There are artists who take themselves too seriously and then there’s Russell Nachman. A skilled realist painter, Nachman chooses to use his superior technique to depict bizarre people clad in KISS-inspired make-up. Many of his subjects are rockers you’d expect to see in hip parts of your city, but the inclusion of white make-up and pitch black eyeliner morphs these otherwise rad people into clownish figures. And in case you think the KISS reference is purely coincidental, you should know he has a painting of Paul Stanley with the word "Prototype" written next to the musician.

Russell Nachman is currently working on more paintings for a new solo exhibition. He’s a hot commodity in the gallery scene, and his other projects include being an author and a musician. Stats for Rockstar Impersonation Paintings Trending: Older & Chilly
