Stunning Paintings By Albin Veselka

Born in 1979 Albin's interest in painting came at an early age. His parents were instrumental in promoting his emerging talent.
In 2006 Albin received his BFA from Brigham Young University Idaho. He credits the knowledgeable and student oriented faculty of the BYUI art department for giving him "the tools all representational artist must have to open up the door to communicating in the visual arts". Direction was also given to Albin which helped him break into the gallery scene while he was a college student. Since then Albin has continued in developing his career receiving honors from several prestigious organizations.
Albin's career has been a continual learning experience. His growth comes natural as he seeks for excellence through education and hard work. He is constantly finding new things to appreciate in the masters both living and deceased. Some of his influences are Nicolai Fechin, Sargent, Waterhouse, Richard Schmid, Dan Gerhartz, Mike Malm, Carolyn Anderson, Gerald Griffin and Leon Parson.

Some of the honors that Albin has been granted are listed below.
-Arts for the Parks top 100 and mini 100

Albin Currently lives in Rexburg Idaho with his wife Jenee and their two children Jenna and Tvek. He teaches painting classes part time at BYU Idaho in the art department where his art education commenced. "Teaching is another way I can share the beauty of what I have learned; it fulfills me to be around like minded people in the art world. I feel blessed to continue my education with the faculty and students with whom I work. In this environment I can continually learn and develop as well as refine what I know through teaching."

"If I can enrich the lives of those who view my work in any way, I have accomplished my goal. There is something of the divine that comes through the work of one who has mastered his mode of expression and who has something good to say. Be it simple or profound, intellectual or spiritual when that message comes through and awakens something within the receiver that improves his or her life; that, I believe, is the higher purpose of art that I strive for."
