Ritums Ivanovs

2 03 2015

Ritums Ivanovs is a Latvian painter who uses precise and hyperrealist depictions of reality and bright polychromatism typical of Op Art. Working in his unique linear technique, he paints portraits and nudes on exceptionally  large-scale canvasses (up to 145 x 250 cm). Mr. Ivanovs most often uses a photo as a basis, yet sketches and paints his works completely freehand. The main subjects of Ritums Ivanovs’ works involve human emotional moods, in both dramatic and subtle styles. His images contain real people from his life, photographic images from printed material – from art history books or from show business advertisements (Andy Worhol,Damien Hirst), and even from erotic magazines.

Not only has Richard Avedon photographed many famous people. But he has also taken some very odd pictures. All wonderful. A lot of fun and joy in his pics.

I love this whole line of paintings dealing with people at work. And Bowman’s catches those moments so successfully.

Franz Xavier Winterhalter

Franz Xaver Winterhalter was a German painter and lithographer, known for his portraits of royalty in the mid-nineteenth century. His name has become associated with fashionable court portraiture.

These are the selfies of the 19th century. Vanity is not a modern invention.

I love this guy’s work. Andrew Mamo. It’s as if you superimposed the fantastic upon ambiance. I hear a siren. Which reminds me of the story. Of a friend of mine who was taken away by the police in handcuffs. And kept asking them if he could show them a card trick.
