Bill Mayer is a wonderful graphic designer and painter from Decatur, Georgia. His painters are surreal images that often place
animals and insects in gothic costumes. They
are darkly humorous but at the same time nightmarish. Under the section About on his website Bill puts under #12:
12.I believe right now there is a bearded guy in a striped shirt trying to break into your house you should stop reading this and call the police.

In his recent exhibition, No Place Like Home, artist Sam Octigan explores travel as a metaphor for life. Using his signature color palette, his figurative works focus on our desire for change and the contradictory need to maintain stability by setting down roots and understanding ones past.

MAN W01 ILL 2015 The intention of these portraits is not a realistic recording of a persons features. They are an attempt to catch his very identity and radiation on his environment. The vulnerability of the human being is always emphasized. If you are interested in painting a portrait, please, let me know by e-mail ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or by phone ( +32 3 777 6776 ).

A little different to my usual approach. I stumbled across french artist “Lea Riviere” on pinterest (Who has a similar style to another favourite french artist “Benedicte Gele” who’s work I always admire!) Was feeling inspired for a more sketchy and loose approach - Feedback appreciated!
Would love to actually make it in the real world as a full time artist one day! Preferably before i’m 25 ;)
Please help me do that with social media exposure and like my page on Facebook

female in post-feminist contemporary society” (Lia Skidmore. April,

We at Mimi Berlin feel that these pictures are a bit old-fashioned. (in
a good sense, we like them) We’ve learned that these women are wearing
vintage dresses. That figures, it’s fashionable! via:mimiberlinblog
Durdy Bayramov was an academic and artist who was awarded the highest honorary title in his country: “People’s Artist of Turkmenistan”.
The depiction of fruit in Bayramov’s still lifes symbolizes the bounty of nature and his love for his native land’s fruit in particular. He often depicted fruit arranged on traditional Turkmen carpets, which feature gol woven motifs and vibrant colors, and on Turkmen ornamental felt called keche. Bayramov was also passionate about painting flowers, particularly red poppies that brighten the foothills of Turkmenistan every spring are featured in many of his paintings. Bayramov’s belief that “nature is our sanctuary” is illustrated in his landscapes.
