Trevar Peterson was born in Oklahoma City. He received an AA in Technical Communications with an option in Illustration/Multimedia at OSU OKC. He has participated in the Refreshing the Palette event to benefit OVAC for the past 7 years. He is a recognized pumpkin carver and has appeared on local news in special interest pieces to showcase his talent. He has created art in a variety of forms including sculpture, lenticular design, hand drawn and digital illustration. He enjoys using new mediums and sees his art as having an ever evolving personality.
I have a hard time pinpointing my specific artistic style, however, writing is not it. I prefer making visual art over the written word, and my medium changes all the time. What I like about this project is that it invites the viewer to take a closer look at the depth of the minimal colors and shapes, but then allows them to step back and see a larger picture. To achieve this effect I have used layers of epoxy resin to encapsulate color swatches set in a pattern to produce an image that can be seen as abstract when viewed up close, and with more definition when viewed from a distance.
