Art Brokerage: Blu Rivard American Artist: If art reflects life, then Blu Rivard's Undersea Lifescapes, Exotic Wildlife, Landscapes, and Cultural Scenes are serene monuments to one man's self-expression. Blu, a son of artistic parents, is a creative talent who harnesses his own undersea adventures as an avid scuba diver and environmental preservationist to dive and push artistic boundaries. Blu bases his paintings on extensive research he does himself. Blu is considered to be a restless, ambitious talent and the interplay of light, shadow, color and texture in his hypnotic paintings reflects that spirit. His art is just one expression of his commitment to the preservation of nature. His active participation in these important alliances fosters the sensitivity of the environment and culture that is captured in every one of his works. Blu's artwork is recognized worldwide, with exhibitions by international galleries as well as private and corporate collectors. The artist gives a portion of his proceeds to numerous cultural, environmental and wildlife preservation efforts.
