Contact C. Wilson

I am a working artist that creates Real Fantastic Art in traditional painting media. The current focus of my work is on my art series called Modernizing the Masters.

Modernizing the Masters is a growing collection of artworks that reinvents some of art history's most famous paintings by parodying them with the public eye's subconscious of pop culture iconography. Low-brow puns and suggestive titles to the artworks, create fun new paradigms. I am pretty much like a Weird Al Yankovic with a paint brush right now.

My Modernizing the Masters series has been a notable success for me as an emerging artist.

Like a band that plays cover songs, Modernizing the Masters has been a wonderful connection tool for me to engage with my audience, while I brand my signature as an artist, and introduce fans of my paintings to other original concepts that  orbit to the tune of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Surreal art-scapes.

Once I finish a few more pieces to the Modernizing the Masters collection, I have plans to publish a book that may serve as a contemporary educational tool for art/art history teachers, art appreciators, historians, and of course for the general public to enjoy.
