The extraordinary work of Chuck Close ... No one can match it in complexity and sheer size. Still producing his extraordinary works in spite of severe paralysis, his life is a inspiration.

After Decades Of Pixel Painting, Chuck Close Goes Truly Digital

This is a Chuck Close Self-Portrait made in 2010. I like this because of the fragmented pieces and colors he creates to make on big self portrait from a distance.

Project #2 Me, Myself and I Chuck Close Shows how artist can represent identity in different ways and mediums. He has a unique style in showing identity.


“Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightening to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” ― Chuck Close

Chuck Close - I really like the way every square have different colours but have the same colour schemes to make a face.


Chuck Close, nacido el 5 7 1940 en Monroe, artista EU, pintor y fotógrafo fotorrealista. Desde 1988 una hemiplejia derecha, restringió su capacidad de pintar tan meticulosamente como antes, pero prosiguió su carrera utilizando diversos métodos alternativos para manejar pinceles y brochas, por ejemplo atándolos a su muñeca. La mayor parte de sus obras son enormes retratos basados en fotografías (técnica del fotorrealismo o hiperrealismo).
