Charles Art Gallery is the home for Chicago artist Charles Rasmussen. Heavily influenced by Picasso, Charles’ paintings lean towards abstract and mix cubism, modern and pop art. Whether painting people, animals or something that inspires him, Charles’ trademark is rich vibrant color that pops off the canvas and has life of its own. People say his work radiates joy and happiness.
On this site you can see his recent work by clicking “The Paintings: 2012-21” in the menu above. There are multiple pages and each thumbnail opens to a larger image. You can navigate through all the paintings with the arrow keys.
