Oakland-based artist Valentin Popov is best known for his meticulous hyperreal portrait paintings.

The displayed artwork produced in 2022, is an Artist Proof print of the original painting on Dibond, an aluminum composite sheet.
Valentin Popov is well known for his portraits which demonstrate not only his craftsmanship but also his insight into the human psyche.
