This month, we are hosting a Draw/Paint this in Your Style Contest with Trekell Pro Team Artist Glenn Arthur.

Glenn Arthur is a California native and self-taught artist who spent his youth fervently drawing and sketching, yet did not come into painting until his late twenties when a friend forced a paintbrush into his hand and said, “You need to do this!”

His work is a delicious blend of the past and the present; heavily influenced by pinup illustrators, the Art Nouveau movement, Victorian and Rococo aesthetics and modern graphic arts. A touch of whimsy and a splash of the macabre can always be found in his work and every piece is lovingly punctuated by one of his signature hummingbirds.

Glenn currently resides in the Bay Area. His paintings and drawings can be found exhibited around the world. 

For this contest, we are asking artists far and wide to recreate Glenn’s piece, “Extra Celestial”, in their own style using any drawing or painting method or medium. Once your piece is complete, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #trekellxarthur for your chance to win one of Glenn’s Limited Edition Brush Sets

Like many artists, Glenn started exploring the world of painting with little to no knowledge of what products would be most helpful to him. Trial and error was the name of the game until he discovered Trekell’s paint brushes. He feels that the excellent quality and huge variety of our brushes gives him confidence knowing that he’ll always have the right tool for the job.

For that reason, Glenn has compiled his favorite Trekell brushes to create his new Limited Edition Brush Set. This 7-piece brush set features maroon, gold and black, short handle brushes. These synthetic Golden Taklon and Protégé brushes work with all media and come with a sticker.

Glenn feels that Trekell is an art supply company that truly cares about lifting up artists and providing them with the highest quality tools and support along their journeys. It’s been nearly a decade since he’s been using Trekell’s art supplies and he plans to use them for decades to come. We look forward to watching Glenn’s future unfold!
