Stunning Space-Inspired Paintings by Michael Kagan
Brooklyn based artist Michael Kagan composes stunning large-scale paintings, which pay homage to everything related to astronauts. Depicting space stations, spacesuits, and rocks in a heavy blue hue, Kagan’s work is both symbolic and abstract. He uses quick and thick brush strokes to create texture and dimension as well as to construct a highly expressive image.
To maintain a realistic portrayal of space, Kagan captures a fleeting moment or instance, which is usually seen in photograph. The presence of two astronauts, the spaceship takeoff and the working machinery are snapshots of sough-after figures.
