Summary
"A unique behind-the-scenes guide to the painting process of one of the most popular artists working in the growing, underground art scene of Pop Surrealism. Painting superstar Camilla d'Errico opens up her studio and offers readers an insider scoop on the tools, techniques, and inspirations she draws from to create stunningly beautiful, otherworldly works of art. Pop Surrealism, with its unique blend of high art and popular culture, has been a growing force in the art world for years. Artists working in Pop Surrealism use elements of manga, cartoons, movies, and more to produce paintings that have been displayed in galleries and purchased by collectors around the globe. In addition to her work in manga and as the author of the best-selling Pop Manga, d'Errico is also one of the Pop Surrealism movement's biggest names. From high-end art galleries to comic book conventions, d'Errico's works draw legions of fans, collectors, and admirers. With Pop Painting, fans and aspiring painters get an up-close look at the step-by-step processes she employs to transform oil and acrylic paints into unforgettable images of her ethereal and beautiful characters. This one-of-a-kind look at a painter at the top of her field reveals all the materials and methods readers need to join the ranks of the Pop Surrealism movement"--
