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.

We wanted to take a moment and share some of these amazing (and horrifying) photographs that The Atlantic posted of the Japan earthquake and Tsunami. Our friends out there are still putting back the pieces and we want you to join us in sending lots of positive vibes and wish them a speedy recovery. Since we’re in a “Sending” mood why don’t we also reach into our wallets and send a few bucks to the Red Cross to help in the relief. You can fill out a quick form on the Red Cross site or just text 9099 to make a $10 donation. More photos after the jump.
