August 16, 2012

British eco artist/designer Anna Garforth is near famous on the net for her lovely script style moss graffiti, for those not familiar with her other sublimely environmental works – here are a few more…

Wandering Territory was created digitally, printed, scored and “popped out” into a 3d sculpture.

French artist Hubert de Lartigue began in packaging design in the 80s before moving to illustration. Most of his work was mainly focused on pin-ups, and he created several sci-fi magazine covers and role playing game illustrations. Since 2003 he started painting in acrylic on canvas in larger formats and ultra hyperreal style. Currently living in Paris his main gallery is in New York at the Bernarducci-Meisel-Gallery.

Artist and self taught carpenter Michael Rea records and fictionalises the world around him by recreating just about anything you can think of as life size wooden sculptures. Guns, futuristic tanks, robots, time machines, massive sound systems and giant astronaut suits… yes you get the picture, all the toys that boys could possibly want. It’s probably like a scene from an unpainted sci-fi movie set in Rea’s studio. See and learn more about his work at www.mikerea.com.

Check out this interview with Canadian born/London based artist Andrew Salgado at Yatzer. Salgado’s paintings are highly deconstructive – both on a technical and emotional level. His choice of colour combos always stick in my mind – they’re almost synaesthetic. His latest exhibition is at the Dosi Gallery in Korea (20 July /18 August 2012, 202-­2 Kwangan 2 dong, Suyoung-­gu, Busan, Korea). In case you’re not fortunate enough to visit the show, you can always visit his site at www.andrewsalgado.com.
