1940s style portraits with dark humor

We’ve seen realistic portraits of people going about their day time and time again. But Danny Galieote kicks it up a notch by adding hints of dark humor into the mix.

The Los Angeles-based painter specializes in creating scenes of everyday life in America and is influenced by the Regionalists and WPA artists of the 1930s and 1940s. Galieote is quickly on his way to becoming one of the masters of the human figure and its interaction with the environment, thanks to the expressiveness of the figures depicted in his scenes.

Human nature is depicted very well in his paintings with great attention paid to narrative and what the subjects are doing.
