If you are in South Tahoe, make sure you stop in to Benko Art Gallery to check out Scott's latest works on display here. His work is not only beautiful, it's fun! Whether it's his immense, three-dimen...sional, interactive pieces that make you feel like you are floating in the layers of paint themselves, or the smaller, abstract works that bring you to that centered and peaceful place inside, Scott creates the kind of art that you just have to tell your friends about. And if that isn't enough, the energy and focus you see in his work is also a reflection of the Artist himself. Meeting Scott really reaffirms why his work is such a joy to be around. He is an enthusiastic builder of community and has been key to the resurgence of South Tahoe's art scene. Thank you, Scott, for all that you do! See More

Scott's amazing art is heart-filled and deep with meaning and beauty! When I look at one of his pieces it's like looking at nature, and absorbing the colors and textures of all the incredible things w...e see on this earth. His ranges of color and expression are unique and diverse. I think the best thing about Scott is that he does truly paint from his heart, and that he is a wonderful soulful, loving human! Well Done Scott, with using the gifts God has given you to bless others on this planet! See More

I am so fortunate to have come across Scott Forrests work. First off he is Such a perfectionist, outgoing and deep personality, so incredibly intelligent and kind it's no wonder that his works of art ...are incrediable and unique, deep in composition, uniqueness and in rich color. I love bringing friends and loved ones to his shows, as we stare in amazement of his work not seen before in the art world, the techniques that he uses. Last year Scott sold out 4 different shows! Just wonderful to see his many many many years as a unique artist escalate to new heigts with every piece he produces. See More

Scott is very detail oriented and really puts effort into his pieces. You can see the quality in all art parts. they all have genuine distinction but blend well together on the collection pieces. Colo...r blends and selection look super cool and fit the titles very well.

That said plus Scott's great personality and style makes it all come together nicely. So take a look and find a piece that works for you from those cool solid color sets to the fun colorful pieces. Have a great one and enjoy your purchase.

When I view them I go on an exquisite journey where the inner and outer realms merge into a land of unrestrained imaginatio...n. I am transported between the worlds and in them all at the same time, that's magical, which is exactly what Scott's paintings are!

As a fine art dealer and consultant, I chose to work with only a handful of select artists, and have been representing Scott Forrest for several years in the Los Angeles market. Not only is he very cr...eative, dedicated, and talented, he is also a super nice guy and a pleasure to work with. When in Tahoe, make sure you look him up, and stay tuned for a show in LA coming this spring! See More

Scott's artwork is joyfully immersive, with deep textures and a commanding use of bold colors that brighten the room well beyond their perimeters. His work is big and confident, but not overwhelming, ...while being thought-provoking and inspirational. I own two beautiful pieces - Orange Crush and Lava - which continue to thrill the eye and stir the heart. I look forward to acquiring more of Scott's work in the future. See More

It is refreshing to come across a self-made artist who's creative productions I admire as much as the artist. A very genuine guy who has only scratched the surface of his talent. Scott Forrest may jus...t have your next favorite piece waiting for you to discover and hang in your home. See More

Scott Forrest's art commands the eye, it is very "right now" in its immediate appeal to sense, emotion, and intellect. The boldness of it is never jarring, always inviting. As someone who has Scott ...Forrest's work hanging in my home, I find it is always new, always inspiring. See More

I used to think that Abstract Art required very little talent; Until I learned about the greats that broke the rules & blazed the trails.
The commitment to the canvas can be unforgiving & relentles...s.
Scott's perseverance & bold pursuit of his vision on a one dimensional canvas to blast forth a multitude of three demential color's & textures exudes the artist soul.
Scott Forrest has given me a new found appreciation of the medium we call abstract art.

I am deeply impressed by Scott Forrest's art. I have "Rapture" hanging in my living room it is so multi dimensional I could stand and look at it all day. My granddaughter recently had me view the piec...e from her height. Incredible how "Rapture" continues to evolve. Love the site. Keep me in the loop. See More

Infinite Tahoe is my Scott Forrest original. It was love at first sight. It was even more special because at the time, Scotts studio was the floor above my office and I heard the joy and excitement wh...ile he created my painting. I love having it in my office. It brings a smile to my face everyday. See More

The art of Scott Forrest has graced the pages of Rolling Stone, Newsweek and Spin Magazine. His work is part of the permanent collection at The Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
Each monumental painting from the Forrest Collection takes on its own unique voice, some rhythmic and textural, drawing from inspiration by De Kooning and Motherwell, with others featuring Forrest’s signature bold and sweeping brush strokes as ...seen in ancient Japanese Ink Painting. Every painting features an unexpected visceral and multi-dimensional visual experience for the viewer in 3D.
“I love the immediate satisfaction of the ‘One-Brush’ style, trusting that my initial thought will swipe the color just as I intended. It’s so pure and honest, as if nature encompassed me for that one stroke.”
