Wilford Barrington

Coffee

Canadian artist Wilford Barrington creates portraits – portraits that will have you appear cracked and fractured & probably far more interesting that what any mirror has to offer. His portraits bring to mind Oliver Sacks’ book, The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat & Other Clinical Tales – neurological case studies documenting the power of the mixed-up mind and its ability to easily play tricks on our perceptions.

Jason Polan – Every Person In New York

Illustrator Jason Polan is on a mission.  A mission to draw every person in New York.  Jason is spending 2 minutes a piece drawing people he sees in the streets of New York City and blogging the results daily.  The result is fun doodles of interesting characters and even some famous names.  If you’d like to be a subject, check out the blog and email Jason, and he may inconspicuously sketch you at your decided location.  More NY portraits after the jump.

Andy Freeberg

Commercial photographer Andy Freeberg deals mostly in, well, commercial work, but recently has been exploring fine art photography as well. In his series “Guardians” we get a look at the female guards who watch over the art museums of Russia. Freeberg says, “When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over.” Indeed, the contrast between these women and the work they’re sitting next to can be quite captivating.

Alex Wein

203

Alex Wein is a 19 year old photographer in the BFA Photo program at Maryland College of Art. He seems to have a background in skateboarding, having already been published in mainstream skate magazines (Transworld, Thrasher, etc.), though a great deal of his work, much of which is black and white, has little to do with skating. He particularly excels at portraits.

Jon Huck - Breakfast series

 

Jon Huck‘s “Breakfast” series exhibits portraits of people along with exactly what they ate/drank that morning. Some of these people bear a striking resemblance to their food! I’m fond of these parallels, especially the one between the bald man and his hard-boiled egg.
