"Art is like breathing, you can't live without it"
Clyde J. Kell created and operated an internet radio station for over 18 years, playing nostalgic radio plays. Clyde has always been creative and a visual artist. With encouragement from his adult daughters, Clyde has taken his art to a professional level, working in a representational style with a tight illustrative hand, water color, pen and ink and acrylic paints.
Clyde creates botanical works, renderings of ancient historical monuments, foreign landscapes, seascapes, and a Pulp Radio Art series inspired by those wonderful dramatic plays of radio’s golden past. Clyde’s religious art series expresses the chiaroscuro technique of Caravaggio.
Clyde's work is an expression of various adventures while traveling around the world during service in the United States Navy. Past illustrators influence Clyde’s creative process, especially James Montgomery Flagg.
