Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Gesso and Graphite on Canvas and Wood.

“Our art is not for everyone,” said artist Kris Gebhardt, who has created a large collection with wife and business partner Angela Gebhardt.

Their art is very physical in stature. “Most pieces feature strength and beauty, but it’s not sugar-coated; it’s knocked around a bit just like life. We paint a lot of reality on our canvases. Even in its roughest form, you can still see the integration of strength and beauty.”

Kris, a published author, fitness expert and artist, laments that his work has changed over the years. Art is now his outlet for promoting whole body awareness. “It’s more subliminal than my books; people will leave our exhibits definitely thinking about their bodies.”

Angela’s contemporary abstracts are inspired by water while her sketch and figure paintings, monumental in scope and scale, integrate bold and surreal messages woven within each piece. The couple’s artistic efforts and passion for the human form always bring a BIG presence to private events, exhibits and Miami and New York art shows.

Kris began his artistic journey while touring galleries in Europe with singer-songwriter (and accomplished painter) John Mellencamp in the mid-90s. Angela began painting in her youth, but lost contact with her brush to build a business. The brush continued to call her, and after selling her business, she gave in fully to her artistic endeavors. Angela is also “the muse” for hundreds of Kris’ photographs that have been published all over the world. In fact, it was a figure photograph of Angela that caught the attention and inspired the iPhone App FOTOMUSE.
