Chimpanzee with a Sailor's Hat, Attila Richard Lukacs at AGH

CHIMPANZEE! (w/a sailor hat)
8x8inches, acrylic on canvas, unframed $80.00
Had a nice grey afternoon in Hamilton at the Art Gallery of Hamilton checking out the Attila Richard Lukacs show, here's the fb link with all the info.!/event.php?eid=204314649634654  it's well worth seeing if you're a fan of his work which I was. His paintings were a great inspiration on me when I was in University there were only a few of us who were intertested in figurative painting so it was nice to know that someone was out there in the world succeeding at doing the same. What really blew my hair back was the Tanenbaum collection, it's a must see of French paintes, where Lukacs fails in technique these pieces really succeed in their fine application of layers and glazes, amazing stuff.
The hat on the Chimp above is from Lukac's painting "Michael" which you can see at the AGH, just my way of tapping my cap to a great influence.
