Vincent Fantauzzo

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Vincent Fantauzzo has some amazing work on his site, demonstrating his incredible ability to create mood through colour and lighting.

Souther Salazar

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Souther Salazar’s work would suggest that he is having more fun making art than should be allowed. Of course, that also means that looking at his work is a great deal of fun, so you won’t find me complaining.

(OK, I’m a liar, I don’t actually think there is such a thing as having too much fun making art)

Aaron Smith

Friday, September 26th, 2008

There are moments when looking at Aaron Smith’s paintings that it becomes hard to believe that you couldn’t reach into the canvas and feel the three dimensional objects within.  Great work.

Marcus Bowcott

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

Marcus Bowcott is a man who likes to explore many mediums.  However, since this is PaintBlog, I’m only going to mention his incredible series of paintings depicting man-made structures imposing themselves on natural landscapes.   You’ll just have to go to the site yourself if you want to find out about his sculptures and installations.

Denis Ichitovkin

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Do you enjoy spectacularly observed studies of modern life painted in a manner that calls upon old world technique? (a silly question, I know) If so, I recommend you spend some time here admiring the work of Denis Ichitovkin.  Enough said.

Greg Swales

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

While Greg Swales is primarily a photographer, and a very good one at that, I really enjoy when he puts  down his lens and picks up a brush.  Luckily, his painting work is on his portfolio site along with his photography, so you can enjoy both!

Robert Deyber

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

If you like a little humour with your art, may I recommend the work of Robert Deyber.  While his paintings stand on their own as incredible imagery, his titles serve to elevate pun to high art.  I’ll leave you to guess at the title of this one.

Tristram Lansdowne

Friday, September 19th, 2008

I’ve always been drawn to urban areas as subject matter, so it’s no surprise that Tristram Lansdowne’s watercolours are knocking me on my butt.  His paintings focus on the decaying remnants of urban landscapes long ignored, and the results are amazing.

Lorne Winters

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

I’m loving the “Hay Wheels” series Lorne Winters has up on his site.  Great work!

Kendall Karam

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Kendall Karam has an eclectic mix of paintings on her site, but the energy of her work is very consistent.  I particularly like the way her style manifests itself in the portrait work.
