Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

Danny van Ryswyk

Danny van Ryswyk
Danny van Ryswyk is an artist from the Netherlands.

When I originally wrote this post he was painting high-chroma, detailed still life subjects using the techniques of the Dutch masters, painting on mahogany wood panels.

In an interesting turn of artistic direction, he is now working in monochromatic digital media in the vein of pop surrealism, using 21st century tech to evoke a feeling of 19th century photography.

The pieces on his blog, of which he is offering limited edition giclée prints, are not yet extensive in number but will undoubtedly be added to over time.

(Note: some pieces should be considered NSFW.)

    There were much more photos in Danny’s set. Don’t know why he deleted (at least half of) them.
