Color, gesture, and geometry—the most elemental aspects of modern art. Drawing inspiration from the early 20th century masters of shape and color like Piet Mondrian and his contemporary Theo van Doesburg, our curation of bold and graphic minimalist pieces explores aesthetic harmony in geometric play.

Pools, beaches, swimming holes: these are the places, that joyous feeling of endless summer. Images of glimmering water and sun-kissed skin brings us back to a favorite vacation, the family cabin, or splashing around in the backyard pool. Playing with a bright and crisp palette of blues and pinks, our collection is fresh, modern, and graphic.

From underwater beauties captured by preeminent photographer Deanna Templeton, to the sunburnt backs rendered by Taiwanese painter Yang-Tsung Fan, as well as a variety of artwork from our own exclusive licensed artists, the collection captures the heat of summer. So slather on the SPF 30 and jump into summer.

Farmboy Fine Arts has a long-standing partner in David Dean. As one of the earliest photographers with which we began collaborating, David has spent the last ten years developing his style and range – and shows no sign of slowing down. Based in Calgary, Alberta, his images are rooted in place and experience, much like the life and work of a farmer.

David’s photography is diverse and engaging, ranging from thoughtfully composed architectural shots to far-away landscapes and adventure-fueled travel imagery. His playful nature comes through in explorations of positive and negative space, and the value of each. Whether capturing quiet moments in the midst of a bustling city, or savoring the essence of a new vista, David’s work speaks for itself.

French artist Edgar Degas once wrote, “Art is not what you see but what you make others see”. In this collection luxury is in the detail, subtle regional elements and materials reflect a sense of place. With an elegant, architectural approach, each artwork has been selected for its local significance, telling a meaningful story.

Beauty is achieved through the sophisticated palette and contrast of materials; brass, cement, slate, wood, and mirror complement and contradict one another. The play between dark and light, curve, and angle enhance a bold and balanced display.

Farmboy Fine Arts was first introduced to Dana Mooney, a Vancouver-based painter, in 2013. Our team was immediately impressed with Dana’s ability to read an interior space and create pieces to perfectly complement it. True to form, Dana secured her first hotel lobby commission with FBFA not long after signing — a striking, gestural piece for the Vancouver Hyatt.

Initially drawn to her abstracted ‘Birch Tree’ series, which offers a subtle nod to nature, FBFA has watched her artistic range grow. Her portfolio offers florals and abstracts, small-scale studies and large-scale murals, soft pastels and vivid tones. Each series she creates offers a slightly different aesthetic, appealing to masculine and feminine audiences alike.

Dana is currently preparing for an artist residency in Sicily. We look forward to seeing how this new location will serve as fresh inspiration and wish her safe travels!

Stylish and contemporary, multi-dimensional artwork continues to be a prevalent trend for FBFA in 2017. Pattern and sculpture are taken to a new spatial level, providing environments with an unexpected wow-factor. This collection highlights our curator’s picks for must-see dimensional artists, plus selections recently created by the FBFA Studio Design team.
