In this clip we view an exhibition featuring Kim Dorland that took place at Mike Weiss Gallery in 2012:

Price range information:Sorry none available.

What I enjoy about this artist is his willingness to paint anything. I have seen many scenes of people skating on ice, but the artist puts a contemporary twist by adding some street art graffiti to the composition.

Below a link to the website of the artist:


Nearly all of the paintings by Dorland are made of mixed media including oils and acrylic paint.

Dorland made a decision that at 17 he wanted to be a professional artist. He hasn’t looked back since!

Price range information: Original works range from $10,000 to $40,000.

The artist is based out of Toronto, Canada.

Below we visit a show that took place in 2015:

Dorland’s work is also contemporary in his use of very bright colors he uses for light. It becomes even more expressive when he piles on the paint in a manner that is reminiscent of Joaquin Sorolla.
