Contemporary Artist: Andrew Salgado

        I thought I would take a break from all of the men's style posts and show one of my other passions: art. The other day I came across the above painting, and was so intrigued I had to look up the artist. I discovered that it was a British contemporary artist named Andrew Salgado. His artwork tends to be of people, and particularly faces, but he paints them in an amazing stylized way with thick brushstrokes of vibrant colors. Even amidst all the different brushstrokes and colors though, he paints the eyes so that they convey so much meaning and depth. All of his paintings have such a contemporary, abstract look that I think is just awesome. Anyways, here's a few more of his pieces:
