After by Paul Cadden

Alyssa Monks and Paul Cadden

I’ve always marveled at artists who take on hyperrealism.  Two of my favorites include Alyssa Monks and Paul Cadden.  Both take precision and detail to the extreme but employ different qualities to achieve their vision. Cadden takes on an oldschool photographic approach that provides rawness to his graphite works.  The tones immediately remind me of […]

Taking a Look at Ben Heine

One day last year, I caught sight of Ben Heine’s humorous and clever Pencil Vs Photography works during a daily perusal of StumbleUpon.  Though I was entertained by the precision and creativity of the work, I entirely forgot about it until recently.  At the time, I had no idea who the artist was, or the […]

Poured on the Floor

Much to my mother’s dismay, I’m pretty sure at five years old I was dumping paint on my kitchen floor while shouting “Look mommy, art!”  Though my work needed some refining, pour painting apparently has an edge in the art world, far beyond my childhood kitchen. Greenwich Village native, Holton Rower, is the artist of these colorful and eye […]

Ron Ulciny Does Sculptures

I really enjoy the use of different materials and the natural colors that are used in this sculpture. The wood of the bowling pin compliments the nature infused sub-sculpture inside of it; the sandalwood color of the pin really working for this sculpture due to the darker elements of the night time scene within the […]

Shay is an innovative artist who makes delectable penny-size art of food and food dishes. After admiring his […]

Shadow Art is Unreal!!!

I have never actually seen shadow art but by the look of these images, the art appears to require immense amount of creativity not only in the positionining of the materials used, the angle of the lighting but also in the images that are created. My favorite pieces are the ones that appear to be […]

After art, my next great love is books, so naturally I was drawn to this collection of works of art inspired by literature.  They are part of a long tradition of different media influencing one another, from plays based on books and operas placed on plays to current movies based on novels, video games, and […]
