Our artists in 3ºESO

5th December 19

Chuck Close is one of the most important American artists of all time. His work is associated with hyperrealism in which he confers a very personal character by building his well-known portraits from a grid.

In 3º ESO we have been talking about photography and its application in painting. We have studied the portrait theme and the different artists who have worked it to finally make a work inspired by Chuck Close’s method: we took a picture of ourselves, we created  a grid, drew in it and finally we painted each square with a different print.
