Amazing ink illustrations by Japanese Artist Shohei Otomo. Watch the video by Carhartt below to see how he makes his really detailed images. Shohei Otomo’s solo exhibition at Lesley Kehoe Galleries in Melbourne opens on the 7th of September and consists of thirty-eight original pieces and several limited edition prints.
Here are some really great partially silhouetted images from UK based Artist Kristian Jones’s ‘Fast Food Dreams’ and ‘Lost in Youth’ series. When I first saw Kristian Jones‘s work I thought of some of James Jean’s drawings and the bizarre playful work of ‘Friends With You’. Kristian uses similar subject matter of youth, innocence and surreal characters but makes them his own with his clean minimal lines used to maximum effect.
“His style preys on the innocence of childhood imagination, surreal worlds and fictional creatures.”
Some slightly disturbing Hieronymus Bosch esq work from the four piece Belgian collective Hell’O Monsters. Hell’o Monsters comprises of 4 artists: Antoine Detaille (Tatone), François Dieltiens (Desro), Jérôme Meynen (Blastus) et Grégory Van Cleemput (Ewing 33).
“The group’s creations, despite their colorful and happy look, are in fact caustic commentaries on the adult world, human nature and society.”
