Larry Duke


Larry Duke’s style of art has been greatly influenced by renowned ballet and


figure painters, Edgar Degas and Robert Heindel and more recently by


contemporary artists, Andy Braitman, Curt Butler, and Cynthia Packard. His


paintings reflect the natural beauty and emotion of the human form and his


creative use of color, texture, movement, and design. Larry started painting15


years ago in an oil painting class taught by Manny Rashet. Over the past 10


years, Larry has been instructed by both Andy Braitman and Curt Butler Studios


where he developed his unique, contemporary style that combines loose brush


work and palette knife.


Larry’s art was awarded “Best in Show” at Davidson’s Art on the Green in 2012.


In 2015 Larry’s art was featured in an emerging artist exhibition at Anne Irwin


Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta. And, in 2019 Larry’s art was selected to be in Shain


Gallery’s “Up and Coming” show. Larry’s artwork is currently on display at the


Bee Street Gallery in Dallas, TX.
