David Foldvari was born in Budapest, and has been living in the UK since 1986. Since graduating from the Royal College in London in 2001, his work has gained international recognition. Influenced by his Eastern European roots, his work often addresses subjects of alienation, identity and belonging; “Dealing with negative issues in my work helps to keep me balanced in real life”. Recently his work has become more monochromatic, stark and melancholy whilst still managing to retain its humanity and dark humour. David Foldvari has exhibited widely in London, New York, Japan, France, Italy, Germany, Slovenia and Hungary. Some of his recent commercial clients include Nike, Penguin Books, Random House, Mercury, Levis, Greenpeace and Arena. Increasingly his work is taking a more honest and personal direction and returning to its’ fundamental roots. He now lives and works in Brighton, England. (via Product of God)

Teun Hocks

Check out the work of Dutch artist Teun Hocks – performer, photographer, painter. ‘ In his photographs, Teun Hocks poses himself against painted backdrops, playing an innocent Everyman in an always strange and often funny world. His narrative approach expands on the precedent of Ger van Elk and reflects attitudes characteristic of his native Holland. The Dutch are travelers, and Hocks explores worlds of his imagination; the Dutch are informed observers, and Hock’s humor is frequently based on deadpan or passive responses to things beyond his control; the Dutch are traditional and family-centered, and Hocks often portrays unnecessary or even inappropriate convention in dress and behavior. ‘

Frank Plant

Frank Plant is a Barcelona based American sculptor. He studied sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After finishing his B.A. in fine arts in 1993 he moved to Amsterdam and during this period he began to develop his drawings in steel. These are simple and direct studies of the forms and compositions of everyday objects. Welded steel has always been the principal medium for Plant’s work, whether in his two dimensional pieces such as his fingerprints series or his earlier three dimensional kinetic metal sculptures, that incorporate found objects. In 1999 Plant moved to Barcelona and began to diversify the materials he uses in his sculpture. Photography and painted wooden backgrounds, light boxes, motors, sensors, sound and music have all become integral parts of his sculptures. In investigating new ways of communicating with the viewer, interactivity continues to play an increasingly central role in Plant’s work. Since 2000 he has taught at Metafora Tallers de Art Contemporani in Barcelona. His work is in private and public collections throughout Europe and North America. ‘

Ekundayo’s work expresses the struggle of life and how those struggles and burdens can either inspire us to change in a constructive way or weigh us down by our own inability to change. ‘ Links here and here.
