Are you getting fire starter vibes....perhaps the uneasy sense that this girl is two hot seconds away from obliterating everything that she sets her sights on?
This is precisely what British mixed-media artist Ian Francis (@ianfrancisart) does SO WELL - he instantly pulls us into the "awwww, hellll noooo!' action, toying with our emotions...making us forget that we're staring at a painting rather than a horrifying real-world event unfolding before our television-glazed eyes.
For art to give us white knuckles and a bit of a torn up bottom lip speaks volumes about his crash-bang-boom narrative prowess.
🌟Ian Francis' latest solo show, "Ancient Rites and Rituals, Begun Again", is now in full swing at @kirkgallery through Saturday, February 5!🌟
🔥🧯Want to see a video of this YIKES mixed media painting, "Elevator Lobby Arrival"? (Yes...you do!)
🔥🧯Want more details about Ian's smashing solo show? (Pssht. Of course!)

"It is the year 2015, and I'm speed sculpting this guy for my first project with @joe_r_perez, without any respect for human anatomy. He is a mess (not Joe, but the sculpture), and I'd do it again." A mess or not - we love this piece by @hxandt! The expression and the posture speak more than a million words; this sculpture tells a story of pain and agony.
Digital artist @elena.sai summons a vibe with her pieces - often, it is pretty dark energy! This mermaid and her appearance are hauntingly beautiful...check out her scales and skin texture. But, better don't look too deep into her empty eyes: you might get lost within!
