podkaynestudios' Shop Announcement


Welcome to my shop!

I specialize in fine still life, especially vintage objects from childhood--video games, toys, and knick knacks. I use professional grade acrylic paint and high-quality stretched canvas to create my pieces, except where noted (I occasionally use canvas panels or masonite, especially on smaller pieces.) I love doing custom work of this type. You can view my work in person at the Mellwood Art Center in Louisville, KY, as well as in the Louisville FREE art browser, Pure Uncut Candy (April, 2011-Derby Issue). I have won several art awards at EBSQart.com, a fully self-representing artist's community of which I am a Juried member of several years.

I also paint video-game themed art which is based upon actual games from the past 30+ years. I have been doing art of this type on the video game convention circuit for nearly a decade; I have enjoyed watching the world of gaming craft grow up in that time! My pieces are not always direct screenshots. I instead focus on capturing moments of play or particular characters, icons, and items which bring the essence of playing the game to the viewer. I create crisp, uniform, handpainted pixels, which are as true as I can make them. My paintings look as good from 10" away as from 10', all the while retaining the pixellated quality that makes them video game images.

If you are looking for custom work, or have any questions, please feel free to send me a message!
