Impressive isn’t it? Loose and fabulous! Look. At. Those. Eyes. Don’t they just draw you in? Don’t you wonder what she’s thinking? There is a story here, what is it? It’s fabulous when a painting can keep you locked in so your eye doesn’t just wander outside of the painting. This guys work is amazing! He has wild and fabulous brush strokes… and… you should see his portraits! Unbelievable! Paul Wright is an artist from the UK who’s work is wildly popular! There is a great article to read by Darryl McCarthy – it gives you a bit of a glimpse more about the artist… an excellent read!
This is the opening image on his website (as I write this)… I encourage you to check out Paul’s work, it’s amazing!
Read a blip about Paul from his website:
After training as an Illustrator, I have spent the last 14 years developing a painterly language through which I seek to capture a vitality beyond the establishment of a mere ‘likeness’ to the subject. Whilst I appreciate the importance of the individual being recognisable, the subjects are glimpsed rather than exposed, their inner selves hinted at but ultimately inscrutable.
Though I often work on a large, potentially imposing scale, the work remains approachable through fluency of brush mark and a rich palette. The spaces the subjects inhabit are often indeterminate, providing an atmosphere that allows for ambiguity of psychological state. The subjects retain their integrity and yet a sense of intimacy is evoked
