Hauntingly beautiful and provocative imagery by talented & young artist Sylvia Ji. Beauty is expressed in a decaying manner and a veil of mystery implies that something disturbing or mysterious is about to happen.

I just love the intensity of her subject’s eyes in this painting series. I definitely urge you to click and visit her site for more breathtaking art!

Fresh typography by Jessica Hische, a young talented typographer and illustrator from Brooklyn.

Her work is elegant, playful and very communicative. As she mentions in her online bio she started designing type out of necessity: “I was broke in college and couldn’t afford to go on an awesome font spending spree and didn’t have the time to pour through the free font sites for something actually worth using. I noticed in school that my hand drawn type would make the project feel more cohesive and special, so I tried to make custom type as much as possible for projects. Now, almost everything I make has hand-lettering in it. One major disadvantage to being good at hand-lettering is that I am TERRIBLE at picking out fonts for projects. Every time I’ve needed a crazy display font for something, I’ve just made it myself because it takes me less time to make it than it does to scour the internet for something good. Don’t ask me to recommend a similar font to anything I’ve made, I won’t know what to tell you and then I’ll feel like a lame designer.”

Meowza’s illustrations are probably the definition of cuteness! Awesome little characters come to life through beautifully colored drawings. A sweet message by the artist invites one to take a further look in this magic little universe: Hi! I'm meowza and I like to draw pictures of cats, pandas, rabbits, trees, and yellow things.”

Prints are available in meowza’s etsy shop and a wider collection of artwork is uploaded here: http://www.meowza.org/art.html

Ryan
, the artist behind Berkley Illustration creates original animal portraits.


The only difference is that these wonderfully depicted creatures pose as humans, wear clothes and have a sparkling personality of their own!

A very fresh idea and I must also note that his collection has been a major etsy success, having almost 15.000 print sales since 2007! WOW!

Conversing with Artifacts
Kukula is one of my top fav artists. Born in an isolated village north of Tel Aviv, her artwork is both influenced by classical art forms and contemporary pop culture. Dreamy feminine, mostly doll-like characters are depicted in surrealistic backgrounds and surrounded by symbolic objects.

Dolls Maker
The paintings (oil on board) shown here are from her “Immortal Artifacts” series.

Kukula notes “Many people say that my characters resemble dolls. For me dolls represent immortal youth. But they are also the remains of something that has passed, and when they are antiques, of someone who has died. The first antique doll I bought was one produced by the German-Jewish firm Kammer & Reinhardt at the beginning of the twentieth century. While this delicate bisque doll survived two world wars, both the manufacturer and the original owner are gone forever. So the very immortality of any artifact is always reminiscent of the death of something intimately connected to it. As I began making sketches for this exhibition I realized that precisely because art is immortal it is also morbid. Art survives—it carries within traces of its dead producer. So it represents not only the eternal, but also the ephemeral. Art becomes artifact. Being the crumby narcissist that I am, I have noticed that I produce art in order to leave my own artifacts—in other words, my own death mask. And so the whole process of painting becomes rather macabre, like writing your own requiem.”

“How far is too far” is the title of Eva Mitala’s second
solo exhibition in Greece. With a fabulous series of acrylic
paintings the artist seeks to depict the urban side and
highlight the magic-realistic moments of daily life in Tokyo.
Picture
By adding and/or subtracting stylized forms, she captures
the essence of the city which bursts with visual noise and
highlights the pure energy and emotion that hides within.

Everybody is familiar with Shepard Fairey’s work. His famous OBEY sticker campaign as well as the HOPE Obama Poster are two of his major achievements.

As he mentions in 1990 “The OBEY sticker attempts to stimulate curiosity and bring people to question both the sticker and their relationship with their surroundings. Because people are not used to seeing advertisements or propaganda for which the product or motive is not obvious, frequent and novel encounters with the sticker provoke thought and possible frustration, nevertheless revitalizing the viewer’s perception and attention to detail. The sticker has no meaning but exists only to cause people to react, to contemplate and search for meaning in the sticker. Because OBEY has no actual meaning, the various reactions and interpretations of those who view it reflect their personality and the nature of their sensibilities”.

What I love about his work is the draftsmanship of his forms and textures. Striking visuals that dare you to look in order to convey a very clear and strong message.
