About Earl Klatzel:

Earl was born 1957 in Calgary, AB where he currently resides today.

After attending the Alberta College of Art in 1993, and years of dedicated focus in his studio, Earl has created a portfolio that captivates his musical interests and influences of life in the 20th century. His straightforward look at life is characterized in the style, colours, and precision of his artwork. The figure has always been the dominant drive in his portfolio, but expands into a visual history from where the portraits evolved.

Black music from the deep South is the main theme to Earl's portfolio, covering: Blues & Jazz early History, and portraits of the musicians who created the music over the ages. His knowledge comes from years of collecting and listening to the blues of the early days, and having the passion and ability to project the atmosphere and sounds of those times into each work of art, thus bringing colour and life to an era that was only recorded in black & white photography.

Earl's technique with combining acrylic and oil mediums give each painting a unique quality. His re-defined approach to traditional painting methods allows him the versatility to achieve a greater visual depth and a more realistic appearance to his paintings. His eye for detail and colour authenticity in researching images from the past produces an accurate pictorial documentation of a music that was created from everyday life.
