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.
Terry Rodgers reflects the time we are living in through his body of work. He touches on topics pertaining to contemporary body politics, isolation, and hope.
Check out Sarah Williamson’s prints and fill up with a sense of dark whimsy, which is what her work has a tendency to do. Incredibly decorative, surreal, and a sprinkle of naivete.
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!
Mr. W is my favorite commercial. It is really quite clever. I won’t spoil it for you so watch for yourself!
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.
Artists Ralph Lagoi & Kate Lace’s recent series entitled “Love Land Invaders,” is a portfolio of fashion, art, and “luxurious pop” set in some of Japan’s extraordinary love hotels. I feel like I am peeping in on some superhero’s intimate moment!
