The enlarged fashion pages by Italian artist Stefania Fersini bring back to real scale the characters and the scene in the foreground, creating a parallel world made of models, scenarios, icons of our society. As in front of a mirror, viewers recognize the reflection they aim to identify with. Magazine papers picked recycled from
I am a fan of hyperealism paintings, the fact that artists are able to paint so perfectly that it looks like a picture, it’s pretty amazing. And that goes for Italian artist Vesna Bursich with her crumbled paper paintings, she
This is such a lovely work. Sunny summers camping and fishing outdoors up the foothills, rivers and lakes of Oregon, brought Dean Cruser to like nature so much. His watercolor animals of style “loose, simple and spontaneous” are just amazing: an explosion of color to enjoy.
For many people, retirement means having ample time to indulge in their dreams and pursue the things which matter most to them. For Englishman John Tierney, retiring from his Criminology post at Durham University has afforded him the opportunity to take on the iconic cityscapes of Los Angeles, which he featured in these lovely photo-realist [...]
Caitlin Doherty has always loved making things, sculpting, print making and especially painting. Indeed, this recent graduate of Canadian OCAD from the Drawing and Painting program even paints on hand constructed birch supports she makes herself. Her work is derived from vintage family photos that she finds at garage and
Korean artist Ho-Ryon Lee’s pieces are classified as paintings, although they look much closer to photography. Indeed, he paints on canvas but the previous process includes the artist taking several photos of the model in a specific pose and
The sumptuous ALKAHEST series is the latest work of artist Jonathan Saiz. In this crystalline form everything is made of the multitude – the splendors of Versailles, the rearing stallion and other distractions or ambitions. A curious history restlessly shifting,
It was just a matter of time before young, modern artists would draw from technology and gadgets for inspiration. Take the work of Kon Trubkovich, a Russian-born, New York-based artist born in 1979. He begins his work by filming his own videos, which he further analyzes, sometimes presenting selected clips as separate films, and then [...]
You really enjoyed Noah Sheldon’s cats wearing clothes, so you will love Heather Mattoon’s adorably styled fur ball paintings. All these kittens have names, occupations and wear cool clothes just like their keepers. Giclee prints of all of the paintings are available to purchase the very friendly price of $32.
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 [...]
The Canadian artist Melanie Authier‘s paintings bring together visual contradictions into one imaginary space. By drawing upon the histories of abstraction and the strategies of representation, she presents improbable environments. A sense of disorientation comes about through the way in which colour, texture, line and shape compete for
I’m in love with these amazing paintings by American artist Kelly Reemtsen. The unexpected combinations of anonymous headless figures in beautiful vintage frocks holding simple tools like axes, gardening sheers, bolt cutters, chainsaws and crowbars also have great names, like “Heavy Handed”, “Axe” or “Character Assassination”. I really like the way the artist captured the combination [...]
