Andreas Englund and the disenchanted hero

Where the real rational scientific world takes away the everlasting & impenetrable fantasy of our hero. I think Andreas has captured a really strong personality in his artwork. Enjoy.

Vania Zouravliov

There is something so whole captivating about Vania’s work. I find myself mumbling religious profanities when I stumble onto some of his pieces, so good. I had the chance to buy one of his prints but didn’t as it was just a little too expensive at the time… I wish I had. To make up for that I did buy this today: Vania: Extended Version. He is also an author which is something I only recently learnt. You will find his book on Amazon – Please note that it is reading for the more opened minded.  (Here is an older post).


 

 

 


Brooke Shaden

Seeing Halloween is around the corner I thought to post something a little darker then my usual. These are photos made to look like paintings, revers of Nigel Cox who is a realist painter. Where Nigel is brilliant technically I struggle to find any depth in is artwork. Brooke in contrast has very rich subject matter and each photo is a story onto its own, however a touch of elusiveness keeps you guessing.

A quite death, Her burial and The aftermath (as seen below) reminded me a little of the pre-Raphael paintings: Ophelia by Sir John Everett and The Lady of Shalott by Hughes, Arthur – Perhaps she got some of her inspiration from those?

Ray Caeser Collection 2011 and 2008

Entirely generated using 3D software Ray Casers work is haunting, surreal, disturbing, symbolic… He worked in the art and photography department of a children hospital. His job was to documented cases of abuse, reconstructive surgery and psychology. Dark as that may sound do interpreted his illustration and art outside of this fact – As with all art it can mean different things to different people.

As for me? Symbolic of Victorian era of sexual modernization, female empowerment / oppression, sexual  deviance, or perhaps at a stretch symbolic of the caged, naive and affluent of this world. (Older post with more art work here)

A few words from the illustrator: “I dream of digital ink and antique paper. Layering texture upon texture and telling a story.”

And herewith are the stunning results of Andrews dreams:
