great portrait of children’s illustrator Shaun Tan

Australian artist Nick Stathopoulos painted a great portrait of children’s illustrator and writer Shaun Tan (The Red Tree, The Arrival, The Lost Thing). Stathopoulos’ painting has made the finals for the 2008 Australian Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. I love Shaun Tan’s illustrations and picture books (see my review of The Red Tree; the artwork is stunning), so it was fun to stumble upon this. I really like how Stathopoulos incorporates the fantasy that Tan uses in his work; this makes the portrait all the more appealing and visually interesting. A great piece!
