Welcome to my World through the Watercolors of
Canadian Artist, Gabriel Krekk,
and into the art of Contemporary Realism.

My world as a Canadian Watercolor Artist is created somewhere between the lens of my camera and the final brush stroke of my signature on Watercolor paper.  The study of life in its purest form is the essence of what I am trying to capture both with my camera and through my watercolor  paintings.   To move my work deeper into the realms of photorealism watercolors through mastery, experimentation and taking risks is the source of what I am trying to give back to the world through my Watercolor paintings.   My Art has evolved through every medium and for over the past twenty years I have been exclusively obsessed in the beauty of Watercolors.  It has taught me great patience… to see beyond the ordinary and to feel the greatness and beauty in all things.

The human form continues to be a focus for my subject material.  The combination of portraiture and the effect of light at play on the flesh has grown to be my passion in both photography and in my watercolor paintings.

I travel extensively throughout the United States, both for exhibitions and to seek out new subject material for my watercolor paintings.  The American west and its history has sparked a new life into my art and through this attraction, there has been a deliberate shift to moving my focus into capturing the old west in an unbiased representation of the way it really was on my new generation of Watercolors.

I trust you will enjoy your time on this website. It is my intention to provide visitors with interesting and extensive resourcing for both art collectors and for other artists in the world of watercolors as well as a forum for my own watercolor paintings.

Join with me in a story..a experience..and I will share with you the inspiration of my paintings…and then the rest of the story is totally up to you.
