Posted on April 02 2013
American Photorealism artist Charles Bell was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1935. Bell was known for his whimsical large scale oil paintings that depicted toys, pinball machines, and gumball machines. Bell's paintings display everyday objects rendered with great care to create works that that appear to be photographs. Bell did not receive any formal arts education and was originally an accountant before he became an artist. Bell worked out of his West Broadway studio in New York. This painting is titled "Paragon" and was created in 1988 and measured 50 x 96". Bell passed away from AIDs complications in 1995.
