YUICHI YOKOYAMA

 

I have never heard anyone utter a word of dislike towards Yuichi Yokoyama‘s work, and for good reason. Personally, I have never come across a comic artist this flawless and complete. His style is immediately recognizable, but never tedious, and his works are as spectacular as Hollywood action films, yet they can be about visiting a garden, traveling on a train, or building strange forms of shelter. He reinvigorated my interest in comics, and I hope he can do the same for you (if needed).

Kelly Kerrigan

When Nashville native Kelly Kerrigan isn’t handcrafting her signature “tramp lamps” from scrap lingerie, she enjoys working with paint on canvas. The strange, yet storybook-like works she creates intrigue, maybe even provoke a little laughter, as, all the while, it is wondered what sort of underlying narrative has brought together Boba Fett and a large, fuzzy rabbit.

Alex Schubert’s Blobby Boys

I like to think of Alex Schubert’s Blobby Boys as a mid 90’s live action sitcom that never happened.  They smoke (and deal) weed, romp around the city on motorcycles, slime people, and steal your milk money all before they’ve had band practice.

A recent graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), Stanzie Tooth paints scenes that evoke a sense of calm. Her works often feature woodland landscapes, sometimes bursting with pastel hues that would make a Fauvist blush.

A1One’s Street Calligraphy

A1One (aka Tanha) has claimed his influences to be as diverse as Australian Aboriginal art to Mayan narrative hieroglyphics, but what stands out most in his recent works is his strong connection to his Persian heritage and his Iranian homeland. A1One has been gaining recognition lately and rightfully so. His colorful, intricate scrawls on Tehran’s walls and canvases artfully blend Arabic calligraphy with current street culture, as well as address social issues around the globe.

Sunghyun Kyung

 

Kyung Sunghyun’s work has a diverse and layered narrative. His work is created through various frameworks, with one of the main foundations being about ‘shakiness’. It’s as if the image is shaky due to an incorrect over exposure on a photograph. In fact, Kyung Sunghyun’s paintings reinvent the overexposed photographic image. However, his reinventions don’t speak specifically about the shakiness of the image, nor does he emphasize that shakiness. To Kyung, shakiness blurs the shape, at the same time revealing his subject’s true emotional and psychological state. At a closer look at his paintings, one finds that images of faces from different angles, such as frontal and side views, are superimposed upon one another. This expression exposes his desire to better reveal his subject in the portrait. In ancient Egyptian art, parts of the human body were depicted in combinations of the frontal and side views. This was the common artistic style of capturing the human body at the time.
