This is by far the most impressive watercolor artwork that I’ve seen. The artist is nothing but a genius and a living legend. I never have seen or experienced his kind of watercolour on paper which is full of life, energy, depth, narrative and humour in some cases. It is impossible to fully put down feelings into words. Votsmush’s grip on the medium, mood, subject and overall context in every single piece is mesmerising making you feel as if it is not painted on paper with a paint brush but with a magical wand.
Alex Votsmush lives partly in Russia and partly in Ukraine. I wanted to share more here about him but due to the language barrier I had to confine myself to what I could get from him.
I wasn’t able to fit Votsmush’s work into one post therefore covering it into three separate posts so keep watching the space.
These incredibly ultra-photorealistic paintings are an intimate blend of fantasy and reality, blurring the line between life and art. Eyes, torn paper, ripped photographs, frames and engaging expressions, Josh Suda’s work is inviting with everlasting impressions.
He currently works in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, USA and is one of the founding members of The Broad Street Studio, an artist group dedicated to showcasing and promoting realism with tooth.
