Aaron Smith and the Romantic Mustache
Aaron Smith must be somewhat a romantic. His thick brushstrokes when combined with his nostalgic 19th-century era figures recall the gesture-heavy Post-Impressionists but with a fresh color palette.
Using a palette that could be culled from the Fauvists, Smith’s otherwise brooding men are brightly colored, flipping ideas of masculinity on their pastel heads.
P.S. I hear he rocks a serious mustache himself
