Elizabeth Peyton has a way of portraying the men in her paintings as very beautiful boys. Her new show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise continues this style, making the subjects of her brush, softer and more romantic somehow. With subjects including Leonardo DiCaprio and a wonderfully handsome portrayal of Obama kissing Michelle, Elizabeth Peyton shows New York why she continues to be one of the City’s hottest artists.
The thing about Elizabeth Peyton is not the subjects she chooses, she’s just a really incredible painter and no matter what she turned her attention on, it would no doubt be an extraordinary piece of art.Elizabeth Peyton.
