Todd Monk is an emerging realistic painter using a completely unique style called Pixilism, creating vibrantly beautiful, large scale paintings that are truly alluring. He methodically plans spectrums to produce these luscious pieces, while bursting with vibrant color. His “Pixelism” style is done with much detail so that when viewed from afar the painting is seemingly photographic and realistic, but once looking closer, one can behold the phenomenal amount of work gone into each and every single brush stroke laid on the canvas.
Monk’s work is defined by a dedication to detail, recreating luminous feminine figures, and not being afraid to bridge sensuality with elegance. Monk’s works are painted with hundreds of pixelated textures achieving human-like tones. Meticulously rendered, his acrylic painting employs his signature and realistic style to give the viewer the impression of a living, breathing, and sensual figure.
Monk explores beauty while presenting emotions of tranquility, and sensuality. He evokes excitement, inviting the spectator into a somewhat private environment, such as a woman swimming nude in her own privacy, eliciting a meditative juncture. Best known for his seductive figures, the viewer is captivated by the unseen, inner life of the subjects he portrays.
