Colten Runge is a Midwestern oil painter based in South Dakota. At a young age, Colten
was drawn to art focusing his attention to graphite and ink mediums. It wouldn’t be till his last
year of high school where he picked up oil painting. After graduating, Colten would put down the
paintbrush inorder to join the workforce. It wasn’t until 2021 that he would return to nurture his
love for art.
Now with a newly revived passion for oil paint, Colten is spearheading his career with his
unique style described as "street art meets impressionism". Colten often draws inspiration from
music, nature, and personal life experiences. Travel also influences his pieces. Painting places
he has seen and places he hasn't, showcasing his perception of what they might look like.
How does Colten go from blank canvas to unique painting? It all starts with a ruff, mental
image combined with days of thought. Brush hits canvas, bringing his paintings to life using
traditional oil painting techniques! Using oils is important to him. The use of oils brings him
closer to history and draws a connection to the artists of the past. Coltens main achievement
with his works is to help others express their emotions. He hopes that others may find sanctuary
within his paintings and bring beauty, creativity, and a sense of peace.
