Andrew Nigon’s sculptures draw attention to the bizarre nature of our existence in which we have an insatiable drive to improve while simultaneously living within bodies that are in constant decay. Using the discarded detritus of society in chorus with brightly colored materials that are typically reserved for happier times, Andrew creates heroic yet tragic monuments devoted to a human race that is trapped in an incomplete and fractured world.
British artist Matt Williams A.K.A Uberkraaft should be renamed Uberkool! He’s got a beautiful portfolio full of ultra detailed black and white illustrations as well as perfectly colored pieces that are bold but not too pushy. More visual eye candy after the jump!
Ryan Lake’s seamless blend of traditional and digital techniques create loose narratives of characters caught in a world of their own. My favorite works are his ongoing series series of images dealing with boredom in the suburbs which is a theme I can relate to. Being bored in the burbs was one of the main reasons I started Beautiful/Decay! If you like Ryan’s work make sure to pick up a copy of the Beautiful/Decay: Underdogs book which features Ryan’s work.
