The Wonderful And Hedonistic World Of Don Pablo Pedro

Don pablo pedro paintingdon pablo pedro paintingdon pablo pedro paintingdon pablo pedro paintingDon Pablo Pedro’s work flutters on the edge of libido insanity. It embodies grotesquely beautiful scroll paintings featuring twisted hermaphrodites in kama sutra type positions, marked with multiple genitalia. Playing tantric wizard, Pedro takes us for a hedonistic ride through all of his rosy, maladjusted conquests. Along the way, we see fine line work and light acrylic washes on muslin. Muslin is the light cottony material used by designers to fit models before cutting a pattern. Here, the artist uses it to attain a flat surface which compliments his precise drawing ability. It seems appropriate, as the artist’s work is easily suited to T-shirts and canvas bags. It holds a pop element near, yet references the old religions of Hinduism and Buddhism.The narrative, taken directly from multi-armed Kali, the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shows work that is happily consumed with variations of her likeness. Substituting arms for male and female genitalia, the appendages pile on top one another turning into “third eyes” and “fourth arms”. Newer studies, concentrate on multiple partners more than parts. Also portrayed in hedonistic positions, subjects mimicking, love, lust, faith, and dreams materialize. Comparisons to Surrealism, Japanese scroll work and comic books have been made. There is a Crumb association, but Pedro goes to further lengths. He takes the psychedelic yogi route, opting for freak show characters instead of urban myths. His mysterious subject matter holding true to the power of sexual desire.

Frozen Flying Birds and Seed Installations By Claire Morgan

The work of British artist Claire Morgan is alive with natural forces.  Birds appear to fly, flail, or fall through lighter-than-air formations of seeds.  Using nylon thread Morgan suspends her installations giving the impression of an event caught in time.  Peculiarly, she is able to express the idea of passing time and motion by appearing magically to stop it.  Morgan’s interest in natural forces is clearly apparent in her work.  The installations are nearly a way she can manipulate these otherwise immutable forces.

Chloe Early’s Sublime Oil Paintings Contrast Beauty and Destruction

 

London-based artist Chloe Early works primarily in oil, creating paintings that set themes of “love, beauty, and innocence” against “worldly symbols of agression” -bombs, bullets, urban development, etc. And we’re talking right up against each other. Subjects as disparate as weapons and flowers seamlessly come together  as one to create a kind of informal pattern. Missiles, engines, and guns -harsh, metallic things- spiral away from lovers and graceful figures. In creating such a sharp contrast of subject matter, Early captures an elusive, sublime moment. That perfect, last second of beauty before everything falls to shit. That enormous show of strength in the midst of destruction and decay. More paintings after the jump.

Presenting your artwork in the best light is always a must. The good people at  Made With Color  couldn’t agree more and have taken it upon themselves to create one of the easiest and cleanest website building platforms in the world.  Made With Colors delivers easy to use websites that are mobile friendly with drag and drop functionality. This week we’ve teamed up with them to feature one of the many artists that use their platform to present their work.

Wandering inside the landscapes of Justin Kim is like entering the consciousness of the artist. Choosing to paint different subjects according to the seasons, he ends up depicting landscapes during warm weather periods, when he can sit outside and take advantage of nature. His inspirations lead his paintbrush. By painting outdoors, Kim surprises himself and improvises on the go. Each painting is filled with soft harmonized colors that have a washed out vintage feel with wide brushstrokes and dense layering that captures the far reaching horizons. The exact locations of each painting is unknown but Kim’s rich sense of  color, perspective and space makes us want to run out of our homes and search for these impressive landscapes.
