Juror: Randall Graham
Randall’s passion for art has been apparent since childhood. His love of drawing and creating stories through works of art started at a very young age and hasn’t stopped yet. He studied at The Carlin Academy of Fine Art. Bo Bartlett has taught Randall and influenced his style. He was born in Malvern, Pa and today resides in West Chester, PA with his family; the tradition of Chester County artists continues with Randall. He keeps a studio in Malvern where he works and teaches traditional painting fundamentals.
Mr. Graham has an ambitious approach when it comes to painting. His work comes in a variety of channels including studio work, en plein air (outdoor painting) and his “en rain air” style. The “en rain air” style comes about from painting a scene from his mini van or window while it is raining. The rain drops on the window act as a means for abstraction. The juxtaposition of abstract and reality creates emotional paintings which have become very popular with Randall’s collectors.
His love for art shines when he share his knowledge of painting through teaching. Helping others create is a truly gratifying experience. Randall teaches traditional painting fundamentals at Randall Graham Studio in Malvern, Wayne Art Center and Chester County Art Association.
