Chuck Close

This guy is one of my favorite artists. I don’t know many , but he is fantastic nonetheless. He paints large-scale portraits using inventive methods but always manages to make his subjects come alive. Despite being paralyzed later in life from a spinal artery collapse, he still managed to overcome his physical limitations, painting using his neck when necessary due to his non-functional limbs. He is a wonderful artist and hero for anyone who has struggled to overcome physical disabilities. Check him out here if you’re interested.
