Nucleus will be presenting acclaimed fantasy artist, Justin Sweet on November 5 – November 28, 2011. Best known for his concept artwork, the award-winning artist has worked with George Martin on his acclaimed series, Game of Thrones, as well as many other projects including John Carter, Green Lantern and Magic: The Gathering.
Sweet’s exhibition will showcase a number of his latest works including large-scale oils, expressive watercolors, and never-before-seen concept art. His oil paintings depict epic fantasy narratives, often capturing climactic moments in which characters from the Dark Ages face or overcome great adversity. These works possess an atmospheric weight, achieved in part by Sweet’s bold brushstrokes and rich use of color. It is these same confident brushstrokes that can be found in the gestural swiftness of Sweet’s watercolor paintings. The watercolors are fleeting visions of great warriors and beasts.
Fans will also be able to purchase a limited edition giclée reproduction signed and numbered by Justin. So make sure you don’t miss it if you’re visiting or live near Los Angeles, California.
