Oil Paintings of Astronaut in Pop-Culture settings


Scott Listfield paints Astronauts. And sometimes dinosaurs. Chiefly drawing from elements of pop culture, media and film, Listfield creates scenes on the canvas that make a visually stimulating end result. One of his most consistent characters is an astronaut in the form from Stanley Kuprick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Instead of the astronaut exploring the depths of space, he is exploring the present.

Through his journeys, the astronaut goes to viewpoints, beaches, golf courses and laundromats. Incorporated into the painting are additional elements such as characters from Star Wars, Aliens, or other movies. Currently, he is showing his work at the Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles until February 24, and to see more of his work you can visit his site Astronaut Dinosaur.
