Artist of the moment……Photographer David Maisel

 

 

David Maisel is an American photographer renown for his aerial shots of the American landscape taken from an airplane. David Maisel was born in New York City in the year 1961.

In this brief clip we view some wonderful aerial shots of mines taken by Maisel. I enjoy the abstract quality of these works.:

Maisel received a great collegiate education first earning a B.F.A.  from Princeton University. He went on to graduate studies first at Harvard before earning a M.F.A. from the California College of the Arts.

In this clip David Maisel talks about shooting imagery that dealt with death.:

The artist is based out of Sausalito, California.

Maisel is a wonderful photographer who seeks out very abstract images that visual delights in color and texture.

Artist of the moment……James Chronister

 

James Chronister was born in Helena, Montana in the year 1978. Chronister is renown or his black and white paintings that recall the pointillist artists of yesterday.

Chronister moved to California for college  and attended San Francisco’s California College for the Arts. He still remains based out of this area.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

The artist works in oils.

One reason I started this website was to focus on the different process artist’s use to create. This artist paints in the dark! In this clip we view the artist at work via a time lapse. What an interesting process. One wonders if he worked in color if he could get such impressive results!:

In this clip a brief news clip about James Chronister with some of his artwork:

Its great to see such fascinating work in black and white. I wonder if Ansel Adams might paint in the dark  since he did such great work in the dark with his photography!
