Surreal Paintings by John Brophy
American artist John Brophy works out his compositions on the computer using Maya, ZBrush, and Photoshop and uses the result as a concept to create his intriguing paintings.
“He loves the freedom that designing in 3D allows, even though it is very technical and demanding. However, he considers digital imagery less interesting than traditional painting because it has no ‘object quality’. That’s why he thinks it is so important to execute the painting by hand in oil using the traditional techniques of the 15th century Flemish painters that he most admires, Memling, David, Van der Weyden, Van Eyck, etc. The digital study is only a launching point for the final painting.”Art Posted on October 30, 2015
