Graham Ovenden

6 Apr

Now that artist Graham Ovenden has finally been convicted of indecency against young girls, will more be made of the fact that Lord McAlpine, who has been collecting libel money from various sources, owns what most people would regard as pornographic paintings from Ovenden’s collection?

Brian Dettmer – Book Art

1 Nov

Some amazing stuff by Brian Dettmer.

Book sculpture – absolutely fantastic things done with old books. The detail is unbelievable.

Only trouble is, it’s not like paintings in that you could buy  a copy, more’s the pity. Would have to be content with viewing online or in galleries.

More of his work in the links.

Accrington Pals Painting

31 Oct

Found this on Deviant Art. It’s by a former local artist called Stephen Warnes, (now based in Cumbria) who goes by the name of Espiritoart on the site.

Obviously of interest to me being from Accrington myself.

Some more of his great paintings in the links here

Morgan Penn

27 Sep

Was doing one of my  random searches and came across some paintings by an English artist called Morgan Penn. I think they are really rather good. Especially like “The Critics”.
