The Amazing Art of Doug Bloodworth

Last Saturday night my sister and her family went to the Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney and had the pleasure to meet and talk with Doug Bloodworth and his wife Karen.

Doug is a local Central Florida Photorealism artist who combines oil paints with nostalgic subject matter like comic book covers, junk food, soda, vintage toys, and games to create works of art that look so real they could be photographs.

He considers his art to bounce back and forth between American Western and Pop Art.  At the gallery we were able to see his latest work in progress which combines elements including a faded pair of Levi’s, the Cars album cover, and a pair of sunglasses.

Doug said that he will continue to paint a series of vintage album covers, and we are looking forward to seeing his future work. Not only is his art absolutely amazing, but it was so fun for my family to talk with both him and his wife to learn more about his style and inspirations.
