Painter of the Rain

Some natural phenomena are practically impalpable and we can only enjoy their transience. However, some artists manage to capture the moments and transform them into new form of art. Gregory Thielker, for instance, is a painter whose talent allows him to picture the rain and do it with great accuracy and taste.

Gregory was born in 1979 in New Jersey, USA. He was in love with fine art since childhood and developed his talent in the Williamstown University and the University of Saint Luis. Thielker works in a comparatively new genre of art which is called photorealism or super realism. This kind of art appeared in the USA in the 60s of the previous century and then became popular in Europe. The basic technique of photorealism is the detailed accuracy of the representation of reality, so the pictures resemble the imitations of photos much.
