I came across this artist named Sandra Eterovic on Etsy and was super entertained by her quirky, but beautiful artworks. Sandra has worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. She now works as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that she makes can be found in her Etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
Bianca Brand is a young talented illustrator from Cape Town who is currently showing at Wolves cafe. Her exhibition ‘Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife’ started last week Friday and is such a visual treat for the eyes. Bianca’s dark subject matter which is set in bright and fun colours really contrast one another, but in the best possible way.
The show is made up of 12 prints altogether and they are being sold in limited editions of 3. On the opening night, she had already reach the 2nd edition on nearly all of them, so if something catches your eye here, mail me quick sticks.
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?
