Hyper-realistic Oil Paintings by Francois Chartier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Realism has always been of tremendous interest to Montreal-based artist Francois Chartier. While his paintings are realistic, his 'goal is to create, through layering of mediums and the play of the brush, the illusion of depth and sense of presence beyond what is found in photographs."

We came across these fun and creative paintings on glassware by Rui Gesicht of faces that look like they are trapped inside. We've been enjoying staring at the bizarre, distorted faces all morning and wishing there were more of them...

Cheery Paintings by Lampu Kansanoh

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 23, 2013
We are also enjoying the bright and cheery paintings of Thai artist Lampu Kansanoh this morning. "No one else captures the happy-go-lucky nature of the Thai quite like her. In her works the carefree and joyful expression of her characters are exuberantly intensified by their exaggerated features: their melon-sized heads, engorged cheeks and exposed teeth."

Brian Adam Douglas' Cut Paper Painting

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 16, 2013
Brian Adam Douglas (aka ELBOW-TOE) uses a unique cut paper and collage technique he calls 'paper painting.' Painting individual parts of paper, he carefully cuts them and sticks them to a wooden panel to create the final painting-like composition. "Forgoing the relative ease and fluidly of the brush stroke, the artist methodically builds his compositions through shards of color incised from sheets of paper..."

Oil Paintings of Carpets by Antonio Santin

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013
Spanish artist Antonio Santin's collection paintings of human bodies (we assume) hidden under ornate tapestries are rather haunting. His process involves projecting a photograph onto the wall and manipulating the size and proportion as he paints. He is currently on exhibit at Marc Straus Gallery in NYC.

Paintings by Linnea Strid

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
You've seen the work of Linnea Strid on our site before, her hyper realist style is well suited to her intimate subject matter. She is able to capture 'the figurative with a very heightened sensibility,' emphasizing the details and 'textures that make her work uncannily amplified.'

The Work of David Marc Grant

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
David Marc Grant, a 3rd generation San Francisco native, is a very rare bird indeed. He paints candy colored dystopian landscapes. Growing up in the Fog City in the 80s, he was happily exposed to genres of utopian science fiction and fantasy, the kind that inspired extreme spectacle and cautionary tales of environmental disaster. A student of the wild school of dichotomies, and of the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute, Grant’s humor and history influence his interest in fictitious world building...
