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.
Colorful worlds with solitary houses by artist K.C. Collins, sit perched on towering tree stumps, in vast and lone surreal plains.
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.
Slick typography, illustration and design work by Sean Freeman, the brains behind THERE IS, a design studio out of the UK. Apparently this guy loves to experiment with out of the ordinary materials, including acrylic paint mixed with hair gel, powder, milk, and smoke. His attention to detail is extremely precise, so it’s no surprise his client list includes names like Nike and VH1… basically he’s killing it.
