Arturo


I first visited Arturo Samaniego more than two years ago.  I was impressed by his realistic paintings.  These days Arturo is experimenting with abstract paintings.
Here, he stands in front of two recent abstracts with a realistic painting in the background.

The folded arms work well together with the lady in the background painting.

The painting of the sunbather is incredibly realistic from this perspective -- wow! I like the colors he selected for those abstracts. Very eye catching.

His realistic work is stunning. They look like photographs. I enjoy abstracts too. He's a talented man.

He seems a talented artist.

I like both styles. Can't pick a favorite!

What a contrast from his realistic to abstract work!

His realism is great and I love the colors in his abstracts. He's evolved since those earlier paintings...but then many fine artists stay fresh by changing and growing.

A triptych! I enjoy your art posts.!

Fantastic photo, Jack, the way the poses are mirrored. He's clearly a talented guy to do excellent paintings in both styles.
