Artist of the moment……Rod Penner

Rod Penner was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in the year 1965. Penner paints in photo realistic manner depicting small America. The artist has awesome composition skills, many works are very small measuring 6 inches by 6 inches. I am still amazed at how much detail Penner can put into such a small work. Some works this size even have legible graffiti! Truly amazing.

For his artistic education Penner began school in Canada at Kwantlen College. The artist finished his B.F.A.  degree at O.R.U. University.

Penner paints with acrylics.

Penner is now based out of Marble, Texas. A small town with a population around 5,000.

In this clip we visit a show featuring the wonderful urbanscapes of Rod Penner that took place in 2013:

If you enjoy these great landscapes be sure and check out my post on Matthew Cornell. Cornell paints a variety of subjects well including water, but his very small urbanscapes are my favorite. Many times Cornell paints these very small works with fading light either at dusk or dawn giving the works a remarkable sense of atmosphere.
