FINALLY! There are music videos for all the video game nerds hopped up on Redbull and fruity pebbles with their customized controllers, and vibrating gaming chairs who are about to get to the final level at 3am on a Saturday night! By Eclectic Method.
Michael Shapcott is an emerging artist from Connecticut. His paintings and illustrations take traditional portraiture and add elements of folklore and dream imagery, his main source of inspiration. His work is nothing less than powerful, inspiring, and emotional.
I’m loving the vintage feel of Maine based painter Suzannah Sinclair’s washed out nudes. It’s odd that someone who lives in one of the coldest parts of America would paint these nostalgic images of young beautiful naked girls frolicking at the beach. Perhaps Sinclair longs for some of the amazing California sunshine that I take for granted 365 days a year.
Illustrator Allison Sommers’ paintings are full of creepy crawly creatures, majestic story lines, and surreal narratives set in a world that is not our own.
Freelance illustrative designer Andrea Berretta has a great collection of posters and designs with creative hand drawn typography.
Mustafah Abdulaziz’ Memory Loss is a series of photographs captured throughout the United States. His photographs vary widely in content from landscapes to individual portraits to candid groups. They each in some way, though, seem to portray a disarmingly frank American identity. Among other photographs in the series, Abdulaziz groups together an image of little girls returning from a princess tea party with a gathering of tribal elders on an Indian reservation. Indeed, his statement explains that his work “explores social identification and how our ideas of self representation create instances of cultural disconnect.” In 2010 Abdulaziz became the Wall Street Journal’s first contract photographer and in 2012 he was named one of PDN’s New and Emerging Artists to Watch.
