Artist of the Week: Josh Crow

The Cyclist by Josh Crow, oils on canvas, 44″ x 72″, 2012

The Cyclist by Josh Crow [detail]

Josh Crow has a wonderfully personal style of painting that comes from an eclectic variety of influences.  I wanted to call it “Inner City Impressionism” as I walked through the gallery his work was on display in.  There are influences from contemporary fashion photography and Realism as well.  He works big and each piece is very painterly.

He also has some works that were painted on leather, such as the one below.  The suede worked really well for skin tones and had an interesting texture; it was an interesting departure from watercolor on paper.  These works were stronger homages to fashion photography.
