This amazing artist, born in 1916, had his first gallery showing at the tender age of thirteen in France. This 1929 exhibition was only to be the first in a lifetime of regular appearances and showings, which established him as one of the premier artists of the twentieth century. Known, in fact, as the artist of the twenty first century, he demonstrated an artistic eye, which saw far beyond that of most of his contemporaries.
In spite of this commitment to color and concepts, which exhibit a beauty rarely or never seen on Earth, Eyvind EarleTM also applied his considerable talents to mainstream culture.
After receiving both an Academy Award and a Canne Film Festival Award for his animated short, Toot, Whistle, Plunk, he was approached by Disney to contribute to their upcoming projects.
Over the next few years, Earle painted backgrounds for such Disney masterpieces as Sleeping Beauty, Paul Bunyon, and The Lady and The Tramp. Mere mention of these films conjures up childhood memories of fabulous worlds where animals can speak, magic can transform people and love conquers all problems. In this way, Earle's artistic genius is shared by all of American pop culture and his influence touches even the youths and adults of other countries.
In addition to his work with Disney, Eyvind EarleTM has done seminal work in painting with oils and the making of serigraphs. Earle's work has been so well known and respected that he has taken it on successful exhibitions throughout the world.
