Hélène Jeudy’s Magical Graphite

Brussels-based Hélène Jeudy consistently pumps out magical graphite drawings that never cease to dazzle the eyes with the banal and the demonic. From the kitchen to the pits of hell you will go, with your eyes being blasted by her beautiful tonnage. She recently, had a book released by POGO Books. Support. This. Lovely. Dream.

ARMANDO VEVE

Philadelphia-based Armando Veve‘s impressive body of work shows his ability, and eagerness, to explore several different drawing methods, from the naive to the refined. In doing so, he leaves no doubt to the viewer that he makes a choice, and executes that choice with clear intent. He doesn’t seem to have many limitations. He also dabbles in ceramics, curation, and digital abstractions. At this pace, his work will only get better and better, and endless gifts will be bestowed upon us just for looking.

KILIAN ENG’s Far-Off World Funkiness

As a result of Moebius‘ recent death, the interent has exploded with the man’s masterful works, and surely the sci-fi and art community is in need of great talents to fill this void. While not at Moebius’ level (which seems nearly unattainable), Kilian Eng is nonetheless incredibly imaginative and prolific, and it is certainly possible that he may one day too become a master of his own sort. He brings his own brand of funkiness to these far-off worlds, and each image holds either countless narrative avenues, or mind-clearing abstract pleasures. The future, his future, his futuristic future, is a bright and promising one (a past interview and a world of goods and greats).

UNO MORALEZ’s Bitmap Narratives

Moscow-based Uno Moralez creates mysteriously creepy bitmap narrative works that spin tales of sex, magic, dark humor, and other-worldly creatures. At times the perspective recalls early 90′s computer video games (not this one specifically, but that just needs to be seen), and at others, the thrill of horror manga. Something fantastic is added by the crunch and texture of the bitmap effect, and his use of highly dramatic scenes cause him to stand apart from much of the pixel art the internet has to offer, which tends to play up the flatness of its screen origins. Don’t miss his loops over at his site, and you can get physical with his comic in Chameleon 2.

AARON SHUNGA

Really loving the kid’s book layout vibe, too. Ingest.

MATTHEW CHARLES CRABE (NSFW)

NJ-native Matthew Charles Crabe pulls his imagery out from the deepest parts of his mind-gutter. There’s all sorts of fleshy things teleporting out of, or going into, strange orifices, then there’s the spillage of lactated milk, 40oz malt liquor, doo-doo, female and male juices, complete with the ageless beauty of symmetry. This wonderful mixture makes me think of one of his horrific, yet funny, images being diagrammed for there beautifully symmetrical properties in the way a celebrity’s face might be. Be warned, all images after the jump are certainly incredibly gnarly.

LALA ALBERT

Lala Albert has consistently drawn the most beautiful multi-eyed freaks for years now. I’ve never seen theme and variation work this well before, and I don’t believe I will get tired of her work any time soon. Catch her sprawling comics at Vice , in Chameleon and Gang Bang Bong, and on Arthur Mag. She tumbles, flicks, textiles, and twits. Sassy. Oozy. Gals.

RYAN TRECARTIN X DAVID KARP

As a part of Rhizome’s Seven on Seven, Ryan Trecartin and David Karp created riverofthe.net, a collection of 10 seconds or less community submitted videos. Trecartin, probably today’s most important video artist, and David Karp, creator of tumblr, were brought together, along with several other artists and technologists, by Rhizome back in 2010. Anyone can easily submit, and the more videos the better, because one of the only negative aspects is seeing videos you’ve already viewed before. It’s an incredibly simple and effective idea, which showcases videos that are typically more interesting than most video art out there.
