When people observe art, the try to find a purpose, a message behind the whole thing. In many art pieces, the message may not be obvious or clear. Within the work by Ripo Visuals, their clear, easy-to-read, simplistic messages are powerful. Catchy, funny, truthful, clever phrases have been left on buildings all over Europe and South America.

Large-scale public art installations and sculpture by Chilean born artist Sebastian E. His work draws upon a wealth of political and religious themes in very clever ways, often with a deeply twisted sense of whimsey.
Canadian artist Kathryn Macnaughton creates beautiful illustrative designs using suggestive imagery and pornographic material. I particularly love her “Filthy Rautten” series and her “Unicorn Sandwich.”
