Woah Tatiana, way to go and blow my mind! All the elements in her paintings swirl your imagination into a frothy milkshake. Looking at them I feel like I am dreaming after eating too much cheese. Always interesting, and strange. The colours, hues of blues and pinks submerge her fish, birds and bees in other worlds, and I feel like I am traversing her painting in a submersible. Tatiana Kazakova is a Russian illustrator, and if you can read russian, why not visit her blog, which is full of interesting snippets as well as art.
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?
