About Doug


Doug Bloodworth’s artistic perspective is influenced by a childhood affection for American western classics and the quintessential youth of the American dream. A combination of Pop Art, photography and textural paint strokes, his work was born from inspirations that began when he was a boy, and have grown into the refined craft of photorealism.



Doug's selections


Roberto Bernardi

Todi, Italy

"I had the good fortune of havign the opportunity to see Roberto’s show Painted Illusions: Hyperrealism Museo de Bellas Ares de Bilbao, Bilbao, Spain. His candy paintings are just eye-popping. How does he get the plastic wrapping to crease that way in oil paint?"

Ian Bodnaryk

Orono, ON, Canada

"Ian is fascinated with art and the natural world, and it shows in his paintings. I love the painting of the story of Alice in Wonderland under the light bulb. Reminds me of glorious nights at the cottage on Lake Muskoka."

Paul Cadden

Glasgow, UK

"There probably never has lived a greater talent of portraying the human condition with a pencil."

Jason de Graaf

Montreal, QC, Canada

"Jason De Graaf has a unique relationship to steel marbles. How he portrays the reflections is out of this world."

Robin Eley

Adelaide, Australia

"Along with Roberto Bernardi, Eley is one of the world’s greats when it comes to the hyperrealistic portrayal of crinkling plastic. Love, love, love."
