Looking for realism artist

Recommended Posts

Lately, I've been entertaining the notion of getting a black and gray realism piece but I don't know of anyone nearby that specializes in that type of thing. I've been thinking about getting a bear/tiger/etc but don't really want to give it too much thought until I know if there's a guy nearby that can do it. Can anyone think of someone preferably within a few hours drive of me? I live in south central PA, about 2 hours from Philly and 1 hour from Baltimore, if that gives you some perspective.

As it stands now, I think Bryan Merck in Philly is probably my number one choice. I've seen some really nice black and gray realism from him, but not a lot of animals in his portfolio. I don't even know if he'd be interested.

True. I was just wondering if there were some other local gems I didn't know about. I mostly only pay attention to traditional/neo-traditional artists in my area and now I'm kind of interested in other styles and don't know where to begin.

Most of the artists at the NYU convention were doing realism... that was just last month but I think a lot of those same artists go to the shows up and down the northeast- not too far from you in Central PA... maybe.
