On the way to Kamtchatka “As a child, I made a collage that looked quite similar. I love sheep. Having sheep on the roof symbolises reconciliation with nature.”
German graphic designer Matthias Jung first constructed “surreal homes” as a boy, using scissors and glue in his father’s photo lab.
Land of evening “The ‘balloon’ in this image is from a photograph of a Gothic church I took in the small French city of Wissembourg. The landscape is a swamp area near the border with Poland.”
Taking photographs from his travels, Jung creates incongruous images that are intended to challenge perceptions of space and architecture. “Collages are like dreams,” he says, “or maybe dreams are like collages”
Audrey Kawasaki, one of our favorite artists, is back with her latest series titled Hirari Hirari, which translates from Japanese as “the sound or movement of a petal, leaf, or flower slowly falling.”
Using her signature medium of oil, graphite, and ink on wood panels, the Los Angeles-based painter creates gorgeous depictions of dreamy and enigmatic young women.
Kawasaki’s newest work is inspired by kimonos given to the artist by her mother.
Borrowing the colors and natural motifs found in the traditional Japanese garments, the stunning paintings are filled with vibrant hues, striking flowers and birds, and the fluid lines found in wind and water.
Simultaneously contemporary and traditional, innocent and sensual, the young women’s graceful bodies and delicate features blend seamlessly with the flowing imagery, yet stand out with their bold outlines.
Conceptual artist and illustrator Gediminas Pranckevicius posesses an imagination to covet.
While most of his digital painting is centered around character design, his larger landscapes seen here are rich in detail, creating impossible but ingenious juxtapositions of water, land, and haphazard architecture.
You can see more of his work over on Facebook, and all of these are available as prints via INPRNT.
