Artist Jon Todd takes eastern and latin cultural influences and throws them in a blender ending with a mishmash of references that evoke a sense of familiarity while managing to still seem exotic. Anecdotal sidebar: I have dressed as a luchador 2 years in a row for Halloween.
I have been following Tessar Lo for a while now, back since my Design Is Kinky days. His work is just so dreamy and lyrical, it transports you into another world. His latest work is even better and the colors and imagery are just beautiful. The painting of the boy floating above the cityscape is something I have envisioned in my own dreams many times over and to see it painted makes me wonder about the universal mind. Keep an eye on Lo, he is the real deal.
