Philadelphia-based artist Armando Veve, creates drawings of surreal scenes and constructions, though each element is rendered in realism. With obsessive attention to detail and a mind that can conjure up epic and surreal scenes, his art becomes a world within its self. His work isn’t just exotic, exquisite, and excellently crafted, but he injects an odd and weird sense of humor that draws viewers to further explore his artistic realm. The style recalls both pointillism and vintage illustrations in reference books.
“The way I compose some drawings is very similar to how a sculptor arranges physical objects. I love to think of the drawings as blueprints for physical things.” – Armando Veve.
Brooklyn-based artist Kelly Denato works in a variety of industries and mediums. She works professionally in animation, illustration, and design. Denato also regularly exhibits her paintings, drawings, sculptures, and soft sculptures in galleries across the US. What inspires Denato is the beauty of optimism, and its inherent tragedy, just before disappointment. Her paintings, which are marked by darkness as well as gleeful exuberance, are emotional expressions of this elusive pursuit for meaning and the simultaneity of ill-fated happiness.
Denato’s painting technique is characterized by meticulous and tiny strokes layered on a textured background. Her colors are glistening and candy-like, often lifting her characters out of darkness as if they have been carved by lacerating colors. Her genius is her ability to richly layer paint while still employing economy in the use of her line, maintaining an empathetic sense of gesture. Her characters are often floating and tangled, drawn with a masterfully delicate illustrator’s hand and an eye for the whimsically sardonic.
Building upon the foundation of forgotten ephemera, the meticulously crafted collage art of Human Wreckage transforms the simple into the sublime. By assembling images culled from varied historical frames, ranging from mid-century pop to antiquity, the works evoke an ethereal timelessness.
The unconventional juxtaposition of diverse subject matter simultaneously elevates the mundane and humbles the divine. It is at once violently innocent and joyously satirical.
Japan-based artist Daisuke Tajima paints, draws, creates manga and sculpts, but most notable are his paintings, which employ his visual understanding of architecture to create meticulous renderings of imaginary cityscapes. The detailed characters and interactions of his drawings, though, are quite compelling and cut closer to his manga-influenced style.
