Blog / 2018 / Painting in a Traditional Realist Style Is Like Doing a Cover Song.

February 26, 2018

Cover songs—of both the audio and visual varieties—are a little like hyperrealism or fan art and a lot like celebrity portraiture, and I don’t love any of those kinds of art. If you want to know more about how all art has a nostalgia/imitation element to it, I recommend my book about copyright.

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
