When I came across the paintings of Brad Woodfin I easily spent 20 minutes straight simply pouring over his work. Woodfin, currently living in Montreal, went to school at The Evergreen State College studying printmaking and painting, and it’s seemed to pay off quite well. His style seems to me like something you might see in a painting from the Renaissance, a stark canvas of black with the bright figure of some exotic animal emerging from the shadows. A lot of his pieces feature birds, though he also dabbles in mammals, even painting a beluga whale. He’s got lots of work on his portfolio site, definitely check out the rest of his beautiful work.
