Jimmy Law & uniqe expressive portraits

Jimmy Law painting style and technique is self-taught.

As an artist with a graphic design background, Jimmy Law had a tendency to work in a very controlled and precise style. He was very accomplished as a realistic painter, technically his work was great, but his work was stagnant it lacked energy.

In December 2010 he decided to approach his painting style differently by eliminating the use of small brushes. Most of his first pieces done in the new, expressive style were done in a fairly neutral palette with subtle use of color. Recently he have started using a lot more color.

“In all my work I try to incorporate the use of contrast and good composition. When done in such an expressive style, it often creates rather bold, energetic and dramatic images”.
