“Dragons at Vesuvius” by Oliver Wetter

[ Posted: Dec 06, 2021 ]


What’s better than a painting with a dragon in it? If you ask illustrator Oliver Wetter (and us) that would be a painting with 16 dragons in it! The piece, titled “Dragons at Vesuvius” was created by Oliver for his third(!) artist grant received this year and is a unique take on the classic painting “Vesuvius in Eruption” by Joseph Wright of Derby. Sharing the artwork along with the original and images from his process, Oliver said: “I hope you like my result as much as I enjoyed working and especially learning from this old masterpiece!”
