Art Brokerage: Harold Kraus American Artist: Educated at the University of Wisconsin, the American Floral Art School in Chicago and Lipscomb University in Nashville, Harold Kraus brings a unique diversity of training, life experience and passion to his work. A self-described "colorist," his style exudes a fascination with the properties and power of color. After years of work as a florist, designer and artist, Kraus has observed that, "Many people lead color-starved lives. I imagine they are intimidated and unsure of how much is too much, and surround themselves with neutral and muted earth tones just to play it safe." Kraus paintings march squarely into the color void with vivid light and deep emotion. Fans and collectors of Kraus art often remark that his colors make an entire room "sing" where before it was silent. Listings wanted.
