Krüger’s ‘New Pop Art’ style is hugely popular, attracting large numbers of people to his exhibitions wherever he goes. Why is his work so popular? Aside from the fact that he is often using iconic celebrities as subject matter, I believe there is a special way in which he captures a special part of s person’s personality within his works. He slightly exaggerates certain features like a caricature artist would, but somehow there is a sincerity that remains. Visit his website here.
Phillip Butah is a personal friend of ours here at the lounge. Although we have examined his work time and time again, it never ceases to impress us. His ultra realistic portraits present the viewer with not only an honest study of the subject but also a deeper connection with them. Phillip tends to punch right through the barriers and show what lies beneath, this is truly amazing when coupled with his ability to make the persons character feel larger than life. Phillip has drawn many famous individuals to date including, Prince Charles, Ashley Walters, Linford Cristie and his latest works with Ed Sheeran. To see more, head over to his website.
