A contemporary American artist, Jeremy Lipkin, was born in 1975 in Santa Monica, California. He began to draw on the “call of blood”, he is the son of a professional illustrator. Speaking of himself Jeremy emphasizes that although he liked to draw always, but in his childhood, he did not study it specifically until, one day, when he was a teenager, he felt an unusual craving for painting, the early acquaintance of the young artist with the world of art became, perhaps, the most important link in all his subsequent artistic education.
The greatest influence on the worldview of Lipkin was the paintings of artists of the past, combining the traditions of figurative painting of the nineteenth century of the European academic school of painting and a naturalistic landscape with an emphasis on color and lighting.
After school, Lipkin entered the California Art Institute, where he devoted himself to the study of techniques and styles and long hours of drawing, becoming one of the best students of those years. Currently, he teaches his skills in art studios across the country. Jeremy is a universal contemporary artist, he paints landscapes and still-lifes equally well, but he especially likes to draw classical objects, such as a portrait or figure of a man on any background. Lipkin’s paintings are reminiscent of works of nineteenth-century artists of the naturalistic direction and just like those artists, Lipkin prefers to work in a “cool” color palette that does not abound, helping to create a special, unique mood.
