Cultural Events | LQAF Blog | LQAF News

Producing works evocative of the Old MastersDavid Bjurstrom will amaze you with what is possible using only a pencil.   Of his chosen medium, Bjurstrom says “It’s probably not the most glamorous of mediums but I find it endlessly fascinating and I’ve never felt limited by that choice,” “I am constantly challenged because there are no limits. There is a purity of subject and a power in black and white that cannot be matched.”

Bjurstrom is enjoying several noted recognitions this year.  Below is the impressive list of his most recent awards.

  • First Place, Two-dimensional Media – February, 2011 ArtFest Fort Myers, Fort Myers, Florida
  • Best of Category, Drawing & Printmaking – March, 2011 La Quinta Arts Festival
