As the year comes to an end, I, like many, tend to reflect on the last year. One thing I enjoy is looking back to see what posts readers of Today in Art like most. The best way I have of doing this today is by looking at the most visited posts.
Anthony Freda is a political artist and illustrator and has been published in popular publications like Time, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Esquire and more. Freda’s illustration is edgy and will certainly make you think.
Guest writer John Adams introduced me to Jorge Rodriguez Gerada in his post 10 Stunning Examples of Charcoal Art. Jorge creates enormous mural portraits of people in public places for everyone to enjoy.
Janet Lage’s paintings are full of energy, color, texture and line. These paintings are traditional in the sense of media used, but they have a gritty, graffiti art feel about them.
Ann Marshall’s work combines realistic painting with patterned and textured collage elements. I especially enjoy the direction of her newer portraits, where the collage elements have lots of texture and color.
