Harvey Rogosin - Photos To Canvas
Harvey Rogosin is a native New Yorker who has resided in East Brunswick, New Jersey for the past 32 years. As a self-taught artist, he began experimenting with oil painting in his early years, producing colorful landscapes and contemporary/abstract art. He studied Architecture at New York Institute of Technology, which contributed to his artistic endeavors. The responsibilities of being a husband, father and working architect temporarily halted the physical aspects of painting for Harvey but did not curtail his desire over the years to continue with creative pursuits.
Once he resumed his desire to paint, pastels were the medium he most preferred due to its work-ability and wonderful array of colors. Harvey paints almost entirely from compositions he creates from digital photographs. He takes trips and can be anywhere when a scene catches his eye. He envisions these scenes behind glass with matting and frame where colors and patterns of light and dark have so much of an effect on his work.
He has displayed at fine art fairs and exhibitions throughout New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. His influences are Vermeer for his use with light, shadow and realism, Degas for his influence with pastel, Pissarro for his space between realism, impressionism and detail, and Van Gogh for his vision.
