    I love the lighting…

  • Niko

    Wo these are so sick!

  • Myraha

    Just noticed the face of the girl in the third painting who’s squinting her eyes is the same model in the top left hand corner of the last one.

    • Chris

      Oh yeah! And the guy to the right of her with the red cap is in both pieces too. Also, in the second one… I think he used the same model for several of the girls?

  • Anny

    i like how he doesn’t include any of the actual concert scenes, it makes the paintings much more human and visceral.

  • Just wow, just amazing, just wow

  • Purely Amazing!!

  • sr

    wow… these have detail!!

  • Thitima Sukwatthana

    Oh my buddha!!! they are very wonderful!!

  • S

    He appears to print a photo onto canvas and then paint on top of it. A technique that is becoming more and more common and is often misinterpreted as actual talent (I was very dissappointed to discover that Helnwein does this too, at least Richter has the decency to project the photos onto canvas and painstakingly draw them out!).

    He mentions it in this interview on his website:
