Cole Norton

Cole Norton is a Milwaukee born artist who currently lives and works in Japan. His style is a combination of Western Impressionism and Chinese and Japanese brush and ink wash painting. He is apprentice of Hakuro, a Chinese born Master ink wash painter, currently living in Tokyo. Cole’s primary focus is on the figure, a subject which he taught at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.

 

His work revolves around the concepts of Zen, and the broad range of qualities we all harbor; light and dark, courage and fear, strength and weakness. Ever present in the work is a focus on the life forces of ourselves and of the world. By combining energetic brush work with a broad palette he creates unique and emotive images.
