Sammy Slabbinck’s Surreal Collages Play With Proportions And Warp Reality

Sammy Slabbinck -Mixed MediaSammy Slabbinck -Mixed MediaSammy Slabbinck -Mixed Media

Sammy Slabbinck’s surreal collages disassemble the world and construct a surreal place of strange happenings. Taking portions of found imagery, the artist builds compositions in which women are out of proportion and larger than life. They are integrated into the landscape and dominate the scene, while others in the frame barely seem to notice these beauties. There are other bizarre events happening in Slabbinck’s artwork, such as men carrying sections of the galaxy, buildings sprouting out sexy legs, and people at a dinner party watch a bomb go off while appearing unaffected. It almost seems like that the only people that seem aware of their surroundings are the giant women. These are the characters that confront us as viewers, looking right back at us.

Drawing inspiration from vintage books and magazines, Sammy Slabbinck’s collages have a classic feel to them with a modern twist. The composition he creates tends to be both humorous and seductive, as different elements that were once normal now become bizarre through distorted scale and strange juxtapositions. Everything should seem out of place, but Slabbinck’s perfect placement and imagery combinations make everything appear perfectly balanced. You can see more of Sammy Slabbinck’s work on his site or at Saatchi Art.

Annie Kevans

Portraiture is what Annie Kevans does best, and she does it really, really well. Not simply a realistic representation, Annie’s paintings reflect her interest in power, manipulation, authority, innocence, and the duality of truth and falsehood. Pretty heavy stuff for such serene and temperate images. Annie graduated from London’s St Martin’s School of Art, and will have her work featured in the upcoming show “The Power of Paper” at the Saatchi Gallery.

Aurelien Arnaud

shutup

Grenoble, France’s Aurelien Arnaud‘s art work is not something you would walk by without looking twice. Arnaud’s designs are sharp, bright, and some, a little risque.  Interesting none the less. Not only a very skilled designer, Arnaud founded PNTS studio with Denis Carrier.

Diary Of A Madman Part 2!

Book 1: Supernaturalism Covers

Kyle has been busy drawing over 200 covers per day. It’s mind boggling to think that he has so many images stored in his head. Kyle has been going at it nonstop but judging by the covers pictured above his brain is feeling like mush after back to back 12 hour marathons of drawing. I’m happy to announce that subscriptions will be going out tomorrow. It’s a few days later than we had planned but I think we were off on our math as to how long each book cover would take. Below are a selection of covers from the last few days.
