Lou Zhenhong’s Dwarf Series borrows from the ubiquitous vinyl toy vernacular, though there remains nothing cute or cool about these sculptures. Their faces distorted, twisted as though viewed through a carnival mirror, the figures are at once whimsical and saddening in their caricature of everyday occupations and the quest for individuality in the world’s most populous continent. ‘ Link here.

Roxanna Vizcarra

Roxanna Vizcarra, from Brooklyn, spent most of her early life believing people who drew things for a living were desperately poor and unhappy, or at least very misinformed. During adolescence, however, she became much less sensible and reversed this opinion all together. She has BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design, which largely involved drawing as many awesome and manly things as possible.”

Margherita Premuroso

Freelance character concept artist and character animator Margherita Premuroso created these beautiful CG images using the usual tools of the trade namely Painter and Photoshop. I couldn’t get over the subtle yet elegant touch to make these stand out. Truly my kind of style.

Shohei Otomo

Amazing black and white artwork of Shohei Otomo. The occasional splash of red makes his work more striking.

Mike Slobot aka mheisler writes in to tell us about Slobots. They are ‘ found object robots out of lots of different stuff with a focus on plastics. Each slobot sculpture has its own story regarding job searches, love, healing, and other, mostly human, emotions and life issues. ‘ Go to Mike’s website and blog for more information and check out his Flickr page – more pictures of the toy are posted there too.

Philip Akkerman

‘ Having declared that, “I paint myself, and so I paint the whole of mankind”, one can speculate that Philip Akkerman (bn.1957), who has been painting only self-portraits since 1981, is doing more than just capturing his own image. Like the tradition of Dutch still-life painting where a universe is expressed within a few simple objects, Akkerman’s continuous, and slightly theatrical, documentation of his self-image lies both within this tradition as well as the more conceptual one in which time’s passage is marked. Based in Den Haag, he offers, in this simple approach, less answers but more questions about change, ageing, and how we see ourselves in our daily lives. A prolific painter, by following Old Master techniques, he is re-invigorating the past with a contemporary attitude. ‘ Read the interview here.
