It isn’t often one witnesses the beginning of an extremely young artist’s career juxtaposed with a revered and respected artist such as Donald Alter, a man at the apex of his career and a full eight decades older. Just how young is this new budding Artist? Vincent Salem Nicolai is six years old and Alter is 87.
Donald Alter’s brand-new series is entitled, “POOLS, DRIPS AND SCRIBBLES”. Abstract paintings avoid the usual components while creating the imagery. Subject matter remains nondescript or in some cases dematerialized and borders and boundaries are not honored.
Vincent Salem Nicolai may be only 6 years old, but this talented young artist eats up the study of venerated artists like a kid going thru a box of cereal, nourished yet wanting more. Vincent has created a collection of art entitled "Magical Elements", vivid paintings comprised of brilliant watercolors representing the earth's natural matter, being "earth", "air", "fire", and "water", along with the mythological fifth element "aether.”
