Harold Braul’s cityscapes and figurative works are rich in colour, drawn from the everyday and appear to be on the edge of motion. They are beautiful in their quiet and dreamlike state; a gorgeous glimpse into urban life.

Artist’s Statement:

When people pose for a photograph their expressions tend to have a hallow quality about them; in painting I try to capture the real, unguarded essence of the image.” Regarding his group compositions he says, “My goal is to render a likeness of the scene before me while at the same time capturing the energy of the relationship between the subjects. I try to leave the audience with the idea that something has just happened or is about to happen.” Harold Braul

Locally, you can find Harold Braul’s work at Brights Gallery in the Village at Blue Mountain. Peter Bright opened his first gallery in 1989 with a purpose to show Quebec artists. His gallery has been in The Village at Blue Mountain since 2009 and exhibits the work of established Canadian artists from across the country featuring acrylics, oils, sculptures and encaustic works.

If you were to speak with Harold about the aspects that make a good painting, he would likely tell you it starts with a story, then planning and then execution.  The execution is the paint part. After many years in the business, I can say with conviction that there are lots of painters and very few artists. Harold is an artist. To me, an artist creates something and develops a unique style that delivers an image that evokes an interpretation from the viewer.  The fact that Harold’s work is sold nationally and internationally is the acid test that he has made the transition to that small group of Canadian artists that people wish to have in their collection.” Peter Bright, Owner & Curator, Brights Gallery


To experience more of Harold Braul’s work, and that of many more established Canadian artists, visit Brights Gallery in the The Village at Blue Mountain, 5-190 Jozo Weider Blvd.
