Caib Kelly is a watercolour artist & multi art prize winner in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. drawing inspiration from an infinite source of subject matter, the artist explores creative landscape, streetscape & life with a creative approach inspired by impressionists both past & present thus, transforming subject into visual & tonal expression. The balance between inspiration, subject & visual language and, a lifetime of creative artistic endeavours, contribute to the artist’s passion of impressionistic and atmospheric art.
Caib Kelly has been an artist for many years and has explored the realm of oil, acrylic, sketch and watercolour. A multi art prize winner in the region of the Norther Rivers in New South Wales, the artist was recognised for two sections of the Bentley Art Prize 2019 taking out both “landscape” and, “around Bentley” sections with subsequent purchase of both pieces. The artist followed up with first prize in landscape at the North Coast National Tursa Art Prize in landscape and purchase of several pieces of art. In 2022, the artist was awarded first prize at the Coraki Art Prize and subsequent sale of both prize entries.
Born in England, the artist settled in Australia in 1968 and continued his passion for artistic expression inspired by such masters as Vincent Van Gogh, Claud Monet, Turner and, many more. Recent inspiration and passion for watercolour impressionism arise from modern masters such as Joseph Zbukvic, Chien Chung Wei & Michael Solovyev.
Watercolour is a commanding mistress which, when truely understood, reveals incredible surprises as one paints. It can, and will, paint itself if left alone, creating happy accidents in conjunction with expressive atmospheric intentions. This is why Caib Kelly paints and why watercolour excites and continually challenges the artist to explore and refine this realm of modernist impressionism.
