vincent boon portraits

I love it when an artist takes a tried and true  genre like the portrait and makes it fresh and interesting. Vincent Boon’s deceptively simple portraits do just that.

MATT LIFSON

There’s a whole lot going on in the work of Matt Lifson. From lush landscape painting, to broad abstract brush work, to deathmetal members shooting purple beams out of their eyes, there is something for just about everyone. These paintings are wild, wacky, and inventive in just the right areas and that’s just how I like them!

Robbie Rowlands’ Precise Cuts

Robbie Rowlands is a Melbourne based artist whose work explores notions of stability and vulnerability through the manipulation of objects and environments. His repetitious and precise cuts and the resulting distortions reflect the inescapable passing of time that affects everything around us. Rowlands’ works have been described as“spotlighting the history, humanity and function” of his subjects. His manipulated objects and spaces blur the boundaries between our fabricated world and the natural world.

Pooktre Tree Shapers

I know this is a bit outside of what we usually post and I apologize for the cheesy type that’s on these photos but you have to admit that a stick figure tree is pretty amazing (get it? literally STICK figure!). Starting in 1986 Pooktre Tree Shapers has been making all sorts of amazing living tree sculptures, gradually shaping the trees over many years. Check out some of my favorite pieces from their site after the jump!

Philip Kwame Apagya’s Aspirational Living

Philip Kwame Apagya is a Ghanaian artist whose color photographs reflect a contemporary twist on traditional West African portraiture. In Apagya’s photos, subjects interact with his brightly painted 2-D backdrops, interiors and exteriors that catalogue the trappings and accoutrement of an affluent international culture. Subjects inhabit faux living rooms showing library shelves or consoles stuffed with expensive electronics, or chat on cell phones standing before home computers, or prepare to board that international flight to happiness. While Apagya’s photographs reflect a young and prosperous generation of consumers, one can imagine that for some, the photographs also present a “reality” beyond their means.
