Gold leaf oil painting by Brad Kunkle. Talented American artist Brad Kunkle was born in Lehighton, Pennsylvania in 1978, and has a BFA in painting from Kutztown University. As an artist living and working in New York City, Brad Kunkle creates extraordinary paintings using oils in combination with gold and silver leaf. The result is simply stunning and can be described as a dreamy photo-realistic. These paintings are embellished with genuine gold and silver leaf, which reflects light in a room differently than paint. Therefore, they can appear contrastive and unique when the point of view or source of light has changed. You can currently see some of Kunkle’s newest works on his website.
