Van Arno

ImagineFX - - Reviews -­

Based in Los An­ge­les, Van Arno is a fig­u­ra­tive pain­ter whose work has been dis­played in­ter­na­tion­ally for al­most 20 years. His back­ground in­cludes il­lus­tra­tion, amuse­ment park de­sign, game art, an­i­ma­tion and char­ac­ter de­sign. Van’s paint­ings have fre­quently been fea­tured in the al­ter­na­tive art mag­a­zine Jux­tapoz and in­cluded in a na­tional sur­vey of Low­brow pain­ters. Van fo­cuses on the fig­ure and its power to en­gage the viewer, and he har­bours an on­go­ing fas­ci­na­tion with pro­pa­ganda im­agery and its use of the heroic fig­ure.
