The Office by Jeff Bye 20×32″ Oil
Jeff Bye. I could look at his paintings forever. Jeff has a unique ability to portray everyday scenes with a splash of the abstract! There is so much to look at in this painting and every bit of it is so well done. Stunning!
The Pantry by Jeff Bye 17×20 Acrylic
Another favorite (and let me tell you, there were many – it was a dilemma trying to pick two!) is The Pantry. I love the angles, the strokes, colors, light, subject. Check. Check. Check. Another fabulous painting!
On Jeff’s website the paintings are separated into categories, here is a quick run down of some of the categories… be sure to check it out!
Urbanscapes: These paintings show the grittiness of city living, you can feel the flow of traffic, noise, and true living…
Airports: Jeff captures the hard-to-believe act of flying with perspectives on the ground and in the air, from in the plane and outside of it. Each is fabulous and makes you want to hop on the next flight!
Narrative: These paintings have depth and emotion.
Rail: Jeff captures one of the older and efficient forms of transportation depicting true authenticity of the surroundings.
Animals: These paintings show animals with a sense of their reality.
Read a bit about Jeff, from his website:
Jeff is originally from Long Meadow, Massachusetts. From an early age, he showed a talent for rendering still lives and landscapes. Because visual communication always interested him, he decided to pursue art after graduating high school.
Jeff entered the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for his undergraduate studies, where he discovered his passion for the human figure. Jeff spent a year in Rome, Italy through RISD’s European Honors program where he studied classical art and architecture.
After RISD, Jeff continued with his graduate studies at the New York Academy of Figurative Art. His formal education exposed him further to the works of artists like Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard and Lucian Freud, whose styles influence his work to this day. Also while in New York, he was able to focus his attention further with the figure while taking advantage of New York’s vast cultural resources.
Jeff currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He is part of galleries in NY, Boston, & Maine. His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and is part of collections all over the world.
