Atmospheric oil paintings by Britt Snyder that capture his life through a lens

“My inspiration is to document the world and people around me
through my personal lens,” explains Britt Snyder, an artist from
Boston. “I paint images of the people in my life with a focus
on capturing a mood.

“I’m looking to capture the personality, atmosphere and story
behind the person in a way that only an oil painting can. My
paintings take on the feeling and vibe of wherever I happen to
be at personally during the moment I created them. I see these
as documents in a visual language and a history of my past four
years in physical form.”

With a process rooted in the many representational painters
that have come before him, Britt loves to bring together his
love for photography, movies and video games, as well as
referencing painters like John Singer Sargent: “I’m fascinated
with modern video technology and fusing those two worlds
