Our acquaintance has been only a short time, But our time spent is so gentle on my mind. How is it that we become so full of certain people? Like a ray of warm sunshine that goes on and on never to end…. Never wanting it to end!! Feelings so full of warmth. Smiles so easily crossing lips. What a WONDERFUL ACQUAINTANCE!!!
Oh yeah! Bon Voyage Monroe and thanks again for all your help! (View some of his artwork after the jump!)
Mysteriously dark images from Belgian artist Klaas Van der Linden. Almost all his paintings are set against a black background, and many are self-portraits. The obscured nature of this work reminds me a little bit of paintings by German artist Henning Kles.
Dido Fontana‘s photography-vérité, is candid, relaxed, naturalistic (okay, not natural for everyone) and funny. Using film and developer, acid and dark rooms he discovers his girls and their midnight romps are beautiful, it just might be their off day and that’s okay.
Read more about Dido in this interview & check out some preview images from his newly release book.
If you like funny looking faces, then you’re gonna love what P.Williams has going on. A little bit of Crumb mixed with some Barry McGee, throw in some Spongebob Squarepants and we’re starting to get a little bit closer. Great selective use of color and text too, it looks like this guy fills up an entire sketchbook every week!
Porous Walker‘s “LOST” is simply hilarious, truthful and yeah, a bit sad. Through this incredibly annoying economy many people, not only in America, but around the world have found themselves in the situation depicted in this flyer. Let’s cheer up and hope that this year will bring lots of goodies to everyone, especially, you know, those with no jobs.
Daniel K Sparkes started his career in the British street art scene since the 2000s. His work is a juxtaposition of photographs, paintings and drawings that combined depict burlesque portraiture, illustrations and landscape. As if eaten alive, the portraits remain anonymous and faceless, yet there is plenty detail where the face or limbs should have been. These faceless and limbless portraitures are playful, disturbing and interesting, especially when done in large scale, as example of some of his murals.
