The accordian-like form has uniquely manufactured, hinged pleats that effortlessly support the exaggerated scale of these featherweight sculptures.'

Happy Hot Dog Napkin Ring

 photo modern-napkin-rings_zpsa2c882f8.jpg  photo Happy-Hot-Dog-Napkin-Ring_zpsbe2d4d32.jpg Rejuvenate vintage decor on the dining table in the form of this Happy Hot Dog Napkin Ring that looks nothing less in terms of its beauty and unique design. Each set consists of 6 rings you can use to flaunt a design from the past with pride while you dine with guests. The design representing one of man’s favorite pets adds the perfect icing to the cake which looks like a combination of simplicity and art bound together in a beautiful framework. For those who already own pets in the house, it would seem like having your pups carry your napkins around which they often do in reality. Your dining tables couldn’t have had a better accessory than this in order to look different and out-of-the-box.  photo 3716b5511f22ade454496adc2ebf80b1_zps94ac2f37.jpg

I was kind of bored about working only with vector illustration, I was seeking for a new unique style, something more warm, something that I can make with bare hands. I choose fuzzy felt because it's a kind of material which isn't used too much as a pure graphical media. My goal was to develop flat bidimensional collages, paper is already very used in illustration, plus it can't guarantee the same hardness than Fuzzy Felt does." - Jacopo Rosati  photo b24370416807bba843b8c2b827c06eea_zps6c016010.jpg  photo b235b0b56344cd45aec89119060d6c32_zps6626a65f.jpg

Duarte Vitória

 photo revolution_zps8239467f.jpg  photo into_the_dark_zpsa539ea63.jpg  photo insomnia_zpsdd8c7733.jpg In this series "artist Duarte Vitória shares his vision with the spectator, through touching his deep senses. This time, the work embodies the concept of Revolution, as a permanent state of being. In the artist perspective, the evolution path sustains itself in the idea of constant movement, ever changing into new forms, new states of mind, new ideas; Sustains in the concept of the ever fresh and recreated human being. Vitória´s statement is about never submitting to a lethargic state of mind. Is about daring to change, daring to emerge ourselves in the profound dark of the human condition, without restrictions. With is vivid and rebel brushing, he intends to disturb the spectator, giving the impression of almost grabbing him. The interlocutor is choked by the inter-penetration of flesh, the marks and prints all over the bodies, claiming the Insomnia as a pre-revolutionary state of being. The large scale of the works amplifies the disturbing effect, well known as the digital print of the identity of this artist."  photo inoffensive_zpsb3ee9c55.jpg  photo insubordination_zpsd442ba0a.jpg

Dale Dreiling

 photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-24-M_zps3f45b9c2.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-19-M_zps85d141f1.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-07-M_zps400d86ee.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-32-M_zps7bc13a0f.jpg Dale Dreiling is a multi-media artist whose work rebukes the traditional concept of beauty by overlapping existing aesthetic ideals, incorporating both the expected and unexpected. His body of work demonstrates his capability for realistic technique as well as his sensibility for impressionistic representations of the everyday, strongly occupying the grey space of not-highbrow, nor-lowbrow. Playing in limbo presents a challenge unique to contemporary art: bringing new perspective to dancing down the middle of the road. Dreiling has an innate sense of when to veer one direction or the other, revealing a mastery of that ever elusive balance: the beauty in in-betweeenness. Dreiling is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. He is an Art Director for Studio Number One and currently lives in South Pasadena, CA.  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-49-M_zpsd44166e7.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-38-M_zps8462fef5.jpg  photo dd-Beer-Ptgs-41-M_zps388fc44f.jpg
