Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at the painting tools, methods, and inspirations of one of the top artists working in the growing field of Pop Surrealism. For the first time, beloved best-selling author and artist Camilla d’Errico pulls back the curtain to give you exclusive insights on topics from the paints and brushes she uses and her ideal studio setup, to the dreams, notions, and pop culture icons that fuel the creation of her hauntingly beautiful Pop Surrealist paintings.
With step-by-step examples covering major subject areas such as humans, animals, melting effects, and twisting reality (essential for Pop Surrealism!), Pop Painting gives you the sensation of sitting by Camilla’s side as she takes her paintings from idea to finished work. This front row seat reveals how a leading artist dreams, paints, and creates a successful body of work. For fans of Camilla and the underground art scene, aspiring artists looking to express their ideals in paint, and experienced artists wanting to incorporate the Pop Surrealist style into their work, Pop Painting is a one-of-a-kind, must-have guide.
This is the most beautiful book that I have seen in a long time! The colors are so vibrant and amazing!
In all honesty, I have to admit that I found some of the pictures a little odd, but that is the point of pop surrealism. I always tell my daughter that great art evokes a reaction from the viewer, whether good or bad. Although some elements of the works were unusual, the details of each one were extraordinary.
Anyone who loves art will love this book. Even if you are not an artist, the step-by-step descriptions will help anyone explore the pop surrealism movement.
The beauty of this book is not to be missed!
