With a background in commercial art for big name brands, artist Eric Bowman’s current work focuses on real-life painting and the capturing of genuine moments.

He portrays his subjects in their element, such as a songstress belting out a soulful tune, a ballerina prepping for her next routine and chefs preparing gourmet meals. His paintings have a photographic realism to them, not just in the expert detailing but also in the way the scenes seem candid and not at all staged. Viewers can appreciate the genuine emotions portrayed, and are therefore able to better relate to the subjects in each artwork.

Real life painting is a natural talent for Eric Bowman and is often more approachable than fantastical surrealism. Stats for Performance-Centered Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
