Cameron Knutson is an oil painter who, while learning how to draw photorealistically at a young age, was always more interested in painting a narrative than achieving an exact likeness. Working from his studio in Chicago, he paints figures which are confronted with loss and immerses them in colorful light. Cameron combines classical painting techniques with contemporary color theory to push the boundaries of color in realism painting.
