Mateo Dineen


Originally from California, Mateo moved to Berlin in 2003. His artwork usually incorporates old materials that he finds on the street or at local flea-markets in Germany. Upon these box lids, munitions crates, tobacco tins, and street signs, he creates a world that seems to emerge from another time, or perhaps another dimension. His lovable monsters reflect ourselves back at us. Some display curiosity with a tinge of unease, while others have seemingly been caught unawares whilst having an everyday moment. Just about every image seems to tell a story and invites the viewer to imagine what might occur next.

Great artwork by Owen Smith


I love the way he exaggerate proportions and emphasise volume and movement. The 1900 to 1950′s figures crowd the frame and overlap each other in angular or swirling composition. He says he is often called on to depict scenes of sexual tension or implied violence. To which he added that it did not matter if the subject is serious or pure kitsch, his work is always about human interaction and isolation. I hope you enjoy his work. :)

Stacey Rozich and a beautiful Folktale


Born and raised in Seattle/Washington, Stacey tells stories of an early culture, where she explores the relationship between nature and animals. Her brightly coloured and ethnically textured characters give the viewer a sense of nostalgia, seem slightly frightening hidden behind their masks and at the same time appear familiar and inviting. Stacey draws inspiration from cultures all around the world. I love how she portrays her findings in such a fresh and beautiful manner. Have a look at her blog for more folk art.

Alexander Jansson – A mystical magical world


Working from his design studio “Sleeping House” in Sweden, Alexander Jansson creates mysteriously beautiful worlds where intricately drawn music vans fly through the air, cute characters play music and lively cities appear from the dark heavy mist. Although the artworks seem gloomy they evoke not feelings of darkness but rather feelings of life, light and music.

Istvan Banyai – Politics, social absurdities, american pop culture


Istvan is a very successful commercial illustrator and animator who gained prominence in the mid-1980s in the USA.

Its odd but I find his illustration unusually easy to visualize - flavor and setting. He seems to have a real knack for isolating the subject matter through clever use of colors and layout. Politics, social absurdities, american pop culture, war and sexuality are all things he infuses in his art. Enjoy!
