Featured Art(ist) – Chris Appelhans

This week’s featured artist is Chris Appelhans.

Chris Appelhans is a professional illustrator and concept artist located in Los Angeles. He also sells many of his works, so if you like what you see, you can buy prints and pieces here (scroll to bottom.) Anyways, what I love about Chris Appelhans’ work is how naturalistic it appears. His art education involved the incorporation of natural elements (twigs, leaves, grass) into his medium. The effect of this education shows.

The way Appelhans plays with shape and line is visual appealing and very organic in composition. I find the landscapes he composes feel both foreign and familiar, maintaining a visual appeal.

Another talented artist who needs more acclaim in my opinion!
