Tyler Spangler ’s Spooky Neon Portrait Remixes


Tyler Spangler’s digital collages rehash old portraits to uncanny effect. He mixes faces like batter or melts them like wax. Of course this would be much more gruesome were it not for the joyful neon colours he employs. His artwork has the distinct aesthetic of the internet age. Wild patterns and powerful colours are overload for the eye, providing a high level of stimulation pretty much required, now, to incite a strong reaction in the viewer.

Joseba Eskubi’s Mysterious Landscapes Of Visual Splendor


Painter Joseba Eskubi’s lusciously-crafted landscape paintings have both an incredible energy and a certain mystique to them. The gestural brush strokes signify movement like the wind or temperamental weather, and they exist in these desolate locations with brilliantly-colored dark sky; it’s like the bluish-purple that marks the middle of the night.


All of Eskubi’s paintings feels like they exist in the same world, but each sets the stage different for its own strange happenings. A lot of these structures are reminiscent of weeping trees or their twisted branches. These lines create an interesting visual tension that doesn’t necessarily feel threatening at the moment, but it was at one time (or maybe in the future?). It’s an uncertain, post-apocalyptic shelter. But unlike the stereotypical gray landscape, Eskubi has created a place of visual splendor.

Custom “Draco” Guitar by Emerald Guitars


Today we want to show you something really creative – custom guitar in the form of dragon. This chrome metallic dragon “Draco” guitar was created by Emerald Guitars and it might be one of the most impressively looking guitar. This functional custom guitar was hand sculpted in Thailand and to add some coolness, the eyes are LEDs and glow a nice blue. “My customer had seen Leehom’s dragon and wanted a dragon of his own. It was going to be a bass so we had a bigger platform to work with. The brief was quite simple, the bass had to be a flying dragon in outstretched flight. It was going to be quite a lot different than anything I had built before but the challenge was the reward.” Have fun!

Standard
























Michał Janowski is a 30 year old Polish-born artist residing in the United Kingdom.


He moved to Scotland in his early twenties and coincidentally ended up living right next to the Glasgow School of Art. He later attended the University of East Anglia and graduated with a certificate in Visual Arts. However, his love of creating began long before his classical training:



“I remember very well that I was constantly drawing something as a child. It was the purest form of fun as I could do whatever I wanted. The ‘’real toys’’ were fine but they were already made if you know what I mean.”



Michał’s creations display an abundance of different emotions and techniques. His unique ability to blend realistic elements with unearthly visions that seem to be straight out of nightmares makes his pieces not only aesthetically fascinating, but also a bit perplexing.

The Story Of Nicholas Vreeland’s Path To Enlightenment

Standard
Directors Guido Santi and Tina Mascara have made an uplifting documentary of Vreeland’s fascinating life. Through photographs and interviews, they tell his story. The movie “Monk With A Camera” had its NYC premier at Lincoln Center this past weekend. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama has told Vreeland that his “special duty (is) to bridge Tibetan tradition and Western world.” He is now the director of the oldest Tibetan Buddhist Center in New York City, The Tibet Center.

Vreeland explains:







I am a monk who makes photographs. The monastic aspect needs to be the overarching one. Photography simply plays a part in my life, sometimes big, sometimes small…I am just an amateur photographer, one who engages in it out of love and out of necessity or addiction.
