Entranced by the cover of Olaf Hajek’s newest book , we delved into his portfolio and fell entranced. He has an abundance of stunning artworks – trying to edit this post down to just these seven pieces was incredibly difficult. So be sure to check out his other work on his site ( link below.) Olaf creates a world of surreal fantasy and melancholic beauty – full of flora, fauna and fanciful headdresses juxtaposed with the human condition.
Fatima Ronquillo’s paintings are a wonderfully eclectic combination of many styles – old masters, folk art, classical European portraiture and surrealism. We love the roundness and friendliness of her subjects, especially when combined with the added surprise of surreal elements and sarcasm.
Kate Zambrano paints pretty pictures of pretty models with pretty intense attitudes.
Staring you down, giving you the evil eye or just that “come hither” look – smoldering with dare and rebellion.
Jose Maria Rodriguez Madoz, better known as Chema Madoz, is a Spanish photographer. He has a witty and clever approach to his imagery, carefully thinking out beforehand the visual theme of certain objects – some with a pun or a twisted illusion. Manipulated and strange still-lives, they also seem like a viable reality, at first glance.
Steven J Daily has a deft artist’s hand, a vivd imagination and just enough twisted visions to keep it interesting.
Our eyes are grateful for the great gloom of Anton Semenov projected in his fierce art. Anton’s alias name is Gloom82 and his portfolio is quite full of impending doom and gorgeous gloom. Wonderfully grim and full of texture, his art is a desperate peek into and from the dark.
