Innovative artist Gabriel Burchman paints with rich, earthen colors on top of gold and silver leaf which lends to his paintings their characteristic warmth and luminous antique effect.
Gabriel was born into a family of artists in California. Both parents and grandparents were successful artists. He earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Santa Cruz in 1997 and has been painting professionally since 2003. After trying various styles, it was the gold leaf technique he learned from his mother that really captured his focus.
Growing up in Laguna Beach he was surrounded by the ocean and the Laguna Mountains. Gabriel's fascination with nature and waves shines through in his subject matter. We are allowed to experience this vicariously through his deep appreciation for the ocean and the tremendous allure of the tranquil surroundings captivated in his art.
