Cultural Council of Palm Beach County Presents RON BURKHARDT SOLO EXHIBITION
The founder of Notism and Earth Art Paintings, Ron Burkhardt's current Letterscape paintings combine a unique abstract alphabet of precise word forms with hidden meanings and bold, geometric colors. His early influences were Basquiat, Pollack, Twombly and Rothko for their graphic sensibilities and rich color palettes. Burkhardt graduated from Western Michigan University and studied at the Art Students League of New York as well as the National Academy of Fine Art in New York. This internationally exhibited artist spends his time between the Hamptons and West Palm Beach and his work is held in collections worldwide.
