(In Person at Fascination St. Fine Art February 11th and 12th 2022! No Tax on All Purchases Outside of Colorado! Ask About Free Shipping & Free Financing.) Contemporary painter Henry Asencio is a master of painting the female form. He is naturally drawn to paint the human figure for its timeless sensitivity. His work blends classical ideas of figurative painting with a unique contemporary style, reminiscent of the Impressionists. He works with either live models or photographs, seeking to portray his female figures as strong and contemplative. He paints in a very aggressive and loose style, often painting with a palette knife. The artist states, "Painting for me is very cathartic, and is the most articulate way for me to express my passion and internal dialogues." Merging introspection and visual spectacle, Henry Asencio's personal investigations of femininity, spirituality, and abstraction possess the power to transform today's ideals of elegance and contemporary sensuality.
In 1996, Henry Asencio was sponsored by art supply company Tha ... (more)

(Price Increase January 2nd! No Tax on All Purchases Outside of Colorado! Ask About Free Shipping & Free Financing.) Michael Cheval is the world's leading contemporary artist, specializing in Absurdist paintings, drawings and portraits. In his definition, "absurdity" is an inverted side or reality, a reverse side of logic. It does not emerge from the dreams of surrealists, or the work of subconsciousness. It is a game of imagination, where all ties are carefully chosen to construct a literary plot. Any one of Cheval's paintings is a map of his journey into illusion. His work is often metaphorical and requires a sharp eye to decipher the often hidden allusions.
Born in 1966 in Kotelnikovo, a small town of southern Russia, Cheval developed passion for art in his early childhood. When his family moved to Germany in 1980, the West European culture made a great impression on the young artist. In 1986, he moved to Turkmenistan and graduated from Ashgabad school of Fine Art. Absorbing Eastern philosophy a ... (more)
