Photorealist painter Charles Bell drew inspiration for his large-scale still lifes from America’s love affair with toys and arcade games. Working primarily in oil, Bell depicted vintage dolls, Barbies, and action figures arranged in imaginary scenes and dynamic compositions, cast in studio lighting.
