Hailing from Cork (Eire), I have lived the majority of my life in and around London. Self-taught and non-conformist, my influences range from dark graphic novels through to the works of Francis Bacon and Aubrey Beardsley.I have painted/exhibited alongside respected artists such as Goldie, Nick Walker, Jamie Reid and Jef Aerosol. But in general, I shy away from the scene, keep my own counsel and shun the typical life of a street artist." - Finbarr Dac  photo Screen Shot 2016-02-01 at 6.15.35 PM_zpsj46klmwg.png  photo Screen Shot 2016-02-01 at 6.15.07 PM_zps0egp2tzz.png

Tales You Lose by Andre Levy

tumblr_mvbsodPlMa1siodr2o1_1280 tumblr_n6yzr5N3KY1siodr2o1_1280 tumblr_nyf6rz8v011siodr2o1_1280 " We are constantly surrounded by pop figures – in films, in music, comics, and even in gossip magazines. They are sometimes our escape from reality, our fantasies. Coins portray something opposite: the real, the everyday.​This project is about individual expression in opposition to massified thinking, about how our personal passions are more worthy than things that are imposed to us. The paint brings to the faces of kings and presidents borrowed narratives from other famous characters and unleash individual alternative stories." - Andre Levy tumblr_msz88f0emD1siodr2o3_r1_1280 tumblr_mt3yvf9DjI1siodr2o1_1280 tumblr_n0066c2KRP1siodr2o1_1280

Ranging from overt colour fields to more mysterious abstractions, they cover a period in my creative development from 1996 right through until the present, and have been influenced by the works of the American Luminists, Mark Rothko, and the later Abstract expressionists such as Martyn Brewster.' - Nicholas Down  photo unnamed_zpsbree04wg.jpg  photo unnamed-3_zpsdk38ener.jpg  photo unnamed-5_zpssjcndrxo.jpg

Since his mom wrote the winning copy ("I like Ball Park Franks because they're plump like my little brother"), and he drew the accompanying picture, (a chubby anthropomorphic hotdog-boy), illustration seemed a natural calling. Since the contest's prize, a 3-speed Columbia banana-seat bicycle, had about the same monetary value as today's average spot illustration, he's been pretty much treading water ever since.  photo Tim-Bower-009-7124235364_zpsx3wznfmj.jpg  photo Tim-Bower-004-1642474996_zpsxsfmyqoh.jpg

 photo descendingintoanavatar_zpssgg4ohhv.jpg  photo Lindsey_Price2_zpsqjxpaeac.jpg  photo iwanttotraveltheworldtwice_zpsn21tgrvd.jpg " I create psychedelic photomontages that represent a dream- like dimension of our universe. I hand- pick photos from a variety of sources and carefully craft them into a single image. I frequently search the internet, magazines, books, and blogs among other methods, for materials and inspiration. In addition, I use my own photographs in some of my more personally significant pieces. My work is most greatly influenced by members of the surrealist art movement such as Man Ray and Hannah Hock. In addition, I follow contemporaries such as Ryan McGinley and Stanley Kubrick. Each piece features different moods and energies that reflect my innermost desires, fantasies and dreams around the globe. My traditional East Coast upbringing clashes with the time I’ve spent on the West Coast in the past decade, which creates juxtaposition in my art. I occasionally include myself in my artwork as the darker shapes, while my musical influences are brighter. Each piece I create serves as a temporary escape from my reality. I always give viewers clues in order to get their bearings, yet leave room for creativity in the details. I find the digital art world to be misunderstood, and hope that viewers can use my work as temporary vessels to embrace their desires fully." - Lindsey Price  photo world_zpsefm564kj.jpg  photo oasis_zpsdot3bvjh.jpg
