Ukama Gallery is pleased to introduce Canadian Landscape Artist Joel Mara. Joel's paintings capture the serene beauty and majesty of Canada's iconic wild places. Painted in a unique style, with a distinctive colour palette, his work radiates tranquility. Colour is a significant key to Joel's style. Mixing colours is a time consuming process as he continuously searches for new shades. His application is thick and textured: yielding beautifully subtle images with animated surfaces.
