Chuck Oberstein (December 18, 1935 – May 8, 2002) was an American painter, best known for clown paintings.  Oberstein was sometimes called "The Magician" for his unique superimposing of clown faces and was known for his sparkling tear drop on his sad clowns. Oberstein also painted seascapes, horses, portraits, children, and various other subjects, at first doing landscapes and still life. Chuck began in Europe and painted over 40 years. He worked in both oil and acrylic, and used live models including many family members as themselves and as clowns. His original art can be seen in prints, lithographs, posters, cards, figurines, and collector plates around the world. Oberstein believed clowns represent freedom, because they will do anything. He was a vegetarian and loved jazz, playing the piano, weight lifting, running, golf, skiing, body surfing, dancing, sports, tennis, dogs and horses, family and friends. His whimsical clowns represent the many things he loved in life as well as a deep spiritual knowing that comes through his lighter clowns in his later years. (Source:Wikipedia
