Having a life-size oil portrait done is a very special experience
like bringing another person to your home or office. It's going
to be a immortal version of you or your loved one that never ages
and lives on the canvas for eternity. Having your likeness preserved
and being there for your descendants on the wall to be remembered
long after death are great pleasures for many people. Having original
oil portraits hanging on the wall also reflects the sitters' high
intellects and social status.
Many people don't like to hang old photographs of their ancestors
they have never met. The old photos are likely to be stored in cardboard
boxes and completely forgotten or destroyed. On the other hand,
well-executed oil portraits of the ancestors are valuable works
of art, and they are a lot more alive and appreciated than faded
photographs. Oil portraits can also be used to bring back the loved
ones that are no longer with you. It might be the best thing you
can do to glorify and commemorate them.
The artist studied painting at Syracuse University (BFA, 1996)
and New York Academy of Art (MFA, 1998). He has an extensive experience
in portrait painting and photography. He mainly paints from photos
he photographs, but for out-of-town clients & posthumous portraits,
he will consider working from client-supplied photos.
Our portrait studio is located in Brooklyn, NYC. We also set up
a portrait booth at 87th St. and 5th Ave. during wamer month. This
is in between the Metropolitan Museum and Guggenheim Museum but
closer to the latter. Please feel free to stop by and look at a
few samples of oil portraits if you happened to be in the area.
For clients specifically interested in photographic portraits,
Portrait Artist New York provides photography-only
