About Bernie Taupin:
In the early 1990s, Bernie Taupin broke into the art scene with his paintings, which were inspired by groundbreaking Abstract Expressionists such as Hans Hoffman, Franz Kline, Anselm Kiefer and Robert Rauschenberg.
Taupin says, âAs in any creative field, we begin by mimicking work we like and follow the path that ultimately leads to finding our own vision, a style that we consider original and unique in its own beliefs and keep its own merits. “
By 2016, Taupin’s works became sculptural constructions that were reused with objects he found and materials and artifacts such as paper, wax, wire, wood, cardboard, cloth, bubble wrap, and resin.
âThe imagination is the most powerful tool artists have to conjure up beautiful distractions for the eyes and ears. My dimensional work is simply the visual extension of what I’ve created with words all my life, âsays Taupin.
