    Kruger is the reason I took caricatures seriously. I've loved his work for years

    You can see it, right? That's real enough for me.

    Some of the art (below the carcitures) doesn't look incredibley.... good... Is it like a student show?

    And- I always thought that Acryllics were pretty much fast drying oils. (pr behaved like them). I'm not saying it's not amazing, but people blend like that with acryllics all the time.

    And also; As a side note.

    we all know illustrators arent real artists.

    personally im not a big fan of traditional caricatures but i would say this guy is an incredible technical and expressional all-rounder and has some pretty innovative pieces.
    i really love the pieces with the sort of bill sienkiewicz colours and roughness to them.

    you have to look at these in person.. he uses all kinds of techniques, airbrushing, scumbling, drybrushing, glazing, toothbrush spraying, etc. but on the ones in canvas you can see he uses the texture of the canvas a lot to just scumble the paint over, they are so huge that when they shrink em to print size they look smoothly painted, well some of them

    i first stumbled onto his art about 5 years ago, at gallery morpheus in LA. they had piles of his paintings in there. i was blown away by his technical facility. his draughtsmanship and ability to capture likeness is rediculous. pixeldragoon, your comments show your age and lack of experience. and to look down on an artist of kruger's abilities because he doesnt do classically realistic couch paintings is very very closed minded. be careful about swearing off art that doesnt immediately appeal to you. there is much to be learned in his stuff. just because he's not copying casts and painting everything bathed in golden light doesnt make him any less valid. you're still young, if i can impart any advice to you it would be to be open to all styles of art. and if people are gushing about someone's work and you dont understand why, you can probably learn something by looking at it.-c36

    To be fair to Pixel, I think he was referring to some of the stuff on the rest of the page, below the Kruger show. You know, the Real Art

    But about this he couldn't be more wrong if his name were Wrongy W. Wrongerson.

    Comments like these irritate the shit out of me. I don't know where some people have their brains.


    Oh, and I saw the show this morning on my way to work. It is amazingly amazing.

    whoa those are ridiculous! man I had NO idea that acrylics could be used to that extent! don't get me wrong, I always thought acrylics (or any medium really) can make amazing stuff if in the hands of someone who knows how to use em but jeez; can't say I've seen things like that done in something other than oil. either way those are absolutely amazing, and the ones on his site are just as crazy, wish I could see them in real life

    I think the majority of his work is a mixture of brush work and airbrush. I remember him being featured in Airbrush Action alot back in the day. Most of the work featured is pretty old but by no means does it lessen the impact. Absolutely outstanding craftsmanship.

    sure he uses toothbrush spatter a lot, and i mean a lot, but when you see them in person, there are a lot of smooth transitions you can only get in airbrush.. unless he's using a tiny tiny tiny toothbrush?
