Fresh Faces: New Portraits by Los Angeles Artists

Tonight in Santa Monica: 
Fresh Faces: New Portraits by Los Angeles Artists presented by Saatchi Art
My portrait of Anna May Wong is part of this upcoming exhibition in Santa Monica. Anna May Wong was the first Chinese American film star, and the first Asian American actress to gain international recognition.
Her acting career went from silent films to talkies, to stage, to radio, and to television.
Born in Los Angeles, a few blocks from Chinatown, Anna May Wong's career has been an inspiration for many. My painting was created as an homage to Anna, sourced from numerous photo stills and film clips from the era.

Loving Vincent

by Gregg Chadwick

Currently under production by the Oscar winning companies Breakthru Films and Trademark Films, the animated film Loving Vincent delves into the life and art of Vincent Van Gogh. Each frame of the film is an oil painting on canvas that will lend a sense of immediacy and painterly touch to Vincent's story. 

Loving Vincent is sourced from over one hundred and twenty of Vincent Van Gogh's paintings and from the 800 letters written by Van Gogh during his lifetime.

The trailers below give hints of the animated feature to come.
