Savlen’s work stands out for the same reason the eye is inclined to fasten on the artist amid a roomful of people. His paintings & personality resonate with vitality. His broad brushstrokes & bold palette are bursts of color & spontaneity. So alive with electricity his work explodes off the canvas. This vivacity is what keeps the viewer coming back. As an outdoorsman he finds nature is truth in the purest form,unadorned by artifice, a refreshment to the mind & the senses.
