And artists can practice drawing and photographing models at ArtGym, not to mention discussing each other’s work at The Gathering.
Now, Netherlands’ artist Dyon Scheijen is holding court
as its artist-in-residence.
|Dyon Scheijen painting at San Diego Art Institute|
Scheijen is an abstract artist, echoing the large canvases and emotional connectiveness in Mark Rothko’s paintings.
What makes Scheijen’s approach interesting is that he
engages the environmental space which he will fill with his paintings. Large
spaces might require a layout with specific measurements. Other areas are more
amenable to a more immediate layout. This is what Scheijen is finding with the
space he is working with at the San Diego Art Institute. Read more at Scheijen's blog.

Scheijen is self-taught and has been engaged in his abstract painting approach since 1999.
