Chihuly's paintings often mirror the expressive and dynamic qualities found in his glasswork. He is known for using bold and sweeping strokes, along with a vibrant color palette that characterizes much of his artistic output. These paintings serve as an extension of his creative process, offering a two-dimensional exploration of the forms, colors, and energy that define his three-dimensional glass sculptures. Similar to his approach to glass, Chihuly's paintings are marked by experimentation and evolution. His early ventures into drawing involved charcoal and graphite, gradually transforming into more vivid illustrations through the exploration of diverse materials.

In this Untitled acrylic painting, Dale Chihuly captures the inspiration for a Black and Marigold Indian Blanket Basket with Red Lip Wrap. The Indian Blanket series of glass art was a pivotal part of Chihuly's artistic evolution. He used groundbreaking techniques of insert threads and pick up drawings to add detail and color to his vessels. The work is signed "Chihuly" on the bottom front and includes a certificate of authenticity from our gallery, Modern Artifact.

About Dale Chihuly

One of the most famous contemporary glass artists in the world, Dale Chihuly is best known for his monumental sculptures and installations. He is the name behind the spectacular ceiling at the Bellagio's flower garden in Las Vegas and the creator of the Rotunda Chandelier at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Glass works of Dale Chihuly are considered some of the most desired collectibles between the decorative arts devotees today.

Despite his initial indifference towards education, Chihuly has spent a lot of time in school, obtaining both scientific and artistic degree in sculpture from prestigious graduate schools. He displayed a proclivity for interior design and craft early on, but his true passion was always in the glass. He was a Fulbright Fellow in the late 1960s and an apprentice at the Venini Glass Factory in Venice. Mastering the art of Murano glasswork, he continued the experiments with glassblowing and thus became one of the people who brought the ancient art of glassblowing back into the spotlight on an international scale.

Monumental and small-scale artwork of Dale Chihuly is present in over 200 most renowned decorative art collections today, while the artist holds twelve honorary doctorates!

The most illustrious series in his work are Cylinders and Baskets he created in the 1970s; Macchia, Venetians, and Persians from the 1980s, Niijima Floats and Chandeliers created in the 1990s; and a more recent one, Fiori from the 2000s.

For over 30 years, Dale Chihuly has been acting as an artistic director of his team of craftsmen, since he was incapacitated in two accidents, which left him blind in one eye and incapable of holding the blowing tube. This change allowed him to see the possibilities of glass work on a broader scale, while still maintaining his recognizable style.
