Howard Behrens

Howard Behrens, the world's most renowned palette knife artist, has signed on with Vutec Corporation, and a selection of his artwork below!

For the past 25 years Mr. Behrens has had a romance with the sun. From the idyllic lakes of Italy to the intimate gardens of New England, the artist has danced with her, chased her, seen her in her many different moods. Behrens' motivation comes from his strong passion to capture the "essence" of the places he visits around the world. The artist has been influenced by Monet, Van Gogh and Nicola Simbari, the Italian palette knife artist. Using the palette knife, Behrens captures not only the softness of clouds, but also the boldness of mountains, the vibrancy of flowers, and the strength of water. Behrens moves the palette knife furiously as he applies deep, rich color in many layers to achieve dimension and mood. His skill with this instrument has earned him recognition as America's leading palette knife artist. Behrens has had over 150 one-man shows from coast-to-coast since becoming a professional artist in 1980. His works have been on the covers of many art publications and he has been the featured subject of numerous magazines and newspapers. The most recent Behrens' collectors are former President George Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush.
