Can’t say much about who ‘ᎻᎪᏤᎬ Ꭺ ᏁᎥᏟᎬ ᎠᎪᎩ‘ really is other than a working artist in Berlin that is doing some lovely work with soft blending abstract color and really that is probably more than enough to say right?

I’ll just come out and say from my personal pulpit that in my humble opinion Thomas Traum is kind of awesome. His strange ethereal abstract work has drawn in the attention of equally awesome people like Universal Everything and he has recently updated his website with a big tasty page of delectable, bright and shiny strangeness.

I have previously featured the work of artist Kora Krit but I believe this may be a new website showcasing some of his very unusual and original clothing. Either way, his fascinating t-shirt designs are still worth a second look.

A little more about the artist:
“Previously known as “Pissingsquirrel”, “Kora-Krit” is a collection of tees, hoodies and fashion items made by Korakrit Arunanondchai. Korakrit loves having fun and hopes that people who wear his inventions will feel the same too.”

Joe Andreas’ colorful abstract collages are just plain fun to look at and would probably make for some great conversation if hung on a wall in a set. You can see them in his Flickr-folio.

Nuremberg-based Artist ‘Gerhard Mayer draws with ink on paper and on walls. His lines are controlled, precise, and technicaly exact.’ The precision required to execute his pen and ink works is impressive and his collage work requires an equal amount of attention. Impressive and beautiful imagery is the result of his labor.

Painter Luke Rudolf has discovered a magic formula utilizing the interplay between simple geometry, organic paint strokes and use of color to devise images that you just can’t take your eyes off of. It’s almost as if you expect something to materialize from beneath his work.

Andrzej Zieliński received an M.F.A. at Yale in 2004. Since then he has exhibited his work at several galleries within the U.S. His roots are in Kansas City, Missouri. I guess you could describe his work at abstract derived from modern technology.

Jim Gaylord is an oil painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His paintings use light, motion and color in the most unusual way by recalling something familiar but putting that familiarity into a spinning, blurring and reflecting tornado.

jaakkomattila.jpg

Jaakko Mattila is a Finnish artist who works primarily with geometric shapes but also branches out into more organic forms of abstract compositions. Although I was at first drawn more towards his geometric-focused pieces, I was really taken by the above gloss on board painting.

Todd from Joyengine sent me a note about this today and asked if I would do a little write up about it, so here it is. I was really impressed with the conceptual nature of some of the work and really like that it is something very different and contemporary. It is also nice that it can be seen right here in Denver.

So without further ado, here is the press copy:
“Artyard Contemporary Sculpture presents an exhibition of a new body of work by Colorado artist Joseph Shaeffer in an exhibition titled, CONFRONT(A)VOID. This is Shaeffer’s 3rd solo exhibition at Artyard. A reception, with the artist in attendance, will be held on Friday, May 23rd, 2008, from 6 -9 p.m.. This exhibition continues through June 29th, 2008. Artyard Contemporary Sculpture is open Thursday through Saturday from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m., and by appointment.

For more information visit Artyard online at www.artyardgallery.com or call (303)777-3219. Artyard Contemporary Sculpture is located at 1251 South Pearl Street minutes from downtown Denver”

Unfortunately I am flying out of the country this weekend so I won’t be able to attend but if you are in the city, please do stop by and check it out. It looks like it will be an interesting show.
