Josef Kote and his bold brushwork

 Touched by Love

Touched by Love

With the lightness of a true master's hand, Josef Kote combines classic academic and abstract elements, fusing these, literally letting them run into each other with dripping rivulets of riveting colors and light: by using his signature drip effect along the bottom.

Kote's trademarks are his bold brushwork, and sweeping strokes of vibrant colors applied - more often than not with a pallet knife while other areas of the canvas are left monochromatic and devoid of detail creating a negative space that lets the eye drift to infinity. The results are paintings that tremble in stillness with energy and light.

The years of practice and Kote's 8-year solid art education had prepared the young artist well to pursue his life's quest of living and breathing art. It had set him on his lifelong journey to find his own unique style and language, to create stupendous paintings pulsating with the light and energy that he sees all around him.

Josef Kote's work are a clear indication of the passion and continual development of his style, fluidity and growth as an artist. Thanks to a host of avid collectors worldwide, Kote has seen his dream and years of labor come to fruition. Achieving this goal, however, only made him strive for higher ones. He is continually striving to create a next-best piece of art for his fans and for the world in general.
