Chuck Close

Chuck Close is a visual artist noted for his highly inventive techniques used to paint the human face, and is best known for his large-scale, photo-based portrait paintings.

Chuck Close, the great American painter, describes his unique process of making impossibly massive and hyper-realistic portraits and how he uses his body as a tool. Close suffers from face blindness, which makes his expertise as a portraitist all the more staggering.
