Mikael Olson: Impasto Oil Painter

Mikael Olson paints with thick buttery brush strokes allowing textures to fill the canvas developing a shimmering vibrancy much like the early Impressionists experimentations. Olson is expressive with his paintings and the viewer has a sense he applied the paint straight from the tube. He is an urban lifestyle painter depicting contrast and similarity.

Mikael has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine’s “21 under 31” and “Artists to Watch.” Olson received a “Best of Show” award at the Art Students League of Denver. But he says the most significant artist that influenced his painting career was Andrew Wyeth. Mikael says what drew him towards Wyeth’s style was his straight forwardness.
