Kirstin Lamb – Colorful Installations

Pop and bright!

I really enjoyed the amazing installations by The American artist Kirstin Lamb.

As a lover and collector of vintage ephemera of any kind, Kristin recreates that sense of retro style into her paintings, in both of her abstract and portraits works. After that, she arranges each art piece into a room, creating beautiful and colorful installations of paintings that “speak” to each other.

You can find Kristin on Facebook and Instagram too.

Ekaterina Panikanova – Paintings On Books

Dreamy!

The Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova realises unique installation-paintings with a collage twist. The artist paints beautiful black ink and acrylics illustrations using as a canvas plenty of vintage found book pages.

These books are mounted on board, and the final result is a kind of collage-patchwork of pages that showcase a giant final image. You can also check her works here and here.

 

 

Inspired – Hattie Stewart

Amazing!

Enjoy the pop-surreal doodles on cover magazine by the London based illustrator Hattie Stewart.

Inspired – David Fullarton

Love!

I just became a big fan of David Fullarton‘s artworks.

His pieces are a mix and match of beautiful sketches combined with words, that are also mixed media collages.

 

Valentin van der Meulen – Erased Portraits

Amazing!

These detailed large scale charcoal drawings by the French artist Valentin van der Meulen are a true beauty. The particular thing that transforms this artworks into something more interesting, is the “final act”.

Once the drawing is completed, Valentin partially erases what he has done, creating a disappearing image. This concept suits very well with the internet era and the digital memory in general.

 

Sofia Bonati Illustrations

So colorful!

I love the beautiful female portrait illustrations by the Argentinian, but UK based, artist Sofia Bonati.

 

Hannah Ward – Creepy Forest

Fascinating!

Enjoy the amazing artworks about “cute and creepy” forest wildlife by Hannah Ward.

Last batch!

Enjoy my new abstract collages from my “Getting Rid Of The Shit” series. You can see the entire collection on my Artfinder online gallery.

Abstract Collages 001

New!

During this summer I am experimenting a little bit with abstract collages, a thing that I always wanted to do and now become a real thing. I am basically doing what I always did, putting abstract forms and lines, but this time not using an existing image as a starting point, but a blank sheet of paper.

The reason why I wanted to do some abstract stuff was also because tons of pens that I have at home cannot be used over a photographic surface, and this got me a little bit frustrated. Since I have so much pens to use, why don’t start to use a different surface?

For this reason is born “Getting Rid Of the Shit Series“, a long sequence of small and medium (and now they are getting big too!) collages composed by geometric and organic forms. As I always do, my life background, what I love and a pinch of subconscious are present in these works too.

I would love to have your opinion about these brand new stuff, I hope to hear from you guys! I will release about 10 pieces per week (if I remember to prepare the posts, ahah), so you can check and see the evolution of these artworks.
