Grainy, dreamlike images from Rob Simons. In addition to being a photographer, he also had a collection of his stories, Things Kept Burning, published in September 2006. He also collaborated with German director Werner Herzog on the script for Rescue Dawn. He also used to be an English Professor at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento. Basically, he’s pretty talented.

Stephen Wiltshire

19
Stephen Wiltshire is an artist who draws extremely lifelike, accurate and detailed cityscapes. If that wasn’t hard enough, he does it strictly by memory, sometimes after having only observed the cityscape very briefly. Last year he made an 18 foot long drawing of the entire New York skyline after he spent just 20 minutes in a helicopter overhead. He’s also made panoramas of Rome, Tokyo, Dubai, London, and a bunch of other major cities around the world. This guy’s work is extraordinary in every sense of the word – go to his site and read about his childhood, it’s a crazy/inspiring story!

FastformalObjectBigWhiteGG-3

Gustavo Godoy‘s Fast Formal Object: Big White,¬†opened last Saturday at Honor Fraser Gallery, and I’m happy to say that I was there for the opening. The first thing I noticed when I came in was big and white. Everything was white from the walls to the actual sculpture, even the event postcard. The sculpture is big and takes a big amount of the space in the room. Once you go in the room, the only space left is to walk around the big sculpture and little by little the details of the piece unfold as you maneuver your way around it.

Jesse Moynihan

Philly-based Jesse Moynihan draws comics, plays guitar and violin, is a part of post-Supertramp supergroup Make A Rising. He also like jogging and jump-roping. I’m going to go ahead and imply that maybe he’d like jogging buddy if you’re in the area. I love the heros / villains in his comics.

Iva Gueorguieva, Painting

Iva Gueorguieva, currently a Lux Art Institute resident, is a Bulgarian-born artist that paintings are incredibly filled with energy portrayed with color, composition and expressionist brushstrokes. The dreamlike abstract landscapes are highly energized by the amazing intensity in colors and the layers create such dynamic organic like environments, they can’t help but captivate the viewers attention with the exuberant hues and dizzy brushstrokes.

Vania Zouravliov

Russian native, Vania Zouravliov‘s whimsical and highly detailed illustrations are exquisitely gothic and layered with symbolism. Given the high quality of both craftsmanship and detail, as well as the rigorous layers surrounding the morbid characters in the illustration, I think the more often the viewer looks at the work, we’re able to discover a different aspect in the piece. In itself the process of uncovering the many hidden symbolic details brings out an even richer experience while looking at the work.

Jesse Hazelip

Awesome show from California artist Jesse Hazelip, ‘Sentimental Journey’ at White Walls in SF. Keep your eyes peeled if you’re in the bay area because Hazelip’s work is up all over the streets, so it’s no surprise the show is chock full of large wheat-pastes and images on found materials. Much of the work comments on failures of our past seemingly ignored by the actions of the present, and attempts to open a dialogue about the repeating mistakes of American history. The show is up until January 30th, so go before it’s too late!
