Anton Henning

p

p

Anton Henning (German, born Berlin in 1964) is a painter whose diverse subjects and styles, from abstract to figurative, from pin-up girls to interiors are plundered knowingly from art history and popular culture. However, unlike Picabia to whom he has been compared, Henning’s diverse paintings are united by a delight in sensual pleasure, a passion for the tactile quality of paint, and a critical and subversive wit. ‘ (via Re-Title)

Angelique Houtkamp is the inspirational Dutch tattoo mademoiselle of the contemporary art world. Her work is deceptively simple, instantly recognisable and often humorous. Classic old school tattoo imagery mixed with mythological dreams, antropomorphed critters, nautical iconography and haunting Hollywood romance by way of Angelique’s distinctive painterly magic and eye for style. ‘

” In a dense phosphorescent fog, I have been searching for things which can never be found: the journals of Adam and Eve; a photographic record of the cities of the interior; a map charting the soul’s disasters and renewals; the keys to locked dimensions; the point at the centre of everything … My paintings are a residue of this effort. But they are only shells, fossil imprints around the things I truly meant to give existence to – those lost moments when my identity fell to the ground like a torn dress, and I moved through non-human spheres with X-ray vision and a compound mind, seeing and being all of those impossible things. ” – Maura Holden

Kizer

Kizer’s simple yet elegant geometrical shapes make up for some cool superhero themed artwork. His style is well-suited in animation, in my humble opinion.

Smooth & Smoothie Table

p

” Paint spilling out of the box makes you worry about the spots on the floor but the imaginatively cool table by French designer Florent Degourc takes this fretting feeling out. Smooth & Smoothie table reminiscent of bubble gum, made of a polyurethane foam and resin coating mixture gives it the ‘melted’ effect. Don’t take it wrong to be soft enough to be placed in the corner of the room just to solve the decorative purpose, its durable enough for everyday use. ” (via Home Tone)
