Marc Burckhardt

Marc Burckhardt (born 1962) is an American fine artist and illustrator. Burckhardt’s work juxtaposes historical genres and symbolism with contemporary themes. The artist uses a mix of both oil and acrylic paints in a modern variation of the Old Masters techniques of monochromatic underpainting and color glazing, often executing his work on wood panels. Burckhardt is additionally known for combining some paintings with pressed metal facades, historically known as rizas or oklads, forming elaborate patterns in the metal to create a jacket-like patterned covering
