Charles Bierk, an artist based-in Toronto, learned how to paint from his father, David Bierk, a famous Canadian artist best known for landscape paintings. And you probably might guess that the son became a modern Van Gogh of landscape. Nope, not really! Instead, he mastered the black and white oil painting portrait, creating large-scale hyper-realistic images on canvas that could easily be mistaken as photographs. His artistic execution is impeccable, capturing the beautiful facial details and emotional expression of his subjects. Simply put… Amazing!
