Top Five Underrated Artists

Many of the most brilliant artists are undiscovered, not being able to be truly acclaimed for their outstanding works of art. This top five list will be going over a handful of the most phenomenal artists that are underrated.

 

One

“Night Rain in New York” 2016

Starting off this list is Chin H. Shin, a young painter with a knack for eloquent expressionism incentivized by the tedious, dreary looking streets of Manhattan. His style consists of wild brushstrokes and hazy impressions and almost all of his artwork features busy streets on rainy days. His techniques utilize oil paints and watercolor on canvas.

 

Two

“Vanishing Ice,” 1897-1947

With a simplistic approach to elaborate mountain views and landscapes, Nikolai Roerich is the best in his field. Roerich’s paintings are said to have a spiritual bond, as they are inspired by his dabbles in hypnosis and spiritual practices as a part of a movement in Russian society. Roerich was a well-known painter, writer, archaeologist, philosophist, theosophist, and public figure. Many musical allusions can be attributed to his paintings as well, as he related music to the use of color.

 

Three

“02.56” 2016

With such intricacy and endeavor, James Chia Han Lee illustrates this style better than anyone else. When viewing one of his abstract sketches, you can see the effort and deliberation that goes into his pieces, eliciting a powerful feeling. Almost like a sketch, the piece appears unfinished and like a work in progress, giving it the individualistic style that is presented above.

 

Four

“Caravan Park and Amenities Block- Plein Air” 2015

Sally West is a skilled impressionist painter from Australia with a passion for painting alluring landscapes. West coats her canvas with thick strokes and bubbly, pastel paints. Her paintings are mostly of beaches and major cities in Australia and she has been painting for most of her life. West has also been featured in hundreds of exhibitions showcasing her art.

 

Five

“Golden Glow” 1915

Last, but most certainly not least is American impressionist painter Jane Peterson. Rich, vivacious fusions of pigments are exhibited in almost every one of Peterson’s paintings, establishing a natural and almost electric ambiance. The muted colors help bring an interest in light and the grandeur of everyday life. Most famous of her works include watercolor and oil paints. Captivated by the romantic, fanciful nature of Europe like many artists of her time, Peterson took an official grand tour of the cities there and was under the influence of many renowned artists who educated her on the very basics of painting, techniques, and composition. While in Europe, she was also under the influence of emerging styles like fauvism, expressionism, impressionism, and cubism. This trip aided Peterson in gaining a better understanding of art, which further helped her career as an artist.
