Li Hongbo

 photo Li_Hongbo_Klein_Sun_6-600x580_zps6zzfthux.jpg  photo paper-sculptures-li-hongbo-10_zpssojm1yyt.jpg Li Hongbo is a Beijing based artist that creates surprising and unusual works from paper. A book editor and designer, Li Hongbo began collecting and experimenting with paper and was inspired by the traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as ‘paper gourd’. Created from a stack of interconnected sheets of paper, Li Hongbo realized the simplicity of their ‘honeycomb’ composition and the boundless possibilities of their shape and properties. Thousands of sheets of paper are glued to create a large block. The artist carves this block to create a form that can be outstretched like an accordion, transforming the work into something completely different.  photo DMG_LH_Doll1-e1436581035372_zps45hqsmep.jpg  photo B_W_Doll-e1436581350390_zpsh23bxaqr.jpg

She brought with her a love for theatrics, romanticism and nature and combines these with her passion for the art of photography. She often uses herself as a model and prefers an organic, spontaneous and naturally lit approach to her work, aiming to create an emotional authenticity rather than a literal accuracy. She is self-taught and draws inspiration from blues music, Italian food, a nature that seems to slip through our fingers, connection and disconnection, midnight snacks eaten alone, the animal kingdom, awkward social experiences and that deep covered up need to be cradled by something extraordinary.  photo 8056455249_a3e56b9fb2_b_zpsfleahqyl.jpeg  photo 8056505300_5301bd02d9_b_zpsafh9vx4l.jpeg

William Morris

 photo 1_zpssyeukcou.jpg  photo 2_zpsc6b06wt3.jpg  photo 3_zps8zkfz2ae.jpg 'For more than twenty years, William Morris has captivated and intrigued the art community with hauntingly evocative and beautiful glass sculptures. He has captured the imagination time and again by creating objects that appear to be ancient stone or wood carvings, not the modern glass sculptures they actually are. His art speaks of human origins, myth, ancestry, and ancient civilizations. It symbolizes a harmony between humanity and nature and provides a ghost-like bond to the world around us - a world that is often forgotten, ignored, and abused. Morris gathers much of his inspiration from ancient cultures from around the world - Egyptian, Asian, Native American - all peoples who respected and admired the land they inhabited. Because of this, Morris's artwork has become something all its own: culturally distinct and yet familiar to all cultures. His pieces embody a spiritual quality that sharply contrasts old beliefs with those of the modern world. These objects speak to our senses and continuously beg us to explore them further.'

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
