Artist Statement

My newest series, Let There Be Light, is presented in an abstract, street, folk or pop art format – sometimes it’s a mixture of all of them. These paintings also incorporating simple neon shapes that elude to it’s name.

You too can see the light, and it will be good.

 

Biography

Howard Weliver has been interested in the arts his entire life. Graduating from Stephen f. Austin State University in 1992 with a B.F.A. in Advertsing Design with a minor in photography, and then a M.A. In Design Communications, he has spent the majority of the last 25 years in Commercial Arts.

Originally from Texas, he discovered Taos, New Mexico after taking a 11 year break from art to start a restaurant/bar branding company (Nosh Creative) while traveling with his wife, Lauren, in there motorhome (Nosh Bus).

Currently he is making the permanent transition from commercial art to fine art. Through this metamorphosis, he has incorporated some of influences (Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean Basquiat and Banksy) into a unique artistic style that he is calling “abstreet”.
