His first experiments in paper sculpture began in 1984 and once he mixed his love for wildlife, he realized his technique was definitely suited towards animal sculptures with paper.

From that day ...

Jeremy Geddes – Painter

Amazing talent out of Australia, Jeremy, who has only been painting for approx. 10 years, has truly mastered the art of realism. At first I thought I was looking at actual photographs but realized after further reading they are paintings.

Viewing his extraordinary hyperrealistic paintings are definitely worthy of a trip to New York’s Jonathan Levine Gallery. His work ...

Mark Jenkins – Installation Artist

I think Mark’s street installations are the most amusing I’ve ever seen. Hilarious and thought provoking. He developed an interesting technique to create casts of any object using tape. After taping objects, his creative process moved onto taping himself and others to produce translucent people. Then he moved from translucent to actually dressing these people and situating them around the ...

Christopher Haas – Sculptor

Bringing the dead back to life is one of Chris’ talents. His paintings are cute but his sculptures are exquisite indeed.

He began as an avid collector of animal skulls but eventually realized they could become much more than the memory of what used to be. Using a variety of mediums, he turns them into ornate, colourful and mystic wall sculptures ...

Cane Dojcilovic – Painter

Born in Serbia but works and lives in New York City, Cane’s incredibly detailed pencil drawings are what caught my eye. Fragments of faces and bodies unravelling. I respect any artist who tackles pencil due to the time and patience one must have to create a beautifully shaded, highly detailed piece. His paintings are just as interesting too but I’m ...

Brendan lives/works in California and produces paintings as well as sculptures. I prefer his paintings but some of his sculptures are interesting too.

What I like about some of his paintings is ...

Eric Daigh – Portraitist

What strikes me about this artist’s choice of medium is it’s simplicity. No mess of paints, no choice of hundreds of colours or brushes etc. You can choose round heads or flat in 5 basic colours and that’s it. How Eric Daigh came up with this idea is what intrigues me the most. Was it out of boredom one day? ...

Christopher Boffoli – Photographer, artist, writer, filmmaker

Christopher is a Seattle based photographer, writer, artist and filmmaker. Upon first glimpse of his collection titled “Big Appetites”, I thought I was viewing photos taken with a tilt-shift lens. Duh, obviously there are no gigantic strawberries or pasta shells that real people would be sitting or standing atop.

Quite clever this collection if you also read the captions that go ...
