Alejandrina Herrera (previously featured here) is an artist from Mexico. In her drawings and mixed media pieces she tells stories about people and animals in an ironic and melancholic way and how they interact with their surroundings.

Linz, Austria based German artist Toni Spyra transforms the stuff we see and use everyday into conceptual installations and sculptures. His works have appeared on the streets and in places where objects are completely out of context and with a twist of humor, provoking us to consider their usefulness beyond their design.
Travis Chapman describes his work as ‘art with a twist’ and it is exactly that. His paintings often contain pop and celebrity culture themes in ironic situations such as Edward Scissorhands in a blow up lifeboat. His beautifully painted landscapes sometimes include intentional tongue-in-cheek additions to subtly mention current moments in the news.
