About the Artist

Ever since Philip started painting 30 years ago there was one main focus that resonated with him: the figure. He studied anatomy for artists and spent hundreds of hours learning, experimenting with color, composition, and drawing. Because he's spent well over a thousand hours painting the figure from life it's enabled him to stretch out and create more interesting canvases using the camera as a tool. Some of the themes he's painted include NYC street scenes, boxing (he boxed years ago), the Civil War, the Indian Wars and a series of paintings of imaginary scenes inside museums pulling together a variety of images to create those paintings.
