These Are Not Photographs

Photorealistic painter Steve Mills sold his first painting at the age of 11 and has been known to sell entire shows in about ten minutes.  After seeing the work of Richard Estes at a show in Boston, Photorealism became his passion. Today his interests are somewhat varied though his main focus is on the extraordinarily-ordinary.

A Daily Dose Of Sublime

On his Tumblr he calls his illustrations “A paradoxical distillation of the word and the image as directed by the filters of randomness”

Juan Doe is an endangered painter. The last of a dying breed, he personifies pure art. With unheralded hand skills and hellacious wit, Juan Doe redefines the parameters of bizarre genius and secular thug. Born and raised in New York City, Juan Doe has been evolving the language of interdisciplinary art and design since the late 1970’s.  He is an artist who strains the boundary between painting, propaganda, polemics, and philosophical discourse in art. He encapsulated a new age aesthetic through his command of the graphic process but with the masterful execution of a painter. His images are non-negotiable, they cannot be interpreted or postponed; they exist now, for the oxygen of the viewers eyes.  His works stand as testament to this artist’s brash and unwavering attempts to demand attention through an acrylic vehicle of contradiction – a showcase of the beauty and horror in contemporary art. Doe will not allow the viewer to arrive in the future with out the past. His work characterizes a fusion of form, a behavior, dictating dignity and morality through a visual medium synonymous with contemporary culture

A reipient in 2007 of an individual grant in visual arts from the Bronx Council of the Arts, he is repersented in the Bronx Museum (New York).

French Illustrator/Artist’s Photorealistic Paintings

Lassana S is a French Artist/Illustrator who mainly works with drawings, and paintings in a photorealistic style.  He says “When I draw or paint my paintings are realistic, it is both a battle of reproduction and a self-test. I’m like a kid, the desire to say that I too can do the same … or better. This is only a game sheet and I don’t impose constraints on myself except to be forced to respect the reality sometimes. I need to copy, copy, emulate, surpass… and in the end I produce something spectacular because only the imitation of reality as others have done, except that I bring my technique.  I’m interested in urban areas, graffiti, and  I often use raw materials: crayons, markers, paint, cutter, scotch tape…” (Translated from French text)

 

Shintaro Ohata’s Stunning 2-D and 3-D World

Shintaro Ohata was born in 1975 in 1975 in Hiroshima, Japan and is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy days and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of a 2-D and 3-D world. He says that it all started from when he wondered “I could bring the atmosphere or dynamism of my paintings with a more different way if I place sculptures in front of paintings”. Many viewers tend to assume that there is a light source set into his work itself because of the strong expression of lights in his sculpture.

Secret Identity – Superheroes in a Bag

After graduating in Fine Art from Camberwell in 1989 Simon Monk lectured in Art History at various colleges in and around London, as well as writing on art and architecture. Since returning to painting five years ago he has exhibited in open exhibitions such as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Discerning Eye as well as various group shows and international art fairs. H has recently been selected to exhibit in East Wing Ten at the Courtauld Institute. He now works full time in his studio in Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

His recent paintings of objects in bags initially arose from an interest in scale and representation; despite being depicted exactly life size, the subjects themselves present a dislocation of scale characteristic of toys and models, ranging from enlarged insects to radically miniaturised dinosaurs. The paintings themselves are on a domestic scale; they represent illusory objects on a fictional wall and are designed to inhabit a real wall in a domestic environment.

The subjects are bagged and centrally placed on a pegboard or tongue and groove background in an attempt to raise questions about the context in which they are depicted: are they presented for sale; for anthropological perusal; do they offer a glimpse of the odd taxonomies of an unknown collector or the prized booty of an eccentric shopper?

Despite the bag paintings constituting the core of my recent practice, other series of paintings are informed by a consistent but evolving set of interests and concerns: the use of ephemera and overlooked objects; the exploration of illusion and the inescapably fictional nature of images; the uneasy relationship between the exotic and the banal; whether it is possible to view the past without nostalgia.

Each painting is slowly and gradually built up from many thin, translucent layers of paint over a number of months. The subjects are painted directly from life rather than photographs in an attempt to represent the subjects with simple clarity and truthful illusion.
