King Clovis invites us in his Bushwich studio. Brooklyn, NY
…welcoming us with a bouquet of brushes. Away from shallow fashionable painting, Clovis works on canvas like a builder, for him there is no image creation without starting with a strong foundation and moving ‘up’ like constructing a tower. The difference is that is craftsmanship is not only bold but his transitions are smooths and translucents. In 2014, New York, in order to convey full harmony to his art, Clovis is not shy to travel further away than the Roman times to find his learning … his work encompasses an universality that disregard trend line.
