Paintings by German/Dutch artist Francien Krieg. Her figures are at once delicately ethereal and grotesquely real.

Asger Carlsen

Asger Carlsen is a camera user with escaping needs and wants. In the dialogue of grains and tones, the subjects escape through a hole in the sky. The moments captured deface, defile, and subvert – in the best way possible. I want more.

Han Bing

Han Bing is an artist living and working in China. Working primarily through photography, with some installation, Bing explores the characteristics of the “modernization” of China. His work is an introduction to the land, the people, and the romanticism of the country. He had previously been featured by us a month or so back in our food art series post by Ms. Makena.

Jota Castro

Jota Castro is an artist concerned with security. His pieces show you everything and forget to beg for forgiveness. They seem to like people, but hate owners. The work offers no chance for remorse, but that is the best thing about them.

Geoff McFetridge

Geoff McFetridge is a creator living in Los Angeles, California. He has his hand in many things, most recently the title sequence in Spike Jonze’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’,  and never seems to disappoint. At the moment, he has a skate company called The Solitary Arts, a wallpaper company called Pottok Prints, a design business called Champion Graphics, and does gallery/museum shows in his spare time. I’ve been following his work for years, and his work deserves every bit of recognition is receives. I can’t wait to see what his hand has in store for us next.

Johan Björkegren

The work of Johan Björkegren feels like a fairy tale, with twists and turns. It’s what I pictured when I was 5 and holding the covers hearing stories. It is decrepid and pronounced, and can, at times, feel like a house that won’t stop squeaking. It feels loved and nurtured, but it doesn’t believe in purity or the idea of white.

Superoboturbo

The boombastic Superoboturbo illustrations remind me of how excited I used to be when I saw monkeys on television. I used to be obsessed with those little fuzzy guys, and I’m beginning to swoon for this man’s work the same way. His controlled pallette and friendly line-weight make for a rambunctious duo that make it hard to pull my eyes away.

Also, he recently broke his leg so maybe send him a nice note or a little work to help cheer him up/pay the medical bills at: [email protected]

Almut Vogel

I’ve always believed it is easiest to talk about artwork as if it almost doesn’t exist. The idea of a piece so fleeting, yet moving, is something romantic – and, in a sense, natural. The work of Almut Vogel taps the shoulder of this idea and smiles. In each line and scratch, the lightness and darkness sing songs about their lives, and history while trying to figure out their future.
