Chuck Close

When I was at school and in my art class, I really got into an artist called Chuck Close. A photo realistic painter, photographer and printmaker who created portraits of his friends on large scale in perfect detail, as well as self-portraits.
His skill is second to none and style is very recognizable, often using a grid set-up to help construct his masterpieces.

It's not often I blog about someones work but I've been following Close for 10years now and I thought I'd like to share his great talent, which he has been showing for well over 30years now.
