On February 15, Mike Weiss Gallery in New York will debut a solo show by Christian Vincent titled “Ear to the Ground.” Interested in social behavior, Weiss creates idyllic paintings set in dreamy, imaginary lands. Meandering youths populate his works — for this latest series, he explores the dynamics of conformity and desire in social situations. The landscapes in Vincent’s paintings appear sparsely populated and lush, much like the idealized island habitats of Gauguin’s Tahitian series. Take a look at some images from “Ear to the Ground” Courtesy of Mike Weiss Gallery below.

See-Saw | L Filipe dos Santos
In this series by Filipe dos Santos, gouache patterns are mirrored & then sketched upon with pen and ink, creating marvelously dynamic and colorful images. Most of the Portuguese-native’s artwork is bold, using many bright colors, however he has his fair share of sombre pieces. Having begun making art at the age of 16, Filipe has developed his style into something original and one that expresses the human spirit.
i came across this person over 3 years ago and have been looking for his work for ages.
We are loving these “Lenticular Compositions” by Atlanta, GA artist Christopher Derek Bruno. Each piece is comprised of geometric paintings on wood panels that change as you view them from different angles. From Christopher’s artist statement, “Employing basic shape and composition along with a high level of craft, the work is created to physically engage the viewer as three-dimensional aspects manipulate the painted forms.”

“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”
