Lyle’s AOPs

Leprechaun made of bottle capsLyle has become known in the DAP community for his object-based AOPs and original paintings. This leprechaun painting made of bottle caps is a typical example of his style which has its roots in the early days of DAP. DAP’s predecessor was the Arcimbolder which made paintings using fruits, nuts and vegetables as brush strokes. This again was inspired by the Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593), best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books – that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject.

Leonid AOP

Posted by Rocambole on Oct 18, 2012 in AOP Templates

Leonid Afremov (born 12 July 1955 in Vitebsk, Belarus) is a Russian–Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works mainly with a palette knife and oils. He developed his own unique technique and style which is unmistakable. Afremov is mainly known as being a self-representing artist who promotes and sells his work exclusively over the internet with very little exhibitions and involvement of dealers and galleries.

Before the advancement of online sales and eBay, Afremov was a struggling artist. He was born in Vitebsk, Belarus, and lived there until 1990. Between 1990 and 2002 he lived in Israel, and from 2002 to 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida. Afremov currently resides in the popular resort town Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Cancun. He paints mainly landscape, city scenes, seascapes, flowers and portraits. Most of his work is considered very colorful and politically neutral. (From Wikipedia.)

This AOP is trying to recreate his style, with big palette knife strokes gathered from his own paintings.
