Artist of the moment… Alessandro Raho

 

 

This artist was born in 1970 in the Bahamas. He attended both Croydon and Goldsmith College. The artist had a big breakthough in 2004 as he was commissioned by the national portrait gallery in London to paint actress Dame Judy Dench. He painted her in a way that thrilled and flattered her. The artist paints in an old fashioned manner with traditional paints and techniques.

 

Many of the artists portraits are closeups done with a plain white background. I really enjoy the artists landscapes of his country of birth.  They make one want to get to the beach as quick as possible.

The clip below is a near 6 minute time lapse of the artist working on a piece that took around 3 months to finish.

 

 

keep learning!
