I was deeply drawn in when I first set my eyes on Kate MacDowell’s phenomenal work! So surreal and fresh, delicate yet dark – natural yet distorted. The detail in her creations is simply amazing and the symbolic visual language used very powerful!

The intense portraits of women created by Brian Viveros are provocative, dark and draw you in with their captivating eroticism. His manic smoking subjects appear like they survived a fierce fight, and are captured posing vaguely, arrogantly with a mysterious and fixating gaze.

A very expressive and emotive collection of visuals with a wonderful color palette and urban feel!

When I first discovered Fred Einaudi and viewed his artwork I felt a chill going down my spine.


Juxtaposing and unexpected characters are found in surreal environments where the essence of devastation is prominent.



Einaudi’s portraits are an inspiring fusion of fears and visions, thus engage an almost futuristic character.

Artist's self portrait

Very emotive and expressive art by David Choe an artist who is active in a wide variety of both themes and mediums. I chose to present some of his oil and mixed media artworks because I strongly believe that his work is bound to captivate both your eyes and your mind.



Captivating, unsettling, almost cunning visions of the artist’s world of thoughts and inspirations, depicted either in a more abstract and minimal manner or interpreted in bold strokes, rough sketches and busy backgrounds! Enjoy!

Derek Weisberg’s sculptures overwhelm you with their raw emotional power. The artist notes in his statement: “I create works of art that are emotional and psychological self-portraits. Through my work I aim to make sense of my life, my experiences, and the times I live. I do not wish to represent like a photo, instead to achieve an innerness. My goal is to create images, which are accessible and allow the viewer to have an experience which can not be easily articulated, but felt. Simultaneously igniting contemplation, reflection and a lasting relationship with the work. I attempt to express basic human qualities, which are universal and timeless. At its core the works reflect humanist ideology; searching for truth and universal morality based on the commonality of the human condition.”

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.
