Bruno Vanoudenhove is a local painter, photographer, business owner, and the latest artist to be featured in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. His show – titled Black Tie – is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch where it elegantly captures Chicago’s world-famous cityscape in striking black and white portraits. You can catch the photorealistic paintings of Black Tie through September 28th, and after that, you can see more of Mr. Vanoudenhove’s artwork by visiting the websites for his paintings and photography. I recently spoke with Mr. Vanoudenhove via email about Belgian furniture and chocolate, his artistic awakening in a Barrington art class, Chicago skyscrapers, and his plans to dramatically expand the scale of his work.
We are extremely pleased to introduce local painter and photographer Bruno Vanoudenhove as the next artist in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. From now through September 28th, his elegant exhibit Black Tie will be on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch. For Black Tie, Mr. Vanoudenhove used his finely-tuned photographic eye to create photorealistic portraits of Chicago’s best known landmarks in black and white acrylics. You can view more of Mr. Vanoudenhove’s artwork by visiting the websites for his paintings and photography, and make sure to check with Off the Shelf later in September for an insightful interview with the artist himself. Stay tuned.
