Ivan Prieto’s work got me searching for words. His surreal sculptures appear distressed, sad, often hideous to the eye. Their deformations reminds us of our own aches, pains and weaknesses that accompany us in life.

The artist lives and creates in Spain. He blogs here.

The work of Randi Antonsen is magnificent in many ways. I really respect that she experiments with various techniques and evolves her artwork in a variety of mediums. Here I’m only presenting you a small sample of her mixed media pieces, collages and paper sculptures.

A part of the artist’s statement: “I have a carefree but fully engaged approach to life and art. I find inspiration in the smallest of things because I “see” with these inquisitive and always looking for magic eyes. My work incorporates many approaches and mediums all in one, but then so does life.”

Joe Van Wetering explores the world of color and forms by creating visuals filled with energy. There is an inspiring balance that I appreciate in his works.



As I read in the artist’s site: “Inspired by the contrasting visions of pop culture and nature, Joe explores the continuously developing relationship between color and space, creating abstract visions of everyday life through his artwork”.

Inspiring and breathtaking are the detailed paper sculptures by Noriko Ambe that focus in observing the alteration of dynamic shapes and spaces.

A very interesting statement by the artist: “So to speak, I have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography. I want to attain something sublime. The entrance of the way is detail. The detail is the key point of nature, and we are part of nature. Even though the actions are simple, I do not try to draw / cut mechanical or perfect lines in my work, for subtle natural distortions convey the nuances of human emotions, habits, or biorhythm. For this reason, I take care to make all works by hand.

When I am drawing or cutting lines, I am interested in observing the power of the changing growing shape. This dynamic shape becomes an entity in itself, "Another geography." In a sense, the empty space is myself, and the materials represent the present world. Cutting book work is like collaboration for me. And it is important to choose the materials carefully because printed matter conveys a message automatically. The relationship between the linear actions and the materials is like the relationship between human beings and their restricted environment, a connection that is interested in me, too.”

Gorgeous paintings by Beatriz Martin Vital, a talented artist from Spain. Her work is whimsical, poetic and absolutely inspiring.



With an ability to capture emotion in both the expressions and movement of her subjects, she creates visual of a higher aesthetic level that makes us daydream. I particularly love the splendid use of textures in her pieces.
