Artem Krepkij I

I am teaching life drawing and basic drawing skills at this time of year and so my eye is being tempted by drawings. 

Artem Krepkij's drawings are difficult to view in some ways due to their extreme perspective, twisting and contorting figures into exaggerated forms to emphasize the emotion and drama of situations. His works remind me of those early works of Vincent Van Gogh where the hands are as expressive and animated as the faces and there is a monotone hardship that prevails through all.

  1. I am often drawn to art-work that reveals as much about the artist as the subject they are capturing. These are really expressive!
