"The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them."   -Jackson Pollock
About Arthur Guerra

Arthur Guerra is a native of Texas who has mastered the art of watercolor and oil painting. Arthur states simply that he paints that which inspires him.

Arthur prefers to create individual works, each depicting a single subject rather than producing multiple works representing a series on one theme. Not only does this result in stunning variations in subject matter, but also in style and medium. Each modulates between techniques to best interpret the subject at hand. Arthur's primary works are created in oil or watercolor and range from realistic to abstract in style.

Arthur spent his early artistic years in New York City studying at the Pratt Institute under such artists as Franz Kline, Phillip Guston, and Walter Murch. He received a scholarship to the Swedish Royal Academy where he devoted a full year to the discipline of studying and painting the human figure.

After returning to New York City, Arthur completed his studies at the Pratt Institute and then went on to teach painting and design for two years at the Rocky Mountain School of Art in Denver, Colorado. For the past 14 years he has taught oil and watercolor painting at Northlake College in Irving, Texas.

Arthur’s works can be found in numerous private and corporate collections, including the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Commercially his work has appeared in publications such as Fortune, Forbes, Science Digest and Time magazines. Throughout his extensive artistic career his his work has been exhibited publicly in numerous shows in Denver Colorado, Rochester New York, Dallas Texas, and New York City.
