It may not be a secret to some people that the following five actors are also bonafide artists, in a non-acting sense, but some of you may be shocked. According to Park West Gallery in Michigan, within their walls you can find a myriad of artistic talent, but do they carry the works of these following artists. It would definitely be a fun sight to see.
Unless you are a die-hard fan of an actor or actress, it makes sense that you might not know about all of their talents. Usually the big news that one hears about celebrities revolves around marriages, affairs and divorces, not painting or sculpting. For a little change, here are five celebrities that not only wow us on screen, but also know how to create amazing art.
Pierce Brosnan wasn’t just 007 for a few movies. Along with the art of acting, he is also quite a skilled painter. His colorful works, according to his artist website, have been mostly done for his wife, however, he is now selling some for charity. His paintings are very eye-catching.
Viggo Mortensen is a multi-talented artist. Not only a chiseled leading man, but he is also a photographer, a poet and a painter. His paintings are abstract works that are full of eye appeal. In fact, his paintings were featured along with him in the movie A Perfect Murder.
Aside from her movie roles, and current stint as Dr. Watson, Lucy Liu is also a painter and sculptor. Her wood, resin and bronze sculptures are awe inspiring. She really dives right into her craft and you can feel her love of art just looking at her completed works.
Garey Busey is just a crazy actor that makes people shake their heads. He once did a cameo for the show Entourage where he parodied himself, as an actor that turned into an artist. The parody wasn’t that far off since he creates artistic posters, that are a little crazy (like him).
When Jim Carrey isn’t busy tickling people’s funny bones in his comedic adventures as an actor, he is spending time in his very own art studio, painting. It seems Mr. Carrey has been painting since childhood. His art is usually of colorful people, both fun and strange to look at, like him.
This is definitely an interested set of five celebrities that are more than movie stars, but also painters. It’s likely they aren’t the only multi-talented actors and actresses out there. Some stars cross over from screen to stage for music careers and some author books. Creative minds love a myriad of outlets, and this is proof.
