I’ve been inspired by the organically surreal artwork of painter Stephan Balleux since I first stumbled upon it. He’s updated his website with more comprehensive views of his aggressive and ambitious art exhibitions. It’s all very worth a highly inspirational browse.

‘Gorgeous’ is a fair word to use when trying to describe some of the images captured through the lens of photographer Michael Muller. There is a richness of color, subject matter and composition that you don’t often encounter.

The photographic project titled ‘Urban Elements’ is Boris Loder’s attempt at isolating the objects and familiar architecture that constitutes our everyday urban environment.

Illustrator Angelica Alzona likes to keep things a bit dark with moody brooding imagery that is occasionally lightened by just a hint of fantasy.

Illustrator Stefaan De Croock has some dense and detailed illustration work on his website that is vibrant and kinetic. He’s equally good at translating said imagery from paper to walls and as a result does his share of mural work.

Illustrator Pietari Posti was someone I used to check in on regularly back a year or two ago. It’s been a long time since I have browsed his work but there has been an update and what looks like a new website. Posti is still rocking with some exceptionally artistic and colorful imagery.

Here’s a little preview of a poster I illustrated featuring a rather local-centric icon for this year’s Artcrank Exhibition starting tomorrow here in Denver. The title of the poster is “Ride or D.I.A. tryin’”. It features one of our beloved local works of public art that just might be a symbol of the apocalypse. The poster is a 4 color screen print in an edition of 100. Forty of the posters will be available at Artcrank tomorrow and I will put the remaining 60 up for sale sometime next month for everyone who can’t make it out to the show. I’ll post details here when it’s up for sale online.

There is some amazing talent in this year’s show and some of the posters I’ve seen are fantastic. I honestly think it’s going to be one of the best Artcrank shows ever so if you can, please try to make it out.

The show starts at the Taxi building in Denver tomorrow at noon. You can get details and directions here. I hope to see you there. I’ll have my son in tow and it will be the first art show he’s attended that’s exhibiting some work created by his old man.

*On a side note: I apologize for the lack of posts lately. Since departing my partnership at Friends of Mine and relaunching my studio again single-handedly I have literally been busier than I ever have in my entire career which I didn’t think was possible. It’s been hard to keep up lately. Tons of new projects for Vail, Vladimir Jones, a local architecture firm, Armada Skis and several other clients have kept me totally tied up. I have 3 new posters all in the studio ready to ship so expect news on that soon. Thanks for your patience and please don’t hesitate to contact me with news to be featured on the blog, questions or projects. I get a little lonely here in the studio by myself sometimes too so if you wanna drop in just let me know and lets hang out. Tear me away from work please.

One of my favorite pop illustrators has very recently updated his portfolio with some imagery from a recent gallery show. James Jirat Patradoon also got down on generating some animated gifs for the show that played on old televisions. Cool idea.

“The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art has organized a major traveling exhibition of new work by contemporary Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto. The exhibition will premiere in Charleston May 24-July 7, 2012, as a featured presentation of the Spoleto Festival USA. Return to the Sea: Saltworks by Motoi Yamamoto will travel nationally after its inaugural presentation, including stops in Los Angeles, CA, Charlotte, NC, and Monterey, CA. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a site-specific installation created entirely out of salt by the artist during his two-week residency at the Halsey Institute.”

Get lost in the contemplative and meditative works of Matoi Yamamoto. It would be an experience to witness his work in person.
