Mysterious Heads: New Work from Stefan Zsaitsits

Thursday 10.04.2012 , Posted by

If you’ve ever felt like your head was stuck in the clouds, the characters of Stefan Zsaitsits can surely relate. His enigmatic figures each tell an imaginative story through their mysteriously drawn heads. Some morph into mountain ranges, others turn into geometric cubes and some even disappear. The simple style of his pencil based illustrations, childlike in their playfulness, belies the deeper aspects of the works and the vast imagination embodied in each. [Read more...]

What Does a Rabbit Dream About?

Friday 07.06.2012 , Posted by

You don’t get much more surreal than the illustrations of Indonesian artist Roby Dwi Antono. Like a strange dream from the mind of a sleeping rabbit, nearly all his works feature the cuddly, long eared creatures in some state of unreal transformation… the kind only seen when your subconscious mind is at work. In one good example, a rabbit wearing one-piece pajamas floats into the air while a house grows from the top of his head, ears springing from its windows. As if the house itself is alive, an eye and ears sprout from its walls. The rabbit itself, with a serenely peaceful look on its face, waves a crystal pendent while books spring from the zipper in its clothing. Are these stories the source of the drawings inspiration?

Taking a common sight for any city dweller, Boulton draws the view you’d see walking behind young men in the city, revealing a surprising amount of character and style in each individual, from their torn jeans to their classically relaxed postures.

Peaceful Illustrations With a Sharp Edge

Thursday 04.19.2012 , Posted by

There is something serenely quiet and peaceful about these brushed-on graphite drawings. Maybe it’s the way their simple, yet carefully chosen subjects are arranged: floating in a field of white canvas… or maybe it’s the way the objects are rendered with such a subtle, muted pallet. While the drawings mostly lack strong visual contrasts, sharp objects like scissors, rose thorns and potentially painful bee stings give many of the images an unusual quality of visual softness with a subjectively sharp edge. It’s beautiful, and at the same time, slightly un-nerving. [Read more...]
