William Oberst
I am a Post Contemporary, narrative representational oil painter with work in collections in Italy, Canada, and the United States. I adapt Old Master layer-painting to current subjects that move me. My main focus is people.

Besides oil paintings, you'll find work here in other media, particularly watercolor.

There's also a 20-minute film I wrote, directed, and edited titled “The Painter’s Vision." It explores the deep connection between how painters see, and what you see when you look at representational art.

Shown here: "Man At Window," oil on linen, 40 x 50 in., 2014. Detail views are in the Portfolio section.
