There are artists you admire for their acute attention to detail, and there are those you admire for free-flowing technique. Melissa Manfull, who works with ink, graphite, and pencil, is an artist admired for both. Combining one to three mediums per piece, Melissa’s work usually features architectural-style geometric structures, juxtaposed with
From The Omen’s devilish Damien to those chilling twins in The Shining, there’s always been an unsettling connection between children and the genre of horror within popular culture. This is something that artsit-turned-photgrapher Loretta Lux captures brilliantly in her surreal portraits of young children. Loretta’s work is
Though traditional fresco paintings were created in plaster, Brit Hammer creates her fresco paintings in cement that she sculpts and blends with cement powder, water, glass and pigments, all made by hands. An interesting technique resulting in beautiful and colorful frescos.
Composer and sound designer David Kamp recently came up with one heck of a fantastic idea, consequently producing equally fantastic results. Leaving behind the comforts of his studio and venturing off into the wild, the master of all things musical recorded a whole range of sounds and noises emitting from
Admit it, we’ve all wondered what would happen if we microwaved something that we know should never ever enter a microwave. Thankfully the curious people behind Tumblr blog, Microwhat have quenched our thirsty imagination with their range of eye-pleasingly bright images detailing the
Here is the latest project by Human Since 1982 : “Collection of light” is simply a collection of LEDs which together constitute a lamp in itself.

There’s not too much information on artist Suzy Lelièvre, but her striking works speak for themselves. A steel ladder does a graceful backward bend into a full circle, a bowl of noodles connects to a large mid-air fork, and dice dots sink towards the ground. In fact, in most of Suzy’s work, everyday objects are spun, skewed, [...]
San Diego’s Subtext Gallery is currently hosting an original concept as part of a collaboration with guest curator Christina Conway. Up until 11th December, the exhibition entitled ‘Homeroom’ will be displaying one-off works by contemporary artists who have cleverly re-imagined their childhood drawings.

Although their media ranges from photography and video to illustration and installation, and their clients come from practically every industry and continent, their finished work is always subtle, yet still definitely a work of art.
Exhibiting internationally since 1995, New York-based illustrator Matthew Cusick owns an impressive portfolio of mixed media art. The Texas-born king of collage is widely known for his work with vintage map cut-outs, configuring entire states and countries into credible works of art. As applaudable as this work is, I’m particularly drawn to the colourfully ironic ‘Happy [...]
Since 1987, Dutch Photo-realistic artist Tjalf Sparnaay has been working on his imposing oeuvre, constantly seeking new images that have never been painted before (mostly painting food). What he calls Megarealism is part of the contemporary global art movement of Hyperrealism, and with prices of original oil paintings between 10.000 and 45.000 €, Sparnaay is [...]
In his newest series “Magic Mountains” German hyperrealist painter Marco Reichert revives the references to classical landscape paintings but again based in his own constructed world. Psychedelic shapes and a type of Pop-art complexion brings the observer into an environment that has to be
