Paula Duro



So bright. So good. LOVE the bags! More on her flickr.

Caitlin Gallupe




I like how she puts her pieces together. Website.

DOODLES (Nick Mann)




Doodles' shit is sick. I'd love to see a solo show of his. Check out his flickr for more fun.

Jean Spezial




His work is awesome, but I hate how his website works and there is nothing more frustrating than an annoying website! There have been plenty of artists I didn't even bother looking at because their sites or layouts functioned so poorly, but i'm glad I didn't skip Jean. Neat shit.
Website here.

Mari Kanstad Johnsen (aka. Marikajo)





Love it. Her website is even super cool.

Chris Kuzma



I like the way Chris uses watercolours. They're a pain in the butt to use and control unless you either have the right tools or have practiced for years (which I have no patience for doing as of yet). Pretty cool. More on his website.

Marlon Kowalski

At first, I thought this was spray painted on the tree, which would be an even more incredible feat, but this projection by Marlon Kowalski is great. I would think it might be difficult getting a projected image to be that bold and bright, but maybe i'm wrong. The rest of his work is good too. He has a way of making his lighting look fake that I like. Check out his website here.

Cloudscapes



Why can't something this cool come to the states? If you can make it to Venice, go check it out. Cloudscapes is a collaborative effort between Tetsuo Kondo and a climate engineering firm by the name of Transsolar. All they need to do now is try to replicate the visual feeling of swimming through a nebula and no one will have to dream ever again.

Mike Bertino




Yet another artist from my favourite style. More on his website here.

Agustina Woodgate




All made out of human hair, eh? Pretty neat and gross. Could you imagine how much hair your would get in your mouth while making things like these? I think after the castle tower she should try an igloo. Her website.

Brendan Flanagan




Typically, I shy away from 'impressionistic' style paintings, but Brendan Flanagan's work is an exception. His colour choices are spot on, and I especially love the bright ones. I couldn't find out what kind of paint he uses, but if it's oil, holy shit. Pretty all-around awesome. Check out his website.

Kate MccGwire



Holy. F**king. Feathers. More.

Lola Dupre




I don't even know where to begin trying to figure out how Lola Dupre creates these collages. Yes, c-o-l-l-a-g-e-s. I'm assuming she makes multiples of the original image, like the cars as seen above, and re-assembles them to make distored, and rather 'sweet' works of art. Check out her blog for more versions, distortions and befores and afters to get the full effect here.

Tomáš Gabzdil Libertiny




I think this poses the question, what if it were done with a real body, dead/living/human/animal etc. Pretty neat. I'm glad he went with different colours. His website.
