Chuck Close is another popular photo-realist. He also bases his works on photographs, but he reproduces them on a much larger scale. He also uses a wide variety of materials in his paintings such as oil, acrylic, ink, graphite, paper pulp, Polaroid prints, and wood. Because his paintings are of a much larger scale, some of them take years for him to complete. The painting displayed here is called "Frank," and it is acrylic on canvas.

Chuck Close is a famed, American photorealist artist who designs small complex pixel sized artwork that creates massive-scale portraits. I chose his design work because it is unique, original, and very creative. Chuck Close creates a design approach that not many designers/artists can achieve. It’s interesting, yet very fascinating.

I think Chuck is from another planet.
