The works you experience here manifest a unique connection to the living an acute perception of the natural world by a fine artist of exceptional sensitivity. Carlton Bjork is a Southern California native whose work has reflected a life of growth, discovery and the positive auras of the life around him. His father was a potter, a woodworker, and a spiritual catalyst to Carltons exploration of his talent. At age seven, Carlton created ceramic renderings of the human face, going on to define his own path with woodcuts, watercolors, drawings, and pastel reflections of teenage self-discovery. Carlton is an avid snowboarder and surfer, passionately in touch with the ocean and all of his physical surroundings. No stranger to modern technologies and their usefulness in creative pursuits, Carlton went to school for animation, and has also accomplished a variety of imaging and webdesign methodologies. Today, Carlton is re-committed to the irreproducible, living connections between his world, his mind and his art, working primarily with oils, acrylics, canvas and wood. Carlton has achieved award-winning recognition in shows across the country, publications around the world from his past ventures, and now he's online among private collectors releasing new artwork daily. Carltons latest work literally vibrates with the highest frequencies of color and light. His whimsical settings sparkle with positive spirit. From the warmth of his apple trees and sunflowers to the intensely luminous hues of his tropical fish, the work of Carlton Bjork is a hyper-realistic expression of total purity, hope and joy.
