The Athletic Artworks Of Stephanie Lopez.


Recently I came across the fantastical illustrations of artist Stephanie Lopez of Wilmington, CA.  She’s a CSUEB grad who has a passion for basketball (that definitely translates into her work).  Having an extremely detailed, and slightly caricatured style of drawings, the artist better known as “2Craft” and her works tend to reflect athletes from basketball players to boxers.  From famous movies, to great moments in sports to celebrities, her “Michael Tudor-esque” style of art is definitely work checking out further.  Luckily… you can do that right here.

The Incredible Artwork of Thomas Cian.


It hasn’t been until recently that the team discovered the work of Thomas Cian, but when we did, we were blown away by the intricacies of his portraits.  Take a look below of his incredible pencil work, and creative portrait design.

Mateusz Lengling.


Photographers and photo editors rarely capture the unique and captivating images that Poland’s Mateusz Lengling is able to.  With what seems like just simple photo slices Lengling’s artwork provides a rich and unforgettable feast for the eyes.  Check out a cross section of his work.

Disney Is Taking Over ‘Game Of Thrones’?!


No, they’re not. We’re just kidding.  But if you’ve ever wondered what ‘Game of Thrones’ would look like as a Disney animated film? Fernando Mendonca and Anderson Mahanski, two incredibly talented artists, have taken a stab at it.  It is BRILLIANT.

Somewhere in the city of Badajoz, Spain, Lola Dupre is taking the style of collages to an entirely new level. Her incredible warped and twisted creations, are a step beyond “caricature” and are an entity of their own. Lola’s arsenal consist of scanning, a digital camera, scissors, and paper adhesive.  Check out her work below.

Toasted Pets?

Every once in a  while, you see promotional artwork that catches your eye, but the item or object the promotion is for escapes you.  Brosmind out of Barcelona, Spain, have designed the “Toasted Pets” series.  “The cutest way to keep your favorite things” is the tagline, but I’m still not exactly sure what they are.  Upon discovering the promotional video below, I was even more perplexed as to why a Spanish company would create their ad in broken English using a think Japanese accent, but HEY, normal is boring.  Made in aluminum, leather, wood and plastic, the first exclusive edition of 50 copies. Price: €130.

Rainbows, honeycombs, pixels and even famous Japanese works of art — there’s almost nothing Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed can’t recreate using a few brushes and a variety of lipsticks.  Going by the name Girl Grey Beauty, Reed is known for sharing drool-worthy lip art creations as well as handy beauty tutorials. It’s painful to admit, but her works really made us realize we have no game whatsoever when it comes to primpin’.  Reed, among other incredible makeup gurus, really pushes the limits of modern art, showing that it no longer belongs solely in galleries and museums, but can be found in the most unexpected places, even a human face.

Seoul, Korea is the home to many a talented artist, but Kim Byungkwan rolls in a lane of his own.  His collection of black and white, stylized, and almost eerie works are titled “Memories 1940’s”.  The faceless, fluid, and frightening acrylic paintings are all reminiscent of the time period, and are just a small portion of Byungkwan’s full collection of works.  To see more of Kim’s work, just click here.

What’s A Raumzeichnungen?


raumzeichnung01 raumzeichnung03 SONY DSC

German artist Monika Grzymala`s three-dimensional drawings are taking over the space. For her, drawing is visualized thinking. She is starting her works from scratch, developing huge installations made of black tape that seem to burst on the walls, taking over the gallery space. Grzymala creates vivid artworks that become accessible for the viewer and suggest new perspectives for a usually two-dimensional drawing.

Some people love looking at x-ray images, there’s just something about seeing the inner anatomy of bodies that fascinates the mind.  The images pictured in this post are somewhat of a re-imagination of the innards of technology.  At first glance I’m sure they appeared somewhat grotesque, but thats because the insides are based off human parts.  Crazy concept, better execution.  Check the method.

Patrick Seymour’s ‘Gremlins’.


df4c50ee40b2d7af3e4b2b8414e9e382There haven’t been many cult classics that have disturbed youth and humored 80’s adults since Joe Dante’s ‘Gremlins’.  The odd tale of a little creature who lives a life by very specific rules has become a small staple in American culture since 1984.  30 years later in 2014, digital artist Patrick Seymour has used his skills to re-invent the protagonist and antagonist of the film.  Check out his visualizations of Gizmo and Stripe below.

Li Hongbo Is Probably The Reason You’re Out Of Paper.


li-hongbo_3-620x347

Li Hongbo is one of most gifted sculptors in recent memory.  His medium is a bit unconventional however.  A book editor and designer, Li became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures.

The Pure Beauty Of Facial Paralysis.

After spending three months at a facial nerve clinic in Boston, photographer Sage Sohier left more knowledgable, having gained more insight on facial paralysis. With her, the photographer also took several visual mementos of patients she has met seeking treatment for their conditions. Her powerful portrait series titled About Face presents a number of people dealing with varying degrees of facial paralysis who have bravely overcome their vulnerability, if even for a brief moment, to “smile for the camera.”
