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).

Phenomenal artwork by Ryohei Hase


The animals being fused with human bodies gives me the feeling that these are expression of perpetual and universal human conditions. Almost all his artwork are incredibly intense and I find myself gripped every time I feast my eyes on his work. Needless to say that the anatomical detail and proportions of his artworks are brilliant.

The Repetition rang (First 2 Illustrations) for me expresses anxiety, struggle, fighting, angst, trapped, rebellion, frustration but all intertwined in on itself – feeding upon itself deepening that experience. A self fulfilling prophecy, one emotion triggering another until absolutely embroiled with no definite starts or ends.  The Room range (Last 3 Illustrations) individually have their meanings. The Rabbit and the Tiger seem very symbolic/mythological but what I would say it  shares with Repetition is the sense of perpetual struggle. A struggle bound to nothing but itself,  nourishes the fight. The other two I will leave open for your own interpretation.

The below two art works are from his Repetition range:

Ryohei-Hase-Rabbit-People

Ryohei-Hase-Dogs-Chains

 

The below 3 art works are from his Room range:

 

Ryohei-Hase-Battle

Ryohei-Hase-Water-Trap

Ryohei-Hase-Blood

School of Visual Arts Exhibition: April-30 to May-15


The exhibition brings together books, figurative paintings, comic books and narrative series by 19 students graduating from the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department.

I recommend anyone who is either an artist or is an art lover to make a trip to the exhibition as I’m sure it will be very inspiring . It starts at the end of the month, April 30, and will run till May 15. For more details click here. I truly wish I could attend but unfortunately I wont be able to make it to New York.

If you have not already heard of SVA then you should know that it is arguable one of the worlds most prolific schools when it comes to the visual arts. To mention a few of the well know illustrators who attended the school: James Jean, Sam Weber and Yuko Shimizu. The other faculties such as film, photography and design have equally impressive credentials.

Below is a selection of beautiful illustrations from the Thesis Projects all of which will be on show:

Hope you enjoyed the illustrations and are able to make it to the event.
