I am really enjoying Matthew Daniel Swan’s work. He creates beautiful illustrations and paintings from which he draws inspiration from pulp cartoons and references Trenton Doyle Hancock. Swan was born in 1987 and works and lives in Edinburgh.
Pearl C. Hsiung creates really awesome Manga inspired cosmic scenes of fantasy worlds with enamel on canvas. Hsiung was born in Taiwan in 1973 and lives and works in Los Angeles. You can catch some of her work on display at the Steve Turner Contemporary art gallery from October 16-November 13, 2010. Check her out!
I recently stumbled upon this seriously amazing artist duo, Mildred & Pacolli. Their work is AWESOME! I love it. They recently had an exhibition at the Lower Haters gallery in San Francisco called WE ARE US. You should check out some of their work!
Zhang Xiao, a Chinese freelance photographer, knows just how to grip the viewer’s attention. Incredibly nostalgic, and dream-like, these photos have a way of keeping themselves in our thoughts. I especially enjoyed his series entitled: They I, They II, and They III.
