John Brophy, US, the Mantra Waterfall, (Self-taught fine artist)

View his website. Conceives his projects through digital media then completes in oil using 15th-century techniques. So inspirational for those of us who can’t go to art school. In his medieval influences I find something actually original, unlike some other artists I see just aping Medieval or Renaissance works.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
