Stuart Dunkel has spent decades refining his hyper-realistic style. He paints realistic imagery based on real world inspirations. His paintings show that the everyday object can be fascinating. Dunkel is an artist, a musician and an author. He has studied music at Boston University, Mannes College of Music, the Juilliard School (Doctorate), and art at the Boston Museum School, Kent State, the Academy of Realist Art, the Seattle Academy of Art as well as privately with respected teachers and other realist painters. Even after his extensive education, Dunkel still feels that he is self-taught, because he has utilized his innate artistic abilities throughout his life.

This original oil painting is 12 inches high by 15 inches wide. It is framed in a modern white wood frame, wired and ready to hang. It is signed by the artist in the lower left hand corner. Size and price include the custom frame. Convenient local Los Angeles shipping. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping are also available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included with this unique work.

Stuart Dunkel was born in Fair Lawn, New Jersey in 1952 and currently lives in Boston. He began painting and playing classical music at the age of five and went on to a long career with top orchestras in Boston, New York, and Hong Kong. In 1994, he transitioned from music to fine art.

For his subject matter, Dunkel alternates between still life, landscape, and animal portraits that fuse detailed depictions with subtle humor. He hopes his viewer will find joy, optimism, and playfulness, as well as a sense of classical balance and beauty in his work.

Dunkel's professional track has revealed to him the many similarities between music and painting. Rhythm, harmony, counterpoint, balance, contrast, scales, chromatism, keys, high and low, dark and bright, loud and soft, colorful and dull, can all be found in his compositions.

He is a member of The International Guild of Realism, The Art Renewal Center, and the Copley Society of Boston and has won awards and been invited to show at The Guild of Boston Artists, The Copley Society of Boston, The Salmagundi Club, as well as art galleries throughout the United States. Recent shows include Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles and the Affordable Art Fair New York.
