**Even Kevin’s temporary work in bathrooms is AMAZING!!….I’m fond of these white on black versions….be sure to check him out on his website HERE….and follow him on the tumblr….HERE….

The Artists on Tumblr List is aimed at creating even more access to artists using this platform. You WANT to support your fellow artists by following, liking, and reblogging their art. I’ve made it easy for you to find them, now you just gotta click!

What is absolutely wonderful about this initial group of 10 individuals - is that they are all the first artists I followed on Tumblr three years ago. 

1. angrywhistler - “Self taught artist from Redwood City, California currently living on the Island of Hawaii.” (x)

2. lisasolberg - “An expressionistic painter and installation artist in Los Angeles.” (x)

3. annctart - “Her style sees influences in expressionism, neo-expressionism, actionism and surrealsim, the latest more in her prose accompany Ann’s work in most of her exhibitions. Prior to relocating to New Zealand, Ann has worked as a biochemist and biotechnologist for an international pharmaceutical company, the last two years as a Lean/Kaizen specialist and project manager.” (x)

4. paulbaileyart - “The farming landscape which surrounds my home has been my predominant source of inspiration over the past couple of years: low rolling hills; intermittent woodland; ancient hedgerows; patch-work fields and vast skies. The semi-abstract nature of my work, my use of non-traditional techniques, my bold compositions and my dynamic use of colour help portray this seemingly prosaic landscape in a new, vivid and surprising way.” (x)

5. laurafabrellas - photography

6. tchmo - “I mash things up.” (x)

7. lucasbeaufort - “I’m a real skate rat. I love to spend time watching stuff on Internet. There are so many things today, not easy to stay on top.
I’m pretty nostalgic of the 90s. When a skate video came out it was crazy. I guess that what emerges from my art comes from the 90s.” (x

8. nellallen - Multi-media artist/painting

9. christian-hetzel - “My work focuses on texture and abstract color(-field) compositions. Most based on traditional media and techniques, such as canvas, paper, timber board, painted with acrylic and mixed media. Besides this, I create also intermedial artworks, this means analog paintings are used for digital modifying process to create a total new artwork.” (x)

10.  sevenknotwind / kevin-townsend - “I am driven by issues surrounding memory, its formation, storage and subsequent degradation over time. I am consumed with thoughts regarding the ways in which we are marked by time and the way that memory becomes the architecture of our identity.” (x

I almost forgot…
I updated my theme at the beginning of the week and so far I’m really liking it.
I especially like the post page that now shows large avatar images and includes facebook comments for those of you that do that sort of thing. (at some point I’ll have to cave in and make a facebook page for my work- the only problem is that I hate facebook)

find the theme here if you’re interested
