Meet Glenn Deneve

Today we’d like to introduce you to Glenn Deneve.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I was born in Bruges, Belgium. Growing up in one of the oldest and most magnificent cities of Europe, I became keenly aware of life’s inherent splendor. Elements of my early home life helped shape my imagery providing a solid foundation for my artistic career.

From childhood, I was drawn to the United States and the creative vibe of California. In 1997, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dreams. I am drawn to nature, light, and the reflection of the sun on urban buildings – through a desire to uncover their harmony and beauty.

“Throughout the day I absorb the beauty I am surrounded by, with a conscious determination to eliminate any ugliness that might pop-up!! When I stand in front of the canvas, this influx of joy comes out of my system and flows unto the canvas in the form of bright colors, movements and shapes until it is fully expressed!! The process of painting is cathartic, a purification of the soul, it brings about a renewal of my inner self.”

Please tell us about your art.
I make mainly paintings on canvas or wood panels; the inspiration comes from all aspects of life…see previous question. Most of my colors are bright and happy colors and I want to make people happy when they look at my work

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
You have to divide your time by spending time in the studio but also by interacting with people and being social
There are plenty of possibilities to interact with people true Instagram.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Mostly, I work with private clients who are referrals from previous clients and I work a lot with interior designers who refer their clients to me and some people saw my work on Instagram. I do work with some galleries as well who are spread out true out the world. I also use my house as a gallery where people can come and see the work in person. People can support my work by buying some pieces.
