Ah, young people! Warm and realistic paintings by Michel del CampoPictolic
Italian artist Michele del Campo (Michele del Campo) can not be called a master working in the style of photorealism. Yes, his paintings are incredibly realistic, but it is obvious that they are painted in oil. The author almost does not use emotional scenes in his work, so his works are calm and seem very warm and cozy.
The young people in del Campo's paintings go about their business-socializing, studying, drinking coffee, working or playing sports. The artist's characters are always lively and enthusiastic, and are depicted in pleasant, well-lit locations, and it is interesting and pleasant to view the master's works.
It is possible that Michel del Campo is so good at showing the life of young people because the artist himself was just like that recently. He was born in 1976 in Italy, where he graduated from high school and first tried to paint in oils. Michel went to study at the Jordanstone College of Arts – the best art university in the UK, part of the University of Dundee.
After receiving his diploma as an illustrator in 2001, Michel moved to Madrid and began to study painting seriously there. The artist spent a lot of time searching for his own unique style and finally found it. Now the works of del Campo are difficult to confuse with the paintings of other modern masters of oil painting, because no one can accurately show modern teenagers, students and creative youth.
No need to wait for the artist's paintings to act – you will not see any dynamic action. Del Campo is so talented that he knows how to hold the viewer's attention not by action, but by performance. Masterfully painted canvases of the artist can be viewed for a very long time and you want to return to them again and again.
The artist has a little secret – he often begins his work... with photography. Michel always has a camera and a sketchbook in his bag. Sometimes del Campo makes a sketch with pencils, sometimes a color shot. At home, the master carefully thinks through the plot and details of the picture, creates collages on the computer, and only then takes up the canvas and paints.
If del Campo paints realistic oil paintings, then his colleague from the United States Drew Blair learned how to create spectacular works with the help of an airbrush.
