I just love the bright portraits of the American artist Tommy Mitchell. There is a huge amount of work on each piece and believe it or not, he uses acrylics for the colourful parts and ballpoint pens for the rest!
In the gallery you can also find some work in progress pics of the artist working on these paintings, so you can see how massive some of these portraits are. You can also find him on Instagram.
The American artist Kelly Reemtsen creates wonderful pop paintings that face the women’s role in contemporary society.
This is what it’s behind her creative project:
Strikingly feminine at first glance, with their bodies adorned in fashionable designer dresses and runway-worthy accessories, Reemtsen’s women are not simply pinup girls or arm candy. Rather, the women, while dressed to the nines, undertake household, and often, traditionally masculine tasks. The objects they hold, from dishrags to wrenches to chainsaws, range from domestic to menacing, and yet, as a body of work, address the question of the proper role of the contemporary woman. Reemtsen’s answer to that is quite simple – anything! Anonymous torsos, the women remain beautiful representations of the feminine with which anyone can identify.
