Artist Nathan Durfee was born Bethel, Vermont on June 26, 1983 – officially making him Silver Queen Fine Art’s youngest talent. After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 Nathan Durfee started his artistic career by working as an illustrator. Over the next four years he began painting and developing his signature style that is peerless. In just a short amount of time Nathan was featured in American Art Collector and Charleston Scene magazines. He was also named the Best Visual Artist by Charleston City Paper and won the 2010 Charleston Portrait Slam. The Teatrio Cultural Association book award was also given to Nathan for his children’s book “Hello My Name is Bernard.” In 2009 Nathan devoted himself to a permanent career as a visual artist. He works in oil, acrylic and pen and ink. Most of Nathan’s works are miniature and small to medium but he also paints larger paintings upon request.
Nathan’s characters are whimsical, mysterious and share with the viewer a familiar story. We’ll often see his characters return in his future paintings, making Nathan Durfee’s work a joy to collect. Collectors will find themselves becoming attached to a character and their ongoing story. As you get to know each of them you’ll develop an ongoing friendship. You’ll see them struggle, succeed, find joy, love, fall, hurt and carry on. Nathan’s palate is a mix of soft and bold colors that come together as his brush strokes create a magical pixilation. We look forward to watching Nathan succeed over the next ten, twenty or thirty years. We believe that if you buy a piece of Nathan Durfee artwork now, you’ll be owning a master in the years to come.
