Dramatic gestural dialog and the dynamic interplay of brilliant colors on a large scale best characterize the work of painter Mark Olson.

An MFA graduate from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, Olson’s work with acrylic paint and soft pastel on both canvas and wood panels has been featured in homes, businesses and galleries in the United States as well as Europe.

“Color has its own set of visual rules and expectations,” Olson says, “the best part about painting is exploring ways to take those rules apart or just plain break them.”
