Amantha Tsaros

"I aim to create forcefully joyous paintings that can't be ignored. With color, paint, and bold brushstrokes, I want to trample darkness with love. Joy. Optimism and happiness. These works are a dare to overcome the forces that repress us and to rise up and dominate with positivity."

Painter Amantha Tsaros approaches each painting as a celebration of life. She seeks out colors and shapes that express strength, happiness, or overcoming hardship. Vibrant colors combined with darker, nuanced tones evoke the sense that there is light beyond darkness.

Tsaros begins each painting with a bold and energetic brushstroke or shape that will inform the overall composition of the finished work. As she paints, Tsaros layers colors and shapes to create an energetic field of forms that work together in wild harmony. She employs a variety of painting tools, but still loves using soft brushes and flowing acrylic paint.

Amantha Tsaros holds a BFA and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She has also studied at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA.
