Charles Andrade paints in the colorist style that has evolved from his initial training in painting and art therapy, which he studied in England at Tobias School of Art & Therapy. With an in depth understanding of color as defined by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe,and elaborated on by the painter Liane Collot d’Herbois.

His artwork utilizes many washes of translucent color glaze that express the dynamic movement of light, color and darkness. Charles was also schooled in the art of Lazure, a unique wall treatment that creates soul-nourishing interior environments.

Andrade’s canvas work makes use of the same translucent glazes of color that characterize his Lazure wall work. He became interested in landscape painting several years ago when he took a break from the large, fluid painting format to investigate the art of chalk pastel painting while living in France. In Paris, he discovered the unique pastels made by Henri Roche and used by the great French impressionist painters, Matisse and Bonnard among others.

Charles Andrade currently lives and maintains a studio in the Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado. His paintings can be found in private collections in North America, Europe and New Zealand.

Andrade has owned and operated Lazure Custom Wall Designs for over 25 years – a mural and decorative painting business, specializing in a European glazing finish called Lazure. Charles lectures, teaches fine art classes and offers Lazure workshops worldwide.
