Wesley Dunlop (aka SNIPES)
Wesley Dunlop (aka Snipes) is an emerging airbrush artist from Victoria BC, Canada.
He combines realism with elegant atmospherics & expressive abstract elements in his paintings. Utilizing a bold colour palette & contrasting textures he creates powerful works of illumination, depth & energetic motion.
Displaying great versatility in subject matter, he paints anything from portraits & landscapes to wildlife, fantasy and more. His unique use of perspective gives a great sense of expansiveness to his vast sky paintings, one of his signature styles.
Wesley grew up with an innate talent for drawing & sketching but has only recently revisited his passion for art and creation. Since 2016, after being drawn to the unique qualities of the airbrush, Wesley has been completely self-taught in his discipline and is now a full time artist.
His work is influenced by nature, the universe, fantasy & science fiction, mythology, hip-hop, urban art, and the natural beauty of Vancouver Island where he was born and raised.
Wesley's works are in collections throughout Canada & the U.S.
