The Incredible Micro Paintings Of Hasan Kale

Hasan KaleHasan KaleHasan Kale

Hasan Kale likes to work on a small scale. How small? Lets just say that he could probably stuff an entire lifetime of work in his shirt pocket and still have room for a pack of gum. The Turkish painter creates miniature landscapes and portraits on everything from coffee beans to chili pepper seeds making Persian miniature paintings feel like massive murals in comparison. While the subject matter isn’t the most groundbreaking we can’t help but get a bit giddy about the thought of biting into a chili pepper and seeing a painting of a turban clad man staring back at us.

Rich Pellegrino’s Perfectly Messy Portraits of Obscure Pop Culture Icons

Rich Pellegrino has a fantastic way of splattering paint and pigment all over the place in order to create vivid portraits of famous people and myths. He’s a fan favorite at galleries who have pop culture themed group shows, like Spoke Art in SF and Gallery1988 in LA. In fact, it just wouldn’t feel right to go to an exhibit based on any kind of film, comedian, or obscurely famous what-have-you without one of Pellegrino’s pieces in the space. His style is recognizable from across the room and he’s one of the few illustrators I’ve seen who employs a use of texture in his work that makes it pop up a little bit from the page even when it’s in the usual purchasing form of a print.

LYNDSEY LESH: THE ART OF THE RATTLING WALL- This Saturday!

B/D pal  Lyndsey Lesh recently created a series of illustrations for The Rattling Wall, a literary journal published by the PEN Center USA & Narrow Books.

Come see a selection of works by Ms. Lesh, get a signed copy of the book, and eat some free Strawberry Chardonnay Ice cream from LA’s best ice cream shop Scoops! If doing all the artwork for the book wasn’t enough Lyndsey decided to add more work to her plate by creating a writing and drawing process blog of her very own called Off Thee Wall. Read more about Off The Wall and see more of Lyndsey’s illustrations after the jump.
