Buddy Nestor

Buddy Nestor has this endearingly unselfconscious attitude, and it comes through in his work. He definitely proves that it's cool to like cult and horror movies and metal music and be inspired by them if you're frank about it, and accept who you are.

I mean, just listen to this quote from his website:

"Painting in isolation on the boat, showed me the calming effect that the creative process had on my mind and body.  I returned to school and received a B.A in Fine Arts.

The series I am presently working on is called, “Every Girl Goes to Hell”.  All of the models I use for these portraits are very beautiful.  However, when I paint them, they are very ugly."
