Chad Robertson’s Magnificent Multi Viewpoint Paintings

Artistaday.com recently featured the mesmerising artwork of LA based painter Chad Robertson. It’s pretty impressive, and I’ve found myself staring (obviously not in a rude way- I don’t think my laptop cares) and searching each piece for the wonderfully hidden additional scenes and layers. There are so many! Each painting is made up of a collection of digital photographs, composed in Photoshop, printed and the painstakingly reproduced on canvas.

“So much of what we do is hidden from the naked eye.” Chad Robertson.

With his artwork, he aims to explore the hidden intentions, motivations and emotions of his subjects by compiling various moments in time. The narrative effect of these detailed, colourful collages is beautiful and endlessly engaging.

You can read more about Chad’s inspiration, process and check out more of his art on his website. In fact, I would recommend that you do.

As always, none of the images on this post are mine, and in all cases they link back to the artist’s own website.
