This month, our spotlight artist is painter Scott Listfield. Scott’s paintings usually include his iconic astronaut character, some dinosaurs and popular culture icons. His work captures both the idea of the future and world that we all live in today. Watch our video interview to get an inside look into Scott’s work and how he got started on Fine Art America.
Scott Listfield (b. 1976, Boston, MA) is known for his paintings featuring a lone exploratory astronaut lost in a landscape cluttered with pop culture icons, corporate logos, and tongue-in-cheek science fiction references. Scott studied art at Dartmouth College. After college and spending some time abroad, Scott moved back to america and began painting his astronaut series.
Scott has been featured in many magazines including Wired Magazine, the Boston Globe, and on WBZ-TV Boston. His work has also appeared in New American Paintings and Surface Magazine. In 2010 he was named a Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant finalist, and was the official artist of 2011 Boston First Night. He has exhibited his work in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, Boston, and many other places.
Scott currently has a solo show “Astronaut” until July 12th at Chicago’s Rotofugi Gallery. We definatly recommend to stop by and see it!
