Artist Biography

Maxwell G. Miller (b.1992) is an American contemporary realist artist working in the Dominican Republic. His artistic career began in the theatrical arts, where he became well known for specializing in large-scale theatrical puppetry. He served as director, artistic designer, and scenic artist for several theater organizations based in Cleveland, OH before pursuing visual art professionally in 2017.

After refining his technique and developing an interest in mythology and history painting, he relocated to Scranton, PA in 2020 to complete an apprenticeship with master artist Anthony Waichulis at the ÀNI Art Academy. He completed his apprenticeship in 2022 and now serves as the Dean of the ÀNI Art Academies Dominicana in Río San Juan, Dominican Republic, where he strives to cultivate a richer artistic community through artistic education.

Maxwell’s sense of theatricality has continued to influence his compositions and has developed into a portfolio of dramatic portraiture and dense still life with a focus on storytelling. His work has received international awards and recognition from leading art competitions and major arts publications including The Art Renewal Center, The Boynes Artist Award, National Art League, The FiKVA Foundation, Bold Brush, The Artist’s Network, Southwest Art Magazine, Art Base, and Art Week. He is an associate member of the Oil Painters of America, an affiliated artist of Lovetts Gallery, and has works in private collections across the globe.

Artist Statement

My career began in the theatrical arts as a specialist in theatrical puppetry. I always enjoyed the process of visual problem solving: How can I take rigid materials and manipulate them to move in a fluid, life-like way? As I refined my techniques in the visual arts, I discovered that by manipulating charcoal and oil paint in the same way, it is uniquely possible to contain the entirety of a complex story in a single image. I developed a particular interest in mythology and history painting, and my work has become an extension of this style of storytelling.

Realism gives me the ability to clearly communicate through recognizable imagery. I find inspiration in other artistic media that focuses on storytelling - music, movies, tv shows, folklore, and mythology - but I’m most inspired by theatrical arts and puppetry. I enjoy creating artwork containing several figures or dense still life, and most of my work falls somewhere in that range.

There is a revival of realism happening now that I strive to be a part of. My sense of theatricality has continued to influence my compositions and has developed into a portfolio of dramatic portraiture and dense still life with a focus on storytelling.

Artist Biography

Over the years, Nic Tibo has always been drawn to arts, drawing and crafts. She has experimented several techniques: fashion design, decorative painting on ceramic pieces as well as different mediums: watercolor, acrylic and oil painting.

Today, she creates original art works painted in oil on gallery canvas in a realistic figurative style with sometimes a touch of abstract. You will find sober colors to very colorful work of art. The subjects represented are mostly photographed by the artist.

She participated at the Pelham Art Festival and an exhibition at Marché Bon Secours, Montreal (Plaisirs d'artistes).

Artist Statement

My interest in the arts has always been present in various forms: drawing, painting, photography but today I realize my artistic ambitions: paint my subjects realistically, in oil paint. Painting is for me a testimony to nature that I just love. It is my main source of inspiration: landscapes, flowers and first and foremost, birds and animals.

My process begins with observing birds and wildlife in their environment. Also, visits to animal parks and sanctuaries enables me to take many pictures of various interesting species. Following my observations and research, the work takes shape several months in advance in my head. Afterwards, creation is made on canvas, closest to reality, while going into the different steps related to oil painting: layer's superposition and drying time.

Work is from background to foreground - from general to specific, striving to create something that is captivating and enjoyable to watch. The composition is edited ad manipulated until satisfaction and the main objective is to create a painting that has a sense of depth. Each painting is an opportunity for me to play with colors, lights and shadows in order to reflect this magic that only painting can manage to create.

Nic’s work can be viewed on her website.

Below are Patrick’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his hyper realistic paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Patrick’s information and to take a look at his artwork.

Artist Biography

Self-taught painter, Patrick Egger was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland in 1957.

First a forest engineer and then a teacher, it was only at the dawn of his sixties, settled in La Creusaz above Les Marécottes that painting imposed itself on him.

After experimenting with charcoal and then pastel, he finally turned to acrylic paint, which lends itself well to his very intuitive practice of working.

He paints landscapes in a figurative way, up to hyperrealism. Through his works, we perceive a persistent quest for sensations linked to the beauty of the place. Through opposing atmospheres, he likes to bring together, for example, the peacefulness of the mountain and the harshness of the alpine setting.

Patrick’s art seems both faithful to the visible and in harmony with a feeling that he seeks to magnify. His style often focuses on indirect light which gives the pattern to a particular climate. 

Artist Statement

I paint in a figurative way, often touching hyperrealism, which allows me to accurately, in a detailed way, to replicate a subject.

When I paint a landscape, from a photo, I am intent on creating a strict reproduction, but occasionally changing a detail. For example, I will make a change in the vegetation or the light on the subject with its linked shadows to the atmospheric conditions, with a view to a search, a balance, a breath or an emotion.

