Stefan Bleekrode's work can best be described as everyday snapshots, small bits of beauty in familiar settings. Most of his paintings are set in the everyday (sub)urban settings of North America (particularly the Northeast) and London.Light is the one single thing many of his paintings revolve about, in the absence of daylight, the intricate patterns of artificial light in deserted streets at night.
“Last month I started a ‘30 isometric renders in 30 days’ challenge. To get ideas out of my (mental) sketchbook onto my screen I created one isometric picture/render a day. I love the style, it’s good render/lighting practice and good to ‘keep the motor running’ so to speak.”
