Jose Trujillo is an impressionist painter of rare talent, a prolific painter whose landscapes, seascapes and still lifes are a dreamy, fantasy of colors. His brushwork is impeccable and we think he is to be collected now before his prices skyrocket and galleries, collectors and museums take notice, which they are sure to do. Trujillo has been called a modern Monet. His exquisite, smaller studies are created en plein aire, larger ones in his studio so they can be carefully reworked as needed.
Born in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1982, his first inspirations were the elaborate architectural designs of Spanish Baroque cathedrals he saw as a young boy. At the age of nine, the Trujillo family immigrated to the United States and landed in Tucson. Jose sketched casually as a young man without any formal training. When a large print of Monet’s Water Lilies at Giverny ignited his passion to seriously paint, Trujillo began actively studying art. His days were spent observing nature and visiting museums. Today he works full time from his Tucson studio. The result is an extensive body of work from a talented original artist of quality whose vibrant colors and bold brush strokes are magical gems.
