A bit static? Interesting comment. Do you mean static in terms of movement? I think Dale captures movement really well in his paintings, better than GD. The only one of the three you mention that Dale has a similar style to regarding capturing movement is Conor Harrington IMO. I'd happily take originals from all 4 artists though as they all suit my taste, especially CH.
As someone who has been a part of this forum for a good bit now, it's interesting to see exactly how it all works. Is this artist the next big thing? There's such a forumla to all of this I find it fascinating (not that there is a formula to great art...just making referrence to the hype-machine of this and similar forums)......the buzz breaks out....some people post some pics of some art ...... people start hedging their bets for future investments (and yes, some do buy the art because they actually just like it).....originals sell relatively quickly for a relative newcommer, prints are made and sell out in seconds, and then everyone who lands an original and/or a print spends the better part of future days looking for the next buzz......and by that time the artist is forced to come up with some new style, a new "feel" or "direction" to their work, or risk becomming irrelevant before they can even afford to move out of their parents' house........IMO....(but I've had a couple of drinks, so forgive my ramblings....and happy Earth Hour by the way)
Very interesting equation and completely correct for this particular movement IMO
An artist can produce good work, it doesn't mean they have to be the next big thing (certainly when they don't practice street art). I think forcing these expectations on artists and over hyping them to earlier can damage their career and make it impossible for them to sustain a constant popularity over years of working practice. Let them just develop and be recognized for what they produce.
