Nigel Cox is an Irish born, London based artist whose oil on canvas paintings, in his own words – ‘Focus on the individual, removing them from usually crowded urban scenes and placing them in centre stage.  Surprising how much confidence they have when removed from the crowd.’  I think I understand exactly what he means – the figures in each painting seem to come to life and shine more brightly with the absence of a backdrop, almost as if they were performing…

He describes his work, which he refers to as photorealistic minimalism, and his background (including his travels around the world with the Transglobe Expedition) in more detail here, and his blog is here.

Ralph Goings is a realist painter based in California – he is recognised as one of the original members of the Hyper-Realist or Photo-Realist group of the late 1960’s.  His painstakingly accurate work spans four decades, and one of the things I like most about his paintings is that the subject matter changes little over the decades, showing that some things remain timeless and comfortably familiar.

 

I’ve just discovered the wonderful art of Krista Huot, a 28 year old artist based in Montreal.  These are just a few of her enchanting paintings – see more on her Flickr.

If, like me, you have a weakness for all things pixellated – Mike Edwards’ excellent DIY Art website has a free online tool that you can use to convert your photos into a numbered grid for do it yourself pixel paintings.  You can buy a kit with everything you need to get started, or just download your free grid and  use your own paints.

Check out the magical photorealistic art of Missouri born artist Glennray Tutor.  His nostalgic paintings are filled with marbles, fireworks, comic books and toys from the mid 20th century, and seem to glow with colour and light.
