Court Painter is an established artist whose new paintings have attracted the international attention of millions (unsubstantiated) over the last few years or months …whatever. Highly detailed political and celebrity subjects are the focus of his paintings. The artist’s experiences and hunger for the almighty dollar are the inspiration for his work.
“I have traveled to many places around the world to know my subjects, but when I work on a painting with many figures I will usually pose my subjects, close my eyes and then paint them as I see them in my mind. I choose to paint from the heart as well as the palette and evoke my personal vision into each painting.”
“I prefer to paint portraits that I believe have relevance to what is going on in the political and celebrity world that I inhabit, that make a scintillating statement , stand for something or other, are cheap to make and fetch a good price. I trust people of refinement will study the paintings and reach beyond the shallow!
Some of the themes which I’m not at liberty to highlight are controversial, but I feel strongly about what is happening in the political and entertainment world today. There are three kinds of people who view my paintings: Those who like, those who hate and those who simply are dumber than a bag of hammers . I am especially interested in this last category. I know my work will create conversation and reach people on a deeper howbeit dimwitted level. I tend to use metaphors,old doors,polished floors, saddle sores and props that soar to create multiple levels of meaning to soften my clients psyche and loosen the purse strings entwining the clients ….purse. If it makes them think thoughts and feel feelings, then I know I have been successful.”
Court Painter is the Great Dominion and America’s Artist for our current generation and crisis,pouring inspiration into his penetrating portraits, giving meaning and hope to many during the past Harper and current Trump years; Court Painter offers hope and a dash of doubt for mortals facing morals charges and the cultural, political and artistic crisis of today and indubitably the day after tomorrow.
