Spirit of Mattie
Spar Street is an award-winning painter and sculptor. He specializes in painting large canvases in mixed media, with a high emphasis on sensuality, color, and movement. Before becoming an artist, Street was a skier and entrepreneur. He is best known for his work with the Nobel Foundation and the United Nations.
Street combines abstraction, impressionism, and realism into his works on canvas. His multimedia works notably evoke feelings of energy, warmth, sensuality, power, and beauty, and revolve around mostly spiritual themes. Street also employs heavy layering in many of his abstract paintings. Maui art critic Paul Janes-Brown has this to say about Street’s work: “You have to actually come and see the work to appreciate how great an artist this man is…The excitement of his work is extraordinary. The texture of the work transforms it to another place completely.”
