Howard Behrens is the world's most renowned palette artist, inspired to create his many masterpieces with a palette knife - a tool artists traditionally use to mix oil paints before applying them to canvas. "I kept changing my style," he explains. "I feel like every painting is a prerequisite for the next painting. You come across something that really rings a bell and starts you thinking differently, and you continue on with that new technique, style or subject matter. That's how I eventually got into palette knife painting. It was an evolutionary thing."
This evolution to today's rich, distinctive, texturized style has garnered Behrens numerous accolades and honors, including an appointment as an official artist of the 2002 Winter Olympics and the acceptance of many of his pieces into permanent museum archives around the world.
Experimentation, says this modern master, is crucial to his success. "I slowly started using the palette knife to paint on the canvas, starting out very fine and thin...then, it got thicker and heavier. Finally, the most amazing thing happened—the act of painting became the subject matter."
