Cody Oldham Artist at the Broadmoor Galleries
Cody Oldham is a young professional wildlife and landscape oil painter who has been painting since he was eleven years old. He is always learning and experimenting with new subjects, styles, and techniques. Growing up in beautiful Colorado, he is constantly surrounded by the wildlife and landscapes he enjoys painting. He began his artistic career experimenting with abstracts, wildlife, and dinosaurs (as any kid would). Cody started by sculpting dinosaurs, before going on to paint them. New York artist James Gurney inspired him to paint dinosaurs and is still a major influence on Cody’s work today.
After painting and sculpting dinosaurs for a period, he found his mentor, New Zealand-based artist Andrew Tischler, at which point his artistic approach evolved. Andrew has helped him with painting techniques, the business side of art, and much more. Cody also studies how great artists such as Robert Bateman, John Banovich, and Norman Rockwell created their beautiful masterpieces, which has helped his career progress rapidly. Over the past few years, he has studied different styles of painting and settled on Impressionistic Realism. Through his work he
attempts to convey a sense of reality.
