“Leeloo” (2010): Gene Guynn is not just a super skilled painter working in California (honing his skills at the Academy of Art University in SF and now working in LA), but also a fellow lover of filmmaker Luc Besson’s cult characters. On his oil-and-wood works, Guynn’s visceral and broad brushstrokes harmonize with those signature multicolored lines and shapes; elsewhere finely-rendered faces stand out on flaming, dripping backgrounds. The horned creations that Guynn chooses to frame his paintings with are art in themselves. Enjoy his gallery online: http://geneguynn.com
