***VERY IMPORTANT:Impressionismis the style of painting that I do. I use loose brushwork and heavy layers of bright paint (also know as Impasto) to create the image before me.

Artist Jose Trujillo: a modern Monet
We found an incredible young artist on , of all places. Jose Trujillo is an impressionist painter of rare talent, a prolific painter whose landscapes, seascapes and still lifes are a dreamy, fantasy of colors. His brushwork is impeccable and we think he is to be collected now before his prices skyrocket and galleries, collectors and museums take notice, which they are sure to do. Trujillo has been called a modern Monet. His exquisite, smaller studies are created en plein aire, larger ones in his studio so they can be carefully reworked as needed. Born in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1982, his first inspirations were the elaborate architectural designs of Spanish Baroque cathedrals he saw as a young boy. At the age of nine, the Trujillo family immigrated to the United States and landed in Tucson. Jose sketched casually as a young man without any formal training. When a large print of Monet’s Water Lilies at Giverny ignited his passion to seriously paint, Trujillo began actively studying art. His days were spent observing nature and visiting museums. Today he works full time from his Tucson studio. The result is an extensive body of work from a talented original artist of quality whose vibrant colors and bold brush strokes are magical gems.
His paintings are a new form of Impressionism; a breed between abstraction and realism which seeks to go deeper into the experience of painting; where the artist–rather than merely focusing on the aesthetics to represent the landscape–tries to capture and convey the feeling he receives from it.
This approach results in a more profound experience where the landscape is captured in its core essence–with all senses and thru a multitude of emotions, and portrayed on the canvas thru means of vibrant colors expressed in a spontaneous, dramatic, and exciting manner. This is what makes a Jose Trujillo original a truly unique work of art.
Most Trujillo paintings say so much with little apparent effort. Others are carefully constructed with flowing lines and structure. Some are so subtle they appear to be unfinished. A Trujillo painting can range from $195 to $10,000. An 8×10 framed painting is usually $195; a 5 by 7 foot piece $10,000. But if you go to you can find them priced under $50.
Read what one of my most valued Trujillo art collectors has to say about her experience of owning my artwork:
Why I Collect JOSE TRUJILLO
"I feel sometimes that I’m in a race, a crazy race to gather up as many of Tucson impressionist Jose Trujillo’s prized gems of art as I can manage before I die. Before the rest of the world wakes up and realizes how gifted he is. Before the prices for his work soar far above my lower middle-class reach.
My favorite oils to collect are Jose’s still lifes—flowers fluttering at times as mere suggestions in light and shadow, explosions of color and movement, all stems and blossoms and leaves, bursting well beyond their simple gilded frames. His paintings are beautiful: moody or serene (“Early Impressions”), conveying texture, emotion (“Shady Shadows”). Since I began collecting over the past months I’ve seen his work evolve, and grow, and become even more enchanting and resplendent with time as he’s gradually finding his young artist’s voice. In my view, he is already a master at plein air expressionist landscapes conveyed in natural settings, of wistful or furious cloud formations, of brilliant kaleidoscopic sunsets. I am bewitched by his variety of purple passion pathways (I own several entitled “The Path”), his neon hillsides (“Hillside Hues,” “Brilliant Afternoon”) and his transcendent use of light on what looks like my mutabulis rose outside my front porch (“Flaming Roses,” “Garden Roses”). How many shimmering “White Roses in a Vase” (or, for that matter, “Pink Roses,” “Pink Roses I” and “Pink Roses II”) should one woman collect, I wonder? I don’t quite know, but surely next spring, or next winter, or the year after that, there might be even more gorgeous white (or pink, or whatever) roses against a mutable backdrop I must strive to possess. And judging by my impressive increasing competition at sale on , I am not alone in this mounting race.
Some weeks, I feel, Jose may be struggling for a different angle, or thinking about simpler forms or a new splash of color in eucalyptus trees seen just so from a distance, as I might be challenged by yet another potential Trujillo landscape acquisition as his style mutates. He could be transitioning into a new period, like the riverbank scene so peaceful and Seine-like in “Early Reflections.” He may try something completely new with his brushes, perhaps using less emphasis over there—just a smear of paint—or a heavier hand, or more detail here in his tiny abstract petals, or an entirely fresh color palette to explore (as in the lavender blues in “Desert Meadow,” or in “Happiness,” a riot of imagination in a huge vase, or the insane application of lemon yellows and purples in a brilliant field bursting with radiance that I recently acquired. (You get the picture.) But then what follows suddenly is a naif wave of magical forest whimsy, like dancing tree trunks reminiscent of Van Gogh or Klimt (“Blessed Morning”), and bursts of pigment so magnificent and opposing you want to cry (as in one of my absolute favorites which I gave my son Daniel at Christmas, the large “Oath to My Mother”). Jose makes it look simple but I assure you it is not. I can’t duplicate him or his sometimes pointillistic style (“Whispers of Light”). Believe me, I’ve tried. As a novice oil pastel painter myself, I’ve longed in my daydreams to fly out to Arizona to watch Jose create in oils as he communes with nature, or fly him here to Texas for a May gardening workshop on imagination to talk about and demonstrate his work. He is that good, and that inspiring. In short, I yearn to learn at the side of this young artist. I want to be his forever friend.
Reflecting on his vast offerings at sale, I marvel at what is going on inside Jose’s passionate head as he paints canvas after canvas, week after week, simple washes or complex woodlands, feverishly, it seems, in such prolific form. Without interviewing Jose on the subject, it appears that he has produced in recent years nearly 3,000 original pieces in varying dimensions, each one, I’m sure, unique and reflective of his vision. But really, there is no mystery to his exquisite madness. His careful (but most times apparently carefree and rapid) brushwork lifts what he observes in his natural settings, in his artist’s glowing and abundant heart and, beyond that, in his mind’s perceptive eye, and deposits it on canvas before him in such haste, such as in a vivid pink and orange marshland reflection (“Abstract Sunset”), or along a stand of swaying magenta tree tops, or upon a rising, flickering silvery moon (“Moonlite Inspiration”), as though he might forget in an instant what he was about to say. Jose as a painter on canvas is much like a poet searching for that precise, but dazzling, description on paper before it evaporates. After all, such is the essence of a true impressionist artist: capturing that fleeting, shining moment as it lies before you, as in Monet’s masterpieces, for all eternity.
For anyone seriously contemplating a delightful and ultimately satisfying experience in collecting original art I say, without hesitation, no matter where you may live, consider Tucson impressionist Jose Trujillo as your source. He is like the happiest of addictions. Right now, Jose’s oils are still wildly affordable to the average consumer, to one who appreciates having a little (or a lot of) beauty to behold. As addictions go, the lingering aftereffects for the user of his blossoming talents are so much more alluring, more pleasurable, more filled with imagination and wonder, and more enduring to experience than anything else. In the end, you’ll have a beautiful painting before you to admire indefinitely on your wall. I’ve taken some of mine to the office to display, and you wouldn’t believe the attention his paintings generate. I feel…and I don’t know exactly why…somehow comforted being surrounded by his handcrafted work. Most importantly, as a gift to share now or as a treasure to hold close forever, an addiction to beautiful little gems of art by any artist, any at all, or by those so lovingly created by Jose Trujillo, is a source of lasting smiles and well-being and genuine, heartfelt appreciation all around. And not, fortunately, a source of guilt. And that’s a good thing."
