IN THE SMALL DETAILS.

I remember looking at Max Dalton’s ‘Ten Great Years‘ print years ago and considered buying it.  It was only $50 and I’m not sure why I didn’t jump on the opportunity.  Before a blink of an eye it was sold out.  Only a few years have passed and now its worth $1,200.  Oh how the waves of regret washed over me.  Not that I would have sold it anyway.  In my opinion Max Dalton is a modern genius and have been in love with his work since I laid eyes on it.  I like the way he represents the small details of each film.  Its the attention to detail that I think hes so good at.  He did a couple of ‘action figure’ pieces, though I think all of his work feels a little toy-like and action-figurey.  Pure nerd childhood bliss.  His whimsical vibe coincides with Wes Anderson’s vibe, so its no wonder Dalton designed the book cover for Andersons coffee table book (and if you haven’t already purchased it, I recommend it highly it’s absolutely stunning).

MODERN IMPRESSIONIST.

Artist and illustrator Nicole Gustafsson creates beautiful worlds using gouache paints.  Shes uses Impressionist tricks such as the inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience.  She creates beautiful stylized dream worlds and transports us to another land that is charming, colorful and peaceful.  Sprinkling nerdy references in an subtle way without it looking too “pop” arty.  Its closer to a Claude Monet painting than anything that I’ve seen in the ‘geek art” style.  Though the nerdiness is there in spirit.

CHILDHOOD IMAGINATION.

Modern surrealist artist Sachin Teng is an artist that is very hard to ignore. He creates poignant illustrations that has a bit of social commentary and a bit of whimsy.  He takes us on a journey that can be childlike and innocent to complex and dark.  These images are imaginative and thought provoking for sure.  He has such a unique style that would translate so well as an anime.

PICASSO MY FAVORITE MOVIES.

It’s interesting how a strange abstract outline can immediately process into a meaningful image to us. Pablo Picasso was a master at drawing a bunch of abstract shapes and somehow our brains make it into something.  Sometimes realistic representations can be a tad boring or a bit contrived.  Anytime an artist takes creative license to create something new I love the hell out of it. Italian artist Ale Giorgini creates really rad minimalist and abstract art based on pop culture figures….actually some of my favorite movies and characters!
