Marks Sign

marks-sign-20

Shane has a friend called Mark who is the most amazing local artist who paints pretty much anything you can imagine. He was the talented hands behind Desmond and The Tutus’ second album cover and made us the best family portrait (before our Neens came along).

The thing about Mark is that you can show him absolutely anything, any photo, any typeface, any reference and he’ll make it for you in his crazy talented style. So Shane knowing just how talented this man is has made it his mission to help get Mark’s name out there by helping him start an online business, because more people need to see and OWN Mark’s work.

Mike Dargas was born in 1983 in Cologne and he responsible for these huge photo realistic oil paintings.

They are so well done they almost bring tears to my eyes.

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.

Kirsten Tradowsky

This is the work of American based artist Kirsten Tradowsky. Her paintings are her way of travelling back in time to another space and time, for inspiration she collects old photos and visits places that are slowly being engulfed by the new world.

I think her work is great, it makes me feel like I’m paging through an old family album made up of memories of a world that has long since been forgotten.
