I'm new to the site and I've tried to answer this twice already so forgive me if this is a repeat but I can't see my post.
I don't live anywhere near LA. I love this guy's work and I saw the painting appear on his website. So I have been looking for press releases or articles in newspapers in LA since the painting was commissioned by the former senator of California, Michael Huffington and is hanging in a building connected to the cathedral that Huffington donated 2 million to build.
I can't find anything but two posts of the portrait. One on the artist's website and the other in the Living Masters section dedicated to Adrian Gottlieb on the Art Renewal Center Website.
I can't find any discussions about the painting in any blogs either.
All I found was another Gottlieb website that cleared up that it was Gottlieb who invented Piambura painting method that's all over the web but doesn't mention him. That's on Http://www.Piambura.com
I hoped someone knew more about this painter and that he might exhibit on the east coast. I would like to see his work up close. I read in a magazine that he paints exclusively from live models and clients.
