Ethereal collages by talented Alexis Mackenzie who has been selecting hand-cut images from books for many years and recomposing them into inspiring artworks.

As the artist mentions “It is a meditative process, and there is a lot of decision-making behind each element involved. My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed thing of beauty - a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match”.

I’m an incredible fan of Audrey Kawasaki’s inspiring artwork.

Her enigmatic and charming manga influenced figures are drawn on wood panels, giving the artwork a fine natural and atmospheric touch.

I discovered Ken Garduno as I was browsing the net and I was pleasantly surprised by his unique sketching style and awesome illustration skills.

I really love the soft, dreamy and yet dark essence of his characters.

The artist has graduated from the Art Center College of Design in California and participated in numerous exhibitions.

Really looking forward to viewing new work by Ken.

Taxidermy is the act of mounting or reproducing dead animals for display, while Crochet is the process of creating fabric from yarn or thread. The Crochetdermy project of Shauna Richardson is an original combination of the two. The UK based artist creates animals in life size scale, a process that may last even months.

I really like the photographs with her animal creations placed in various urban areas.

Mark Gmehling is the creator of this awesome, surreal looking 3D characters! Specialized in Character Design and animation the artist unfolds his imagination in order to create wickedly cool illustrations that seem to have a life of their own.

I’d definitely love to see some of those in vinyl!

Tetsuya Ishida was unfortunately hit by a train and died at the age of 31, leaving behind approximately 180 artworks he had created during the last 10 years of his art career.

The characters in his paintings are often depicted sad and despaired with their bodies captured in some machine or other object and it is said that the artist attempted to depict the dark side of Japanese life through his surreal visions.

Amazing wire sculptures by artist Frank Plant. The artist often experiments with various techniques that incorporate wooden backgrounds, light boxes, sensors, sounds and music in his 3d pieces, seeking for alternative ways of visual communication with viewers.

Don’t be fooled! These are not canvas paintings, but real people painted by the hand of talented and innovative installation artist Alexa Meade.

Balancing between perception and reality she paints on live models, 3d surfaces and various objects and incorporates her creations into various installations that urge the viewer to experience an alternate perspective of her art.

The work of Sayaka Ganz is in my opinion the ultimate definition of recycle art. These magnificently assembled sculptures are made of various kind of materials such as plastic, utensils, toys and metal pieces among other things.

The artist notes: “My goal is for each object to transcend its origins by being integrated into an animal form that seems alive. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist.
By building these sculptures I try to understand the human relationships that surround me. It is a way for me to contemplate and remind myself that even if there is conflict right now, there is a way for all the pieces to fit together. That even if some people don’t feel at home here and now, there is a place where they belong and that they will eventually find it.”

Mark Ryden’s work is simply phenomenal. A secret paradise where weird little characters with a fascination for the obscure and freaky reside. Seemingly innocent children are depicted in the most contradicting manner along with often vicious symbols or strange sights of the natural world.


Ryden’s work is most certainly striking. There is so much going on in his pieces that one can stare for hours and still discover hidden detailed aspects. A masterful work that has gained recognition in the modern art arena.
