He is a self-taught artist, who became interested in light, color and motion at a very young age. As a young artist, he began visiting museums and studying the paintings of the old masters, finding that he was drawn to the Impressionist’s “blurry” view of the world. Observing the color and style of these paintings transformed how he looked at my world. Once he saw the depth of color in the Impressionist’s view of the sky, he was hooked. After viewing the Impressionist artwork, he was unable to view the majestic skies of Arizona without spending hours contemplating their beauty.
Jose Trujillo believes he paints because he loves nature and life. A perfect day for the artist involves nothing more than looking at a subject until its true essence reveals itself as the colors become vibrant and he can truly “see” the subject. He believes a painting should represent the subject and its relationship to the world— it should be a celebration of its existence in the universe in the best possible light. He hopes that he is able to convey this in his work and strives to do so with every painting he creates.
