“I reside in two places. One is the good old real world; the second is a virtual space that looks forward. The future depends on technology and aims at functionality. The past relies upon beliefs and deals with unfathomable deities. I explore the collision between these extremes.”
Digital artist @obscurumfabulous aka Seryozha Parshakov, explores spaces in between: For this piece, he focused on the intersection of nature and technology in the future, where “technology became nature itself”.
‘Someplace New’ - a place where we can accept and face our demons and enjoy the peace with our sisters!
@pollynor is known for her satirical and often dark drawings that depict themes of identity, relationships, mental health, and an individual’s existence in society (and the pressure that comes with it).
“My teachers in the visual arts were the photographers and lighting technicians of the old Hollywood studio system. I learned how to draw and paint from vintage movie stills. I learned how to make an image tell stories from watching those old movie stills come to life on late-night TV in the days before infomercials and reality shows.”
@officialtroybrooks with ‘Adonata’, a glamorous and seductive beauty in coloured pencil on paper. Look closely into these stunning eyes and dive into this depth; we guarantee you a moment away from reality!
Time to escape the rabbit hole: @marc_burckhardt with the right wishes and energy for 2022! This painting really resonates with the current situation: Observing the situation carefully, evaluating the situation and being ready (or, let’s say, prepared) to move back inside. Do you feel me? 😞
The character design of @tahraart is from another world: Cyberpunk creatures, fantasy warriors, or just a casual (yet special) human being - Kyounghwan Kim offers a wide range of diverse personalities and their stories.
Strangely cute and intriguingly complex: @kanemaki_yoshitoshi’s wood sculptures tell stories of confusion, inconsistency and multiplicity. Yoshitoshi employs the traditional Japanese technique of ‘Ichiboku-Zukuri’ forming one log into a one-piece sculpture.
This peaceful and calm energy is contagious. @aqualisa creates stunning paintings, juxtapositions of still lives and animal portraits that flow in and out of each other and grow together. Lisa Ericson shares about this piece: “I started this piece in October 2020. Was I using art as a bit of therapy? Maybe just a little. And it’s still resonating with me today as I wonder when we’ll all get to come out of our foxholes and be together again.”
