On December 17th, I had the privilege of filling in last-minute to shoot the Shop Your Heart Out event thrown by Save a Child’s Heart New York City chapter. So many creative, talented companies, artisans and artists donated their time, services and money for children in need of live-saving heart surgery.
Two vendors really caught my eye, and today I want to introduce you to the work of LJ Lindhurst, a ridiculously talented photorealistic painter who lives in Brooklyn, New York.
This is the piece that completely drew me in:
I thought it was a photograph until I looked closer. Love the way she addresses perspective and captures light and detail. Amazing. I was *this close* to splurging on it…until I checked out the $900 price tag. A girl can dream…
Here are a few more of my favorite pieces of hers:
Oh man. Both are super creepy but incredibly well executed! Loving her aesthetic.
Her signed prints are a more affordable way of taking home some of her genius. I’m seriously considering purchasing the following for my bedroom…maybe as an early 30th birthday present to myself?
