Jon was born in Saraiu, Romania and now lives in Fairfax, Virginia. He starts each work with some lines and glimpses of colors spontaneously. The idea is then guided by instincts and imagination. He uses a variety of conceptual mixed media. Such as, experimental photographs, pastels, acrylic, pencils, graphite, and some even stranger materials… Jon sites his inspirational sources as music and the surrounding environment as it is. I am guessing that [...]
Some New Art found by our staff
Martin Stranka is a self-taught professional photographer from the Czech Republic. Martin’s vision portrays itself through his images that exist in that narrow space of a few seconds between dreaming and awakening. Over the past few years Martin has won well over 30 international photography awards. After spending an entire day trapped within his digital photos, it’s easy to see why. Martin’s secret to photography? Supernatural models. Awesome.
Natalie Shau is a talented mixed media artist and photographer of Russian and Kazakhstan descent based in Lithuania (Vilnius). She found interest in fashion and portrait photography as well as digital illustration and photo art. Despite her personal work, Natalie also creates artwork and photography for musicians, theater, fashion magazines, writers and advertisement. These are a few of my favorites.
Art my not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of the metal and wheels that get you from place to place, but in my opinion this is a beautiful exception. Gorden Wagener designed the Mercedes SLS based on the 1960′s Mercedes Gullwing. It is an incredible example of industrial design. Regretfully, with a starting price around 200k this car will not be my daily driver [...]
Loom tells the story of a successful catch. A moth being caught in a spiders web. Struggling for an escape, the moths panic movements only result in less chance of survival. What follows is the type of causality everyones expecting. The spider appears, claims its prey and feeds on it. The way nature works. But it’s the point of view that creates an intense relationship between the hunter and its [...]
Frits Hoendervanger was born in the Netherlands in 1947. In 1960, he immigrated with his family to Canada, then to Michigan in 1964. Frits, being a self-taught artist, has received numerous awards for his paintings. “Larry” is my favorite of his work. This is oil and canvas and seems to perfectly capture the human spirit of the model.
This may look like a black and white photo… but it is not. This was created using graphite on paper by the artist Terry Bostwick.
Believe it or not this is actually oil on canvas. another beautiful example of realism in art by a tattoo artist named David Parker. Now, where should I get my first glass jar and rag tattoo at?
When I think of pencils I tend to get flashbacks of filling in blanks on elementary school tests. For Erin Gergen it’s a different story. She completed this amazing piece of realism in art using only colored pencils. Now, what’s with the tiger balm? …
Cara DeAngelis is a talented young artist from Connecticut. She was born and raised in the harsh and wooded terrain of undomesticated Connecticut. Brought up in such exotic and feral conditions fueled her natural inclination toward the work she makes concerning wildlife, death and domestication. All of these were done with Oil on Canvas.
Tim Hawkinson crafted this skeleton out of his own fingernails and superglue. I had the pleasure of viewing his exhibit at the Getty in Los Angeles. What a wonderful example of throwing yourself into your work….
Julian Beever has been a “sidewalk” artist for over ten years, and has traveled all over the world. He is often hired as a performance artist and to create murals for companies as well. It would be amazing to see one of these in person!
This is a really great animated music video. The song is actually good too
