Trent Altman, from Louisville, KY, is an expressionistic, abstract artist creating paintings with brilliant color and texture since 2003. “Altman’s paintings exude a positive energy and boundary breaking openness that lift each image beyond the standard landscape painting, demonstrating a clear talent and skill that he has achieved in the face of autism. In his paintings, color and texture combine in an intriguing partnership that captures the tones and surfaces of outdoors and transmitting a personal emotion.” Agora Gallery, NYC.
