FRANK OLIVA

Frank Oliva draws a great deal of inspiration for his paintings from what he sees in these beautiful islands, particularly the ocean and the lush Hawaiian vegetation. In 2007, he visited Australia and discovered a whole new energy and art.  With the aboriginal paintings, he incorporates an instinctive gift for color with aboriginal designs and patterns.    His aboriginal series of paintings on furniture and canvas is unique.  Hundreds of bursting color “dots” bubble on the surface, and yet the effect is peaceful, harmonious and attuned with nature and the spirit of the aboriginal world.  Every piece is an original, every piece is celebration of color.

He paints with acrylics on canvas, handmade paper, palm fronds and wood. 

Frank Oliva is a member of the Association of Hawaii Artists, the International Society of Acrylic Painters(ISAP) and the Windward Artists Guild.  His paintings have been included in several galleries on Oahu, Nevada and California.  His canvas painting, “Aboriginal Paths” was accepted by the Honolulu Academy of Arts for the prestigious 2009 Artists of Hawaii juried art exhibition. He has received multiple awards with ISAP and other arts organizations and has been juried into numerous art exhibitions here and on the mainland.   He was named a winner in the Artists Magazine 31st Annual Art Competition and featured in the Dec 2014 issue. His work has been published in a book released May 2017 entitled A Celebration of Contemporary Art. Visit his website www.frankolivaislandart.comor contact Frank at , or 808 263 8223

Statement:

This large framed piece could depict an underworld,  unsettling picture of strange shapes and color….fire and golden air and flames perpetually lighting this unusual atmosphere.  There is considerable movement in the painting, which pours out from the picture onto the custom frame.  “Inferno” presents  a strange hot world and the paint is dynamically applied to enhance the mystery of this other world.
