Tokyo-based Kei Imazu’s paintings are heightened by the flurry of soft hues the artist has used. After making a collage, she transforms it from hew own point of view. Some sceneries are like melted while the others are like collapsed. But there’s a smoothness and elegance to her smears that take it beyond the glitchy.

Kei draws on classical imagery by painting a scenery created after digitally reassembling images collected from the internet, magazines or her own living space. She enjoys the colors and shapes of the motifs. She shifts our view to see all objects’ aesthetics and the entire composition.

Los Angeles based artist James R. Eads works with a background in traditional printmaking and painting. Like a map to a new world, his pieces act as illustrations for something unknown. Eads takes this feeling of discovery and scatters it throughout his work, offering a glimpse of the underlying magic of everything. He uses motion and color to create impressionistic dreamlike paintings that sway between reality and fiction.

James works primarily with a digital drawing tablet to create his pieces. This allows for the seamless transition to high quality prints. He takes what he has learned from his experience in painting and printmaking and translates it to the tablet resulting in work that can disguise itself as something else.

Estonian illustrator Eiko Ojala brings a fantastic sense of depth and texture into his editorial illustrations by using carefully arranged layers of cut paper and shadows. His process involves a mix of digital illustration, paper textures, and a mix of both real and artificial shadows. The works are all assembled digitally, but the artist often incorporates his own photos to achieve the desired effect.

Optical Illusions | FABIAN BÜRGY

Seeing is Believing, but really, Believing is Seeing. The work of Swiss sculptor and digital creative, Fabian Bürgy will have you seeing what you seem to believe. The line between reality and illusion is often undistinguishable as humans have a tendency to be drawn to the illusions and delusions in life. Bürgy’s installations play with the notion of human perception and the difference between real and false. He uses mixed media from sculptures to graphic design. The end result is often intriguing and beyond the realm of contemporary and conceptual art.
