Dmitri Belyukin ^^
Ivan Kulikov ^^
Ilya Repin aka "Nasty McFly" aka "Are You Serious"^^
Dean Cornwell ^^
I had to share these images. Each one burned a hole into my eyes for quite some time. The top image by Dmitri is in my top 5 paintings ever. So good. Also interesting is that those paintings by Dmitri were painted in the 1990's. All the artists are Russian, except of course for Cornwell. Unfortunately the Repin files aren't the best. Anyone have those images in better quality?
I found a few of these images at this Russian blog I recently discovered. Also make sure to check out Elkin Canas' art blog. One of the best I've seen. And if you enjoy paintings of the sort posted, you'll love Mian Situ's work. Lastly, my internet buddy Valentino Radman launched a blog, and he has some incredible photos of paintings he's taken himself, and other top notch content!
