Chuck Close

Charles Thomas "Chuck" Close is an American painter/artist and photographer who achieved fame as a photorealist, through his massive-scale portraits. Though a catastrophic spinal artery collapse in 1988 left him severely paralyzed, he has continued to paint and produce work that remains sought after by museums and collectors.

Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work.
