2017 Spotlight Artist Dwight Baird
DWIGHT BAIRD – S413
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Dwight Baird has been painting for over 35 years, evolving from watercolors to acrylics. Today, he paints in a contemporary realism style, combining large, big-brush impressionist strokes and subtle squares juxtaposed with highly defined focal points. His subjects are in constant evolution as he discovers new places and techniques. Baird’s most recent series of works—not just paintings, but also a collection of historical documents—depict the daily struggle in Cuba, a country anchored in the past yet on the verge of dramatic change.
