'I see colors vividly. It’s the first thing I focus on when I’m outside. Yes, at first glance that should be a grey, but look closer…'

Details that draw your gaze back into Savlen’s scenes again and again, as you live the vibrancy of that moment with the artist. Can you feel it? Do you know this scene?Through Savlen’s work, art lovers worldwide live their passion for nature and art through the 'Savlen Kaleidoscope'.

Traditional artistic style and techniques with contemporary, vibrant colors
No art category can capture or confine Savlen’s fine art. And that’s exactly the way he loves it. Savlen has yet to meet an artistic boundary he didn't want to push. Every time he steps into his studio, a fresh adventure in art begins. Savlen constantly experiments with different mediums to cross new frontiers with his art.
Despite choosing a different journey from the classic art school approach, Savlen sought out the finest teachers for every traditional artistic method he wanted to master. He learnt about art from the best, by their side.
Now artists, young and the no-longer-quite-so young, from around the world, study Savlen’s style and his unique mix of classical skills and contemporary techniques - using his pioneering work to refine their art. Savlen's contemporary style and color theory form part of the ongoing curriculum for students at London's Royal Academy of Arts.
Savlen’s work ebbs and flows between figuration and abstraction, using colors alive with movement, sharp contrasts, varied brushwork and lyrical notes, all designed to capture your gaze and draw you back again and again to the art.
‘I paint life, not scenes. I paint the vibrancy of nature in all its glorious colors. The moments I capture on canvas are feelings, memories and moments I have lived. I paint from my emotions, from the life I live. I don’t plan my paintings – apart from living the life I need to create them. I want to discover the scene as I paint it, for the emotions to unfold spontaneously, like a story.’
Every Savlen Original begins life the same way - with a blank canvas and Savlen's limitless imagination. Getting that moment, that memory, onto the canvas is a truly organic process. Like meditation – it flows.
When you gaze into a Savlen Original you live a moment with the artist. You share the visceral emotional connection Savlen experienced in that instant when he captured life’s immediacy in all its beauty.
‘I paint what I have lived, in vivid colors that feel alive with adventure. The high chroma color palette I use, and my layering technique, give a contemporary look to my traditional fine art techniques.’
