Lara Meintjes – Floral Interiors

Colours explosion!

The South African artist Lara Meintjes paintings “wink” back to Matisse artworks, especially the still life ones.

But Lara adds a personal touch to each piece, creating bright interior design compositions and still life flower arrangements full of life. I can see a perfect rainbow unicorn universe in them!

You can also see her works on Saatchi Art, and follow her on Instagram.


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.

Joshua Flint – Between Familiar And Unknown

Super amazing!

The artworks by the American artist Joshua Flint hide a lot of research, that come from many sources as art history, vintage shops and social media platforms. Below an artist statement about his way to work:

My work is based on images curated from many sources such as digitized museum archives, vintage shops, and social media platforms. The paintings fluctuate between the familiar and the unknown while simultaneously including the past and present. By rearranging the hierarchy of elements the paintings become fictions that allow countless interpretations. Layered into works are references to liminality, ecological issues, neuroscience, psychological states, and the history of painting, among others.

The images sourced from out-of-date materials hold a special fascination. Much like observing the ruins of an old, grand building or a church in a state of decay, the characters and objects that populate his paintings are employed to create a sense of ephemerality, imbuing the work with a kind of fascination and disquiet, over the passage of time. Used in this way they serve as reminders that cutting edge trends and novelty will evolve into new iterations or be abandoned altogether. Using these sources for my paintings allows a certain distance to reinterpret as I see fit. I can see this person or place in a photograph but know nothing about what is going on beyond those paper borders. That ambiguity, between the seen and unseen, between the real and the imaginary, is where my paintings live.

Paintings by Jeroen Blok


I love the sense of dark nostalgia behind these pieces.

The Dutch artist Jeroen Blok uses a neutral palette of beige, black and white colours, to realise dreamy portraits.  The solitary subjects of his paintings seems to come out from a quirky circus of some sort.

Ekaterina Panikanova – Paintings On Books


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.



Portraits by Alejandra Atarés Abad


I truly love the unusual portrait paintings created by the Spanish artist Alejandra Atarés Abad.

The artist creates a series of solitary female portraits seen from their back. The subjects contemplate colorful landscapes that perfectly match with their clothes!

Ann Smart – The Black Series


I totally fell in love with The Black Series paintings by the Canadian artist Ann Smart. Each piece is a manipulated glossy fashion shot, where mainstream model shots has been turned into deep-dark subjects.

You can take a look to her works on Saatchi Art, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
