We love these sweet pieces by Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi. Combining traditional illustration, watercolor and then adding embroidery, Suhaimi creates a subtle narrative between the traditional craftsmanship and contemporary subjects in these beautifully done pieces.
We’re loving the honest simplicity of these pieces by Inuit folk artist Kenojuak Ashevak. Seemingly borrowed from another time, her confident use of color and composition is really refreshing. These pieces are from her Birds series, courtesy of 50watts.
Ashevak passed this January at the age of 85. For more information about her read on:
“One of the best known and most acclaimed Inuit artists of the last 50 years, Kenojuak Ashevak, is being remembered by many across Canada this week….Ashevak began contributing to the famed Cape Dorset print collections in 1959, and […] contributed to them every year since, right up until the fall 2012 release.” [continue reading at Canadian Art]
The ”Paradise” Series
“These were the outcomes of my final degree project. I explored the theme of paradise, interpreting different people’s descriptions of their own individual paradise and then transforming them into otherworldly landscapes.”
Quirky and humorous illustrations by Brooklyn based artist Austin Ansbro.
Fantastic drawings by Toronto based artist Haejung Lee. Her work is beautifully composed and contains a subtle sense of humor that we really appreciate.
Beautiful drawings by Portuguese artist Cristina Troufa.
Our Issue Three artist, London based Greg Eason, has a fantastic solo show at The Contemporary London, and we are so excited for him! The show is titled Block Universe and has been getting him a lot of attention around the internet. The top images are shots of an installation that is part of the exhibition, and the other images are of his amazing pencil drawings.
A fantastic submission of paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chyrum Lambert. Although, calling these pieces simply paintings might not be giving them enough credit. They are all painted by hand in ink, dye, stain, acrylic, wax, epoxy and oil, and then some of them are cut with a blade and reformed/shaped into the finished product. We love their vibrant colors and tribal feel.
We got this great submission from Melbourne, Australia based artist Evie Cahir and we just had to share it. Evie is a young artist who is constantly sketching strangers and objects around her, and building an interesting portfolio of pencil drawings.
