Exploring monochrome. Paco Pomet -|- Devin Leonardi. Some of my favorites include Internacional, and Gatun Lake. Pomet uses primarily oil on canvas, and Leonardi acrylic on paper.

I was just talking at camera club tonight with another B&W fanatic about how photography seems to have formed a whole new visual language centred around the limitations of monochrome, certainly due to a couple of centuries of technological limitation. While there's charcoal and pen drawing, it doesn't seem (to this perhaps unworldly photographer) that the painting world has really explored monochrome - much of the classic work has been colour, even when abstract. Therefore cool and timely that you should post this.

Though I am puzzled (but thoroughly amused) by the presence of a Sesame St character riding shotgun with some bandits. Don't quite see the mono connection.

I think Paco Pomet is a phenomenal artist, and I'm glad to see his work featured here. Internacional, in particular, really struck me.

Pomet's are astonishing.

This one, in particular, for me. These two are close behind, though.

Thanks netbros, I love these artist posts.
