Rae Martini’s Evolved, Graffiti-Inspired Paintings


Rae Martini‘s work combines expressionistic urban texture with graffiti-infused flourishes of color. Throw ups, tags, and gradients are partially obscured by grime of every variety. Everything’s happening at once. What’s great about these is that they present an evolved aesthetic within the realm of graffiti without abandoning some its more classic techniques. See more from the Italian artist after the jump.

Illustrated Type


B/D Intern Alumni and all around cool gal Alexis Kaneshiro has curated a great exhibition at Gallery Nucleus celebrating the almighty hand drawn typography. Long before we had computers, adobe software, and other mass printing services we used our own two hands to create beautiful typography for everything from signs to packaging for products. The show opens May 14th until June 6th so head on over to the gallery, give Alexis a high five and check out some killer experimental type.

Nick Sheehy’s Imagination Runs Wild In His Quirky Animal Inspired Illustrations

the-chair-2_nsheehybird-skeleton rabbit-2-by-nick-sheehy inner-1-by-nick-sheehy

Australian born and now London based artist Nick Sheehy illustrates awesome quirky, street art inspired scenes of fantastical hybrid characters. His work marries ideas from both aspects of low and high brow art; the playfulness and sort of dark humor moments of skeletons and overwhelming string that is reminiscent of veins (or, perhaps they are veins that are reminiscent of string?) winks to the aesthetic from both graffiti and comic book culture. Yet, there is a true classic beauty within each drawing, highlighting Sheehy’s talent and admiration for traditionalist draftsmanship. It is clear from his work that his attention to detail and disciplined drawing style has been developed from an intense labour of love, employing master technique and classic methods. Sheehy originally studied bronze sculpture “in the wilds of Tasmania,” (perhaps giving him the inspiration for such inventive animal-creature centered work!). He then “gave up on art only to re-discover his love for drawing whilst living in London.” Each of his pieces is unique to his practice and full of imagination, cleverness, and sophistication. Sheehy‘s work, he notes, “explores the dreamlike, sometimes semi-autobiographical scenes and oddball characters that echo from his childhood imagination.”

Alberto Guedea Zamora

Alberto Guedea Zamora

Alberto Guedea Zamora is a multi-disciplinary artist from Toronto, Canada. Abstract in every sense of the definition, his presence lacks a concrete existence in his own work- often posing with his face covered by a tangle of hair or his body colored by some bright paper. He become a ghost, keeps distance and remains impersonal. You can see a longer in depth interview with him and the full text I’ve paraphrased at Things of Desire (“Canada’s Alternative Art Weekly”).
