roz leibowitz

one of my favorite artists of all time is scad alumni, stephanie howard. i finally gave in and saved up for one of her “shag queen” drawings (my wedding present to myself) when i was in savannah and ever since i’ve been on the lookout for artists who work in a similar pen and ink style.

so i was happy to hear from tiana about a show of artist roz liebowitz‘s work. it reminds me so much of what i love about stephanie’s work, and has the same vintage mood and feel to it. i was particularly taken with roz’s ‘lena‘ drawing above, but they’re all quite impressive. click here to check out more of roz’s work at sears peyton.

    Lovely! The one contemporary artist I can think of whose technique is similar [but content is very different] is Nigel Peake.

    Beautiful! I really love the third piece in this post…(center, right). But I’d be thrilled to have any of them.

  3. Zoe Pawlak says:

    These are really similar to Luke Painter’s new pieces which are ink on paper BUT CRAZY BIG! So glad you got yourself a wedding gift, good call Grace!

    A great artist that I love who uses pen & ink with rolled paper to make awesome collages: Kentucky artist Michael Goodlett.

    Reminds me of Madge Gill. Love it.
