay Rolfe attended the opening reception for his friend artist Antonio Puri and his son Alexander Puri who have collaborated on several large abstract paintings on canvas over the past few years starting in 2004. It was interesting that in the early years of the collaboration the son's style seemed to be the same as the father's style, so that one was unable to tell which part was painted by each. In the more recent paintings, the son has developed some of his own style and one can discern who painted some parts of the paintings. If Alex wants to pursue painting, he sure has a great start! They have titled their exhibit "My Kid Could Do That." The paintings are on display at Westtown School near West Chester PA.

That's the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's Unique Artistic Idea, his Hyper Representational 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at Artist Jay Rolfe uses vibrant color, 3-D, recognizable shape, and huge size to reveal beauty, touch emotion in a positive way, and create an Uplifting Conversation Piece.
