As one of the many who are transfixed by the technical ability and attention to detailed displayed by those who earn their crust from photo realistic art, It was only a matter of time before I stumbled upon the incredible work of Nathan Walsh.
Realist painter Nathan Walsh, originally from the UK now living in New York where he has spent the past 12 years painting the intricate details of cities such as New York, Paris and Barcelona.
The sense of realism is partly created by Nathan’s incredible use of geometry, which involves the artist sometimes sketching and photographing more than 100 images of a location before committing to the canvas.
Nathan’s work has been exhibited in Zurich, London and New York where he deals exclusively with the Bernarducci Meisel Gallery. Louis K. Meisel, the part owner of the gallery, coined the term ‘Photorealism’ in 1969.
