What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?



Mike Creighton

Today, I’m thrilled to bring to you the stunning, partially-obscured portraits by Oregon-based artist, Mike Creighton. According to the bio on his website, he uses a variety of media including oil, gouache, graphite, charcoal, digital applications, “and code.” That’s intriguing.

He calls this series “Facing Obstructions,” and they all measure an impressive 20″ x 20″. Creighton has been focusing more on drawings of late, but I’m really taken with these paintings.

You can follow the amazing Mike Creighton on his website and on Instagram and Deviant Art.

  1. These really appeal to me. I love the tension the artist has found between realism and abstraction.

  2. Tension is right! Did you see the “30 faces 30 days” project on his website? It’s all different styles, different materials, and different faces. I think it really shows off his range, and I thought it was something you’d like when I saw it.


  3. WOW these are awesome. Btw from where the hell is this man!?


  4. The red painting is insane!
