Defining Spontaneous Realism

If one has the opportunity or chance to watch the painter while he is in the act of creating his work, and see – or better, experience – the immediacy, vigor and enthusiasm with which Voka creates his paintings, then this simple expression, spontaneous realism, conveys a defining emotion.

Spontaneous realism is abstract art created from a realistic image using various color schemes, brush strokes and other additives that are not present in the original realistic image.  In other words, the image is re-created in a less detailed way using an un-natural color scheme.
