Micallef’s Studio

What an expressive and lavish use of paint. As part of his Lauded Head Series, Antony Micallef’s headpieces bear a haunting essence, that is acheived through swift applications of charcoal, owing to, just as swift eliminations of the medium. His decision to create some of these sketches in strict monochrome, supplies an exacting contrast to his typically colorful paintings. Whether Micallef paints black, white, powder pink, or bright blue, his works are all gold to me.

20th Century artist Euan Uglow’s figurative paintings contain a quiet certainty. With his use of mathematical planes and structured paint applications, his work is not only seductive to the eye, but possibly, unexampled. Check out more insight to his process here.

After watching a video of Alberto Giacometti painting in his studio, I became instantly inspired to start sketching on my new 4’x 4′ canvas. It is refreshing to be more expressive when working on a preliminary drawing, and this larger format is the ideal way to get started.
