I checked out an art show last night which featured the impeccable work of artist, Bart Cooper (@b_art1), a Lehigh Valley native who relocated to Los Angeles to take over the art world. I still remember seeing his work years ago and it left a lasting impression on me. This was my first time seeing some of his work in person. In a word, captivating.
There is so much emotion within each colorful stroke and so much that is told within its layers. The Purple Series focuses on iconic figures such as Muhammad Ali, President Barack Obama, Prince, and more. I found myself searching the art for details I may have missed upon first glance and becoming entranced in the strokes and vivid colors. His work is wild and I was so glad to finally be able to lay my eyes upon his canvasses. Check him out at: MDbyBartCooper.com and @b_art1
