“I am inspired by contrasts.  I do not think in words.  I play loud music and plug into my life experiences.  I become full of emotions and I paint.”                                                                                                                        (Flavio Galvan)

From the beginning of his career, Galvan's work has been consumed with the obsessive search for detail, the diffusion of light and movement. These impulses have led him to develop at times dynamic scenes with figures flying in space; others are seen in extreme close up, (as in details). The vibrant palette of his early years, full of primary colors in contrast, has slowly evolved through Flavio's career to his present vocabulary, one in which he employs an exquisite and subtle gamut of tonalities that remind us of ancient oriental art.

Flavio Galvan is an Argentine artist currently residing and working in the United States. Over the past 20 years he has created successive bodies of work that demonstrate his mastery of classical techniques (oil, ink, pencils, etc..) while also experimenting with other media, including ceramic modeling paste and a wide variety of materials as forms of expression. His imagery ranges from energetic - almost frenetic - abstractions to realistic depictions of the human visage exploding into cosmic origins. ​ Flavio's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout South America and in the southern United States.

 


 

 

 


“For art to be great it must seem a spontaneous product of nature, born not willed; and for this to happen genius is necessary, an original power freed from the restraint of inherited rules.”                                                                                                                        (Immanuel Kant)

The philosophical architecture of Bill Lowe Gallery is built upon a reverence for the alchemical nature of artistic expression. Our vision honors the profoundly spiritual nature of visual language and the role it can play in affecting paradigm shifts at both a personal and societal level.

It is with this recognition that we have assembled a world-class stable of artists who intuitively have their fingers on the pulse of the Universe. Their expression is not an ironic or satirical look at the human condition. Instead, the gallery’s program presents powerful, content-driven works that utilize technical mastery and a visual eloquence to transform the human heart and soul at intimate levels.

For our collectors, the gallery is an oasis of beauty. Of civility. Of contemplation. This is coupled with a dynamism informed by a world view rooted in metaphysics, spirituality, philosophy, psychology and biology. Bill Lowe Gallery is a transformative experience that forever enlightens those who experience it. The gallery facilitates interaction between a broad cross-section of our community with an exotic array of artistic voices and languages to amplify and expand an unfolding cultural conversation.

Bill Lowe Gallery has become an institution in our region. We are widely considered the pre-eminent contemporary art gallery in the Southern United States. Our long presence in Los Angeles has fueled a kinetic dialogue between the East and West coasts. We approach the next decade of our mandate with clarity, commitment and excitement.
