As you all know we have a very active Flickr Creative Pic Pool filled with creative work from all over the world. Yan Copelli is just one of the many talented artists that we found while going through the thousands of images one late night. Yan’s delicately drawn and extra funny illustrations have just the right amount of humor and gross-out visuals for us. Check out his Flickr page and his site and hire him to do your next shirt graphic, put him in your next group show, or even better put down some cold hard cash and add his work to your collection.
Am I crazy or is this video by Tomoya Kimpara gross, beautiful, and slightly pornographic? Watch the full video after the jump and let me know!
Steve Gorman’s ceramic works explore his obsession with nature, animal and human forms, and even his interests in fashion. His sculptures are fantastic and futuristic forms that live between the fine line of abstracting and figuration. Steve’s current exhibit titled Reanimate at the Nerman Museum Of Contemporary Art in Overland Park Kansas is not to be missed. The show will be up until May 8th.
Fawad Khan’s explosive paintings combine the bourgeoning issue of war with several automotive motifs that represent different cultural experiences and influences throughout his life. His works question the use of the automobile, an invention used for the purpose of transportation but becoming more and more a tool of destruction. If you’re in the New York area make sure to check out his show at Lu Magnus from March 25th-May 1st.
It’s really hard to pull off a painting with a white center but somehow Greg Bogin has done it. With a minimal amount of paint and some carefully shaped canvases greg manages to create beautiful work that packs a powerful punch. It also doesn’t hurt that he jam packs his work with one of my favorite things in life…gradients!
David Mascha’s got some great typography and digital illustration work on his portfolio site.
Really enjoying these precise abstractions by Brooklyn based painter Vince Contarino.
Kira Shaimanova’s 3D dolls are super fun, not your average take on illustration, and just the right amount of creepy.
