art crushes of the week.

I'm always checking out new artists online and I like to share what find interesting or inspiring. These collected images help serve as my research when I begin a new painting.

This week I've looking at the works of Johan Van Mullem and Johan Barrios. I found both artists' work through BOOOOOOOM! While I never use figuration in my own work, I'm very drawn to these dark and obscured portraits.
