Cologne, Germany based light painting, photography and videography artists collective called LICHTFAKTOR keep rolling out amazing new works, each one more intricate and beautiful than the latter.

Artist -> Jeremy Geddesart

Jeremy Geddesart effortlessly spans the boundaries of reality with his works. His ability to render figures, light and color, is extraordinarily accurate, an then, he administers his own fantasies into the mix. Odd combination’s of lost astronauts and suicidal businessmen with fates unknown and unexplained tend to appear in many of his surreal images, leaving […]

All Babes are Wolves -> Kris Knight

I really like these mysterious portraits by Canadian born artist Kris Knight. Their muted color palette combined with the deadpan gaze of each subject draws me in and prompts me to analyze the emotion that has been captured by each skillful brush stroke. He has more works to share on his portfolio site.

The artwork of Pittsburgh native gone Californian Dave Kinsey is explosively dynamic, multilayered and deeply textured. His process involves a mix of brushed paint, spraypaint, markers and other mediums that work together really well. He’s got a bunch of his new works and old on his site to view. Great inspiration.

This collaborative animation by Blu and David Ellis is almost endless. layer after layer of surreal faces, shapes and mysterious happenings unfold and spill over an old abandoned courtyard offering pure entertainment for our eyes to soak up.

Edwin Ushiro -> Illustrator/Artist

Native Hawaiian (transplant to California) Edwin Ushiro attended the Art Center College of Design where he attained a BFA in Illustration. His technique, from what I have found, looks to be a combination of silk screen and layered hands on coloring and linework, leaving the end result to be reminiscent of a watercolor or guasch […]

Amy Casey -> Paintings

The most recent paintings by Erie, Pennsylvania born artist Amy Casey, to me, touch upon some interesting population density issues that we will no doubt begin to experience in our near future. I’m not sure if she’s also eluding to rising sea levels given all of the stilted structures she paints but my mind goes […]
