A few days ago I discovered Fredrik Rattzen in the art forum on Reddit. I thought Fredrik’s oil paintings were beautiful and was pretty shocked to discover his work is digital painting created using a Wacom tablet. A while back I did a post on the computer generated art of Jared Tarbell. Unlike Tarbell, Rattzen, a 22 year-old art student residing in Sweden, draws upon painterly traditions. The Cloud painting and some of his modestly named ‘sketches’ below remind me of JMW Turner’s paintings, and Rattzen’s graphite drawings show that his digital mastery is built upon a knowledge of traditional mediums.
