In the case of Juan Osborne’s artwork, the famous saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is visualized through his illustrations!

I’m always delighted when I receive emails from artists who want to introduce me to their work. But Phresha’s vibrant paintings are a true eye candy I had to share. Fresh, bold, seductive, her female characters seem to draw you in with their dark – sometimes surreal charm.

I really had trouble in selecting the works I’d like to feature by Ian Macarthur! Everything is so amazing: intricate patterns and shapes that create a fantastic surreal visual wave, expressive faces and inspirational use of different media!

Here is a part from the artist’s statement: “My work is described as surreal and unique in its own way. Using mostly pencil, watercolors and pigment pens I create portraits of ordinary people but create them in a unusual way by embellishing patterns and watercolor effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect. Making there faces from something plain to something entirely bizarre and wonderful at the same time”.

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!



Make sure to check out the artist’s site for more inspiration!

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.

Simply breathtaking watercolor illustrations by Catherine Parr who is currently living and creating in Los Angeles. I am thrilled by her color combinations and the way the soft lines of pencil show beneath colored areas. Her fashion inspired characters are whimsical and sophisticated.

As the artist notes: “For me, inspiration comes from many places. Ealing Studios, French and Italian Cinema, along with music, theatre and dance.”

Check out her online shop at etsy for gorgeous prints.

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.
