  • i just saw his work in L.A.!
    the paintings are quite beautiful and intriguing.
    i love the cold, ‘wet’ quality of each portrait.

    • how big are the paintings?

      • oh wait i see the dimensions on the site – yea id like to see them in person

  • that fourth one is amazing

  • Love the last two.

  • they are great. they all look ill and sweaty…
    the first one reminds of the “tallest man on earth” singer

  • me encantaron estas!
    esa ultima esta increible

  • these have a very ethereal feel to them!

  • Degas!

  • I really love these. Especially 1, 2, and 5.

  • Brianna

    Looks a bit like vampire chic, but I do like the 3rd image.

  • I like portraits wherein I feel assured of being able to best the subject(s) in an arm-wrestle.
    Nicely done.

  • His work is really intriguing. I love that he takes such a traditional approach while addressing modern issues. Knight’s work and the role of technique: http://twurl.nl/7hwk2g

  • Samara

    The last one is gorgeous. The way he creates emotion in the art is amazing…

  • sonia

    눈빛이랑 입술표현이 매력적이군요^.^
    멋진 작품이에요.

    • ^ translation:

      Fascinating and lips, expressive eyes ^. ^
      It’s a great piece.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
