"I always thought that the most difficult thing of painting in big formats was too keep the line gesture and the proportions like in the sketches. My sketches have a lot of mistakes and random lines, and somehow I wanted to reproduce that on a wall. The more effects and colors you use on your work, the more you can hide the mistakes and catch the viewer’s attention… when you use the line and not much more, the mistakes can be easily seen….
Thanks to all the guys that made this wall happen.”
…again a lonely, old warrior waiting for us in the blue cathedral. I don’t know what it feels to fight him if you discover the souls with dark souls II, but when you first did dark souls, and fought Ornstein & Smough, it changes it all. Of course without his big mate it’s easier, but it’s an early encounter in the game… He got a darker, rustier look than Orstein.
Kent Williams has built up a formidable reputation as a powerful contemporary painter. His is a bold realism with combined attributes of abstraction and neo-expressionistic sensibilities. His work is characterized by strong gestural forms combined with areas of arresting detail, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork. Williams’ approach to his subjects is often subjective and intense. Whether through multi-figured compositional complexity and suggestive narrative, or with the straight-forward lone human form, there is often autobiographical narrative at play. Favorite models, friends, and the artist himself all play a role in the human story of his paintings. Williams lives in Los Angeles. He has two sons, Kerig Sun and Ian Kai.