What is imagined must remain realistic as far as I am concerned.

However, some works are totally invented. They then represent compositions of different images, more or less precise memories or simply ephemeral impressions. The difficulty no longer lies in the exact reproduction of a photo but that of a virtual image, even a feeling, without knowing the exact result. The method is empirical - the successive layers follow one another and the result is thus refined little by little. The path to the final creation is not always the most direct.

Below are Paul’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Paul Kenens was born in Brussels (1947), the eldest of six children, without a father. As a 14-year-old and the breadwinner of the family, he found work in a printing house. Updated to a color mixer and offset printer for luxury printing, at the time a specialized craft, he discovered his sense of composition and color. Thirteen years later he left the printing house for a year, but never returned. He no longer wanted to depend on third parties and her started acting. In the same period, he discovered the ceramic craft.

Paul Kenens is passionate about this two disciplines, resulting in two parallel careers. As an independent actor in film, TV and theater, he worked in international theater. As a ceramist, he specialized in color glazes, designed decorations and tile panels, copied old Art Nouveaux panels, made ceramic architectural ceramics for protected monuments and performed artistic ceramics commissions for other artists and architects.

In 2010 he decided to paint and enrolled in the academy. Unaware of the gift or experience gained in painting with ceramic glazes, whose final color is not immediately visible, oil painting is one Revelation: "I can see right now that I do," he says.

He sold the ceramic workshop, stopped acting and devoted himself entirely to the painting. In the academy he was soon given the name of an outsider the passion and use of a detailed painting style.  He commutes daily between academy and his own studio. In between he follows a Masterclass at the Brazilian hyperrealist Omar Ortiz

Artist Statement

My work starts with photos of a fixed fashion model and I take a few hundred photos per photo session. Different photos are edited and adapted until a certain image can no longer be recognized. The chaos in the head must be given a direction, the reminiscences that are attached to it at that moment and the intimate feelings that it arouses channeled. Multiple versions are made in an atmosphere of excitement. During the preparation, uncertainty about the future painted version flashes in all directions. One must first fall a little in love with the subject in order to paint.

I paint the first layer as detailed as possible, as if I want to finish the painting in one layer. Then I paint over the entire canvas in the same way. Shapes and colors are adjusted. I like saturated canvases without painting pasty. They bring depth to the color.

Although the starting point is photographic material, it is always a challenge to distinguish between photorealism and a painted image. Each painting is an attempt to increase the distance between the two. The whole of my work is not sterile but emotional, it shows what moves me. I view the painted canvas more critically, each time from a different state of mind or point of view, with correction as a result.

My titles sometimes raise questions, make the viewer think, it gives the viewer the opportunity to fill in their own interpretation. In the end it comes down to the fact that I partly reveal the inner through the choice made.

Artist Statement

The Animal Series is based primarily on two premises, namely that our fellow inhabitants have always enamored humans, be they domesticated and friendly or wild predators. As such, they make appealing subject matter.

And second is that the human species differs from the animal kingdom in its ability to create what does not exist, as the imagination is not something our fellow creatures share. Thus, this series celebrates those combined aspects, to be either whimsical or provocative.

Below are Barney’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his oil paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Barney’s information and to take a look at his artwork.

Artist Biography:

Barney Levitt has been creating ‘pictures’ ever since he was old enough to grip a crayon and scribble on his parents’ living room walls. He was given his first oil set when he was 10 years old, which set him on his destined path to becoming a professional artist. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting from S.U.N.Y at Oswego, he never looked back.

He was greatly influenced by the works of the Dutch and Flemish masters and his highly detailed works in realism captures the viewers’ attention, for their unique and often humorous content. Humor and a strong narrative are key ingredients in his work, and he often uses a bright color palette in his paintings. His work ranges from classical still life set-ups to quirkier narrative pieces that invite the viewer to create a narrative of their own.

Titles are important to Barney as they give the viewer better insight into what he’s trying to convey. His work combines naturalistic detail with quirky offbeat compositions that often juxtapose ordinary objects in ways the viewer doesn’t expect.

Barney is a signature member of The National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS), A Copley Society of Art Master, a member of The International Guild of Realism (IGOR), and Oil Painters of America (OPA). He is represented by several New England galleries.

Artist Statement:

The goal of my work is to capture the viewers' attention through humor and narrative. My work is highly detailed realism but often with an interesting twist which I hope will elicit a smile, or invite wonder and offer a narrative to spark the viewers' imagination. My subject matter incorporates natural objects like bird and wildlife, to beach stones, feathers, and other found objects. I look for material that evokes a sense of nostalgia; classic board games and antiques. My paintings are created layer by layer, as the details build slowly with each successive layer. I have a keen eye for detail and no detail is left undone in my work. Painting is my way of expressing my unique view of the world and my compositions often border on the surreal. The scenes often can't exist in reality, but the photographic detail would tell you otherwise.
