i’m jealous of arnout van albada

I feel like I have to mention that Netherlands based artist Arnout van Albada paints all sorts of still-life objects… meat, cheese, rhubarb, butter, cans, peaches, vases, fish, bagels, raspberries… and the list goes on. I, however, could only focus on the jello molds and toilet paper. Hm. Not sure what that says about me, but I can tell you that all of his work {eitempera and oil on panel} is absolutely something to swoon over. So, so, so beautiful – yep, even the TP {um, is that a tiny 2-ply dolphin?!}

    Wow! That is so realistic, yet so magical at the same time. Thanks for this wonderful tip:) I’ll be sure to check out the rest of his work too.

    I’ve been following your page for awhile and i’m obsessed… (especially the Neil Krug posts). You have the best eye!! Thanks for the daily dose of art. This is seems like a nod to Wayne Thiebaud with a more realistic approach…

    Also check out Thrush Holmes. He’s awesome! Just did a post on him myself. I feel like might fit into your style, very contemporary/cool multimedia works with neon
