danbaldwin.jpg

Dan Baldwin takes a mixed media approach to his artwork. He hacks, chops, spills, splatters and paints his compositions with frenetic energy. The end result is a mashup of the swilling vortex of violent news and popular culture.

There is a really good body of work in the portfolio of French studio PNTS, not the least of which is a series of really cool geometric symmetrical layouts using old school bodybuilding photographs. Nothing like Arnold in the 70s.

loubeach.jpg

What I really like about Lou Beach and his bizarro illustrations is how they kind of force you to reconsider something familiar and look at it in an entirely new way. Give yourself a little time to look all the way through his body of work. It’s worth it.

pioforsky.jpg

I can’t tell you much about Pioforsky other than the fact that he has some really beautiful imagery in his Flickr-folio. There is a kind of silent-movie-retro-throwback-psychedelic thing happening that is really nice.
