who: Colin Chillag
what: painting/mixed media
why: because it's a wonderful 'unfinished' photo realist portrait. Colin Chillag develops his images from a minimal linear drawing and adds in his colour palette showing the developmental process to a painting. We think it's a great approach to get students to understand how to build up layers/sections of an image and not to be afraid of leaving what's necessary. Have a look at our previous blog post about Cristina Troufa's work - she also likes to create 'unfinished' style paintings!
