David Kassan - Visual Artist

"I first started using Vasari Classic Artists' Oil Paint as a starving art student while studying at the Art Student's League of New York 16 years ago. I decided early on that to make the best work that I could at the time, I had to use the best materials and Vasari is the best. The uniqueness of their color range has since become the basis for my conceptual painting color space. It is how I understand my color observations in paint. Painting is a series of emotional responses to the subject in front of us, the strong chromatic quality and purity of each Vasari color helps me to record these emotional responses to the colors I'm seeing with more fidelity.

Some paints are too stiff and some are too fluid, Vasari’s uniform consistency makes it easy to alter the paint with mediums for any painting situation I find myself in. When I first started my painting training I had a basic foundation of 9 essential colors, over the years my palette has evolved and expanded to what is represented here, with more chromatic light colors that I tend to use on higher ends of the value scale to control temperature, not just value in my skin tones."
