Ritchelly Oliveira draws from emotions to create his different pieces. Building on his talent for sketching which he discovered at a young age, Oliveira developed a distinctive style: hyperrealistic portraiture often interspersed with surrealistic elements that surprise and captivate. While the artist admits that there can be a cliché behind the emotion, he sees the bumps and anxieties hidden beneath the surface. This has inspired him to display these scars in his own work as he has witnessed them on his own path.
Mark Mulroney considers sex and gore as primary means of defiance, and accordingly, guts, exaggerated genitalia, bloody wounds, and well-endowed pin-up girls take center stage in his surrealistic, comic-style paintings and sculptures. By way of explaining the series, Mulroney, who is not known for his discretion, says, “I just relied on my usual methods: put a boner on something or make it bleed.”
Artistic Duo, Muralists and imagemakers Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann started working on their creative abilities from a very young age. Working together seamlessly, they both enjoy working in realistic styles. With loads of contrast in subjects. Technique and style have a high priority in the artwork of Telmo & Miel, true craftsmanship is what they want to produce. They work separately on ideas for murals and come together with the sketches to see if combinations can be made. The result is usually very surrealistic, with attention to detail. They always work on the same piece together and are able to switch places when ever wanted or needed.
Hell’O Monsters, a collective of Belgian artists, started by using exterior walls as their canvas, but it was within the walls of their studio that the uniform and homogeneous identity of the duo was forged.
Quite rapidly the strict aesthetic codes that they established based on mastering the line and graphic leitmotiv, were applied to designs, paintings, sculptures and installations. The creative approach is characterized by an extremely conventional freedom paired with meticulous execution. Their universe is inhabited by a surrealistic bestiary of mysterious animals, hybrid characters, architecture and badass geometry.
We just came across this work from Russian artist Boris Indrikov. Is is an crazy combination of classic, Art Nouveau and even some Surrealistic imagery all at once. The work is definitely something different which is nice to find once in a while.
