Hattie Stewart is an illustrator slash doodler whose work makes me feel happy and like I’m seeing Tom and Jerry in real life. Her illustration is so playful and unique and I really think she has a cool style.
Check out these absolutely bizarre, but really interesting paintings by Taipei based artist Shih Yung-Chun.
– Shih Yung-Chun paints surreal re-imaginings of everyday scenes, where adults occupy themselves with strange activities like bored kids creating their own games during summer vacation. Puppets, dolls, animals, and figurines are recurring motifs in Shih’s world, which seems believable yet slightly off balance. The Taipei-based artist inserts autobiographical snippets in many of the paintings: Some of his scenes are set in his own house and he and his white French bulldog make occasional appearances. Shih has referred to his works as “soap operas,” hinting at their highly fictionalised nature. Take a look at some of his work below.
I have some great news for you art lovers. A while back Lara Meintjes had an exhibition at Wolves that showcased her ‘peculiar creatures’ as she likes to call them, her quirky watercolor paintings of half animals and half humans. By the end of the show not one half animal/human was left hanging on the wall, they had all found homes because they were so super awesome.
Andy Rementer is an artist from the US, he is attracted to the past and loves hand made typography, vintage colors and flea market finds. I first saw his awesome hand-made and hand-painted wooden characters on Booooooom. You can change all the pieces around so you can create different characters or abstract sculptures, how cool?
The other day a lovely young lass by the name of Maria Magdalena sent myself and NJ a little parcel in the mail. Inside it was a beautiful limited edition print called ‘Alice’ from her Wander Collection. She drew it to represent the unconditional and overwhelmingly instant love that she felt for her baby niece that was born on 14 September 2014 – I think I can relate to that feeling.
Nina has a whole bunny collection going in her room, so this print fits right in perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, it’s whimsical and detailed and so pretty and it makes for such a nice piece in her room.
The quirky duo from Paper Jet Design are putting on a exhibition called Super Neat at Wolves Cafe starting tonight. They’re going to have all sorts of wonderful and fun original silkscreen prints available and a awesome limited edition zines. They’re also going to be live printing stuff on the night, so come stock up on out of the ordinary, rad Christmas gifts, yes? Yes.
Show starts at 6pm tonight and will run till mid-Jan, but you will be able to pick up your purchases before Wolves closes for the festive season (±14th Dec)…See you later
