Eric Beltz makes drawings that plunge you into the religious rhetorical myths of the origin of America. Frontiers men going insane in their log cabins an axe in one hand the bible in the other, pagan ideas rising from the land.

leg of woman who dislikes me/A 2005.

Futo Akiyoshi creates this series of leg paintings, which resemble flags. We can detect a possible subtext here of cultural diversity,to these images he attaches the suggestive titles “leg of woman who dislikes me”,A,B,C,D etc this opens an experiential narrative which adds to their heterogenous, enigmatic nature.

Jorinde Voigt produces works that look like blueprints for strange complex happenings, this diagramatical feel is allied to a sense of rhythm and intensity for interesting results. The visual tradition of a diagrams is used to draw the viewer in in attempt to decipher, though rather than discovering any logical answers we join a less logical musing on line and rhythm.

I love these city panoramas from Abigail Daker. They have a large dose of realism from the observation and adherence to rules perspective , yet still retain the personality of the artist through her line.

Great lively observational line drawings from Eva Solano with the colours acidic yet subtle. The compositions are that of a sketch book riff, with an off the cuff yet ordered look.

Brian Dettmer takes what is fast becoming the arena of antiquity- the paper book and to coin a modern term ‘remixes’ it. He seals the book by glueing the edges then with scalpel cuts back into the layers and reselects from what the author originally decided to commit to paper. The works are serendipitous collages and at the same time sculptural objects that delight in their physicality. The book goes beyond its information bearing function- giving these historical items new meanings.

The homeless drowning in the concrete as the city sucks them down! Great digitally manipulated images from Christophe Huet letting the imagination run free with the concepts and then fine technical realisation.

Mind trips from BLU

COMBO a collaborative animation by Blu and David Ellis (2 times loop) from blu on Vimeo.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.

Amazing mind trips from BLU, if your not familiar with his work he makes monumental wall animations that spread and sprawl across the urban landscape. Endlessly quirky and creative the mind is given free reign to riff as it pleases. The buildings and walls are the canvas and also props in the narrative,the paintings morph and melt across this framework as we see the city in a different light.

Street art Uruguay

A lovely collaboration between Pablo S. Herrero and David de la Mano in Montevideo, Uruguay. Street art with a bold surrealist illustrative flavour.

Francis Hollenkamp



Francis Hollenkamp

Brooklyn-based artist Francis Hollenkamp created an art installation comprised of 10,000 little green and brown plastic toy soldiers! The miniature military forces are lined up evenly into squared rows and columns, separated by weapon of choice. Hollenkamp’s intention with this piece is to present a visual representation of a large group that is usually an abstract figure in our minds.

Even looking from afar, the soldiers blend and camouflage into each other, as if they are one entity. It is only upon closer inspection that we begin to recognize each individual soldier. It’s very difficult to manufacture an image in one’s own mind of a statistical number, especially when that number is large. For example, there are seven billion people in the world (and counting), but how does one calculate and visualize a number of that magnitude?

Steve Longwill’s (test4design) semiotic deconstruction fanzine, the layout is based around a horizontal gutter roughly a third up the golden rectangle recto and verso pages. The play of the changing proportions of the images and type blocks, and colour and weight of the font adds dynamic rhythm to the content.
