Alice X. Zhang’s computer-based paintings are phenomenally nerdy! Fellow Dr. Who and Harry Potter fan’s heads will explode with the images of their favorite characters painted in such gorgeous displays of color and artistry. But even for the non nerds, this will still be a selection of art they can appreciate.
My medium of choice is drawing. I was never able to get a handle on painting and really have no desire to learn the craft, but boy do I appreciate those who CAN make wonderful works of art through paints. Especially to the quality that Alice Zhang does.
She doesn’t just dive into the celebrity recreations, however. Zhang also does some original work based on what’s in her own imagination. The kind of artists I blog about are typically the ones who toggle between fandom and originality, both of which I have a high amount of respect for. Alice has definitely inspired me to try a few new things out.
