American artist Rick Pas works in the direction of Contemporary Realism. He is a passionate artist, experiencing all the highs and lows and considering creating to be an addiction. Rick Pas is interested in the surface textures of nature and creates paintings that portray every insect, or a bird in detail. This hyper realistic effect makes viewers run a hand over the feathers and moss, or grasp an object in the painting. The subjects of his paintings – human interaction with nature. He often finds inspiration for paintings in remote wilderness areas of the world, local parking lots, and his own backyard. Rick Pas graduated from Eastern Michigan University, Bachelor of Fine Arts. Art works by Rick Pas were exhibited throughout the USA and internationally. Hyper realistic painting by Rick Pas has been featured in numerous art magazines, from “Wildlife Artist of the Year” in Michigan Out of Doors, December 1982 (article & cover illustrator) to “Abuzz About Bugs,” The Artist’s Magazine, July/August, 2015.
