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. Also, the soft palette combined with the dark, intricate details of the drawings are spot on.

THE DARK PORTRAITS OF ANTOINE CORDET

Check out these haunting, sort of sad, portraits by Paris based artist Antoine Cordet. Using mixed media (acrylic and marker on canvas) in his art, he touches on melancholy and nostalgia but his general outlook is positive because art gives him liberty to be who he has always wanted to be.

Antoine Cordet created his personal style through intense trial and error and a work ethic that makes him one to really keep an eye on.  His images are haunting and calming at the same time.  It is almost like Antoine knows something we do not and is constantly hinting at what we should be aware of even when it is not overly conspicuous.
