“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Since discovering Pinterest many many years ago I've been lucky to come across a wonderful selection of artists, digital artists and illustrators along the way. Pinterest is a great way to discover new talent and I wanted to showcase some of these that I've been obsessing with over the past years. I've included below a small selection of these artists in the first of my Feeling Artsy? blog posts and wanted to showcase some of my favourite pieces from this first talented group. Part 2 to follow shortly ...
London based lecturer and predominately still life painter, Alex's idea's are based around disposable household items, selected for their reduced colour.
Erika Lee Sears
Based in the US in Portland, Oregon, Erika is a self taught oil painter whose still life works give the viewer an insight into the ordinary and extraordinary moments into her everyday life as also showcased in Erika's blog, A Tiny Rocket.
Residing in the US, in Dover, New Hampshire and painting in acrylics, Jeremy's works seemingly explore the slightly unsettling and haunting juxtapositions of the space between two worlds, the interior and exterior, the past and the present and reality and memory.
LA based digital collage artist and painter, Jonas Wood's graphic works are boldly coloured and act as a visual diary, personal to the artist. Jonas combines elements of the world around him into his paintings, drawings and prints.
Residing in London, visual artist, Tishk Barzanji, combines elements of modernism and the surreal to his illustrative, colourful and striking works. Reminiscent of a modern day De Chirico, his art explores the relationship between man and construction and the human interactions within these spaces.
"Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.”
