Paintings by Ryan Shultz.
Ryan Shultz is brilliant. Each painting has so much character. Love it.
Wow! so full of atmosphere!! luv it
So fukn real! Lov it
reminds me of the avalon, greasy spoon dinner
all the kids after school, drinking milkshakes and smoking squares
This was the dude that was on Work of Art! Good work – it’ll be interesting to see him mature.
love me shultzy
These are wonderful! Real ‘slice of life’ somewhat noir paintings.
Very cool. Would love to see the photographs where these originated.
first thing that came to mind lookin at the 3rd one down: chris van allsburg’s polar express
What is this the Chronicles of NJ. Lovein the Detail… look at that ashtray.
Someone please tell me how long it took to complete one of those pieces.
He can paint, but the subject doesn’t really do anything for me.
1.) what caught the attention of the guy in the blue?
is he really listening?
what was their conversation about?
how long have they been there?
what are there names?
2.)why does he have that sort of haircut?
what type brand of jeans are those and how expensive were they?
why is he on the floor, is he high?
where did he get that tattoo, how much did it cost?
whats he thinking about?
3.)what is she thinking about?
is she waiting for someone?
how many smokes and drinks of coffee have she had?
what does she take in her coffee?
is she looking at some one?
4.)did he shave his mohawk that today?
is that his last smoke, how much where his smokes, how long has he been smoking, is he going to quit?
the questions are unimportant, but the painting are immortalizing to think that.
the top image reminds me of Chirs Woods’ early work. http://www.chriswoodsartist.com/id47.html

Nice technique but boring to look at IMO.
