    They sort of remind me of Schiele. Really beautiful.

      very much so

      • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

        it always comes back to Schiele

  • Arseni

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen gestural qualities quite like these in this style of painting.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      yea i quite like the large blocky shapes, would definitely like to see more work

  • karolina

    I love schiele and I TOTALLY love these. well yeah, there is a certain resemblance, i have to admit it, but I still find them quite original and new.

    • karolina

      and I really like the first one, cause you can’t really see her face.

      yea i think anytime there is more loose colourful figure drawing there will be comparisons to schiele but definitely have their own quality – i like the tightness of the detail in the face that always seems to continue to one hand

    i like how he mixes those faces with large zones of pure painting in the body

  • emily

    but more fleeting and insubstantial then Schiele and they have so much more movement

  • Jessie Cacciola

    woah, so cool.

  • karolina
  • so c.

    wish i could see more i like this a lot

    Despite the obvious Schielle comparisons, this is definitley beautiful art. I hope he puts a website up soon!
