Kurt Anderson, American painter, is best known for his floral still life and figurative paintings. He is especially attracted to flowers as a subject because they allow the richest expression of color and the liveliest use of brushwork. These paintings have won him top honors with the Oil Painters of America, the Salon International and the Open Market National. He also won Grand Prize in International Artist magazine’s 2004 Floral Painting Challenge. "Anderson's techniques represent the collective wisdom of generations of artists - artists who've spent their lives learning to see, to understand what they saw, and then inventing ways to describe it in two dimensions... It's a nice gem to find in the middle of a sometimes confusing art world in which the skillful draftsman takes a back seat to the newest fad" - Editor Michael Ward in The Artist's Magazine.
