 Splashed Watercolour Paintings By  Tilen Ti        

Watercolour paints have a fantastic way of capturing vital energy and ghostly shades of color that no other medium can, and Tilen Ti, an artist in Singapore, has become an expert at using watercolour paints to their fullest potential. The animals in his vibrantly colourful works seem to come to life on the page.

Ti focuses primarily on various tropical birds though he’s also painted more mundane creatures like cats and snails as well. He sells his paintings on Etsy, so be sure to check him out!  Etsy | Instagram | Tumblr | Deviantart

Deconstruction of America by Mike Campau

Mike Campau is an digital artist from Michigan, USA who has over 15 years of experience creating powerful imagery for large brands and their high profile agencies.

I never talk politics on social media (or even with friends) as it usually leads to a heated discussion, hurt feelings, and a few “F” bombs.  So, I decided to convey my thoughts through images. 

Whether you are liberal or conservative, we can all agree there are some major problems facing our country right now. Everything from government corruption, broken justice system, religion (or lack there of), poor diet and nutrition, the shock value “look at me” YouTube generation, and how we have all become desensitized and almost apathetic in our response to hate crimes and mass shootings. 

I’m not here to get on a soap box and say who is right or wrong, but to invoke a sense of urgency to make a change before it’s beyond repair.

The images use a visual metaphor of a living tree being cut down, disassembled into logs, and burned to the point where it has little to no value.  (photography + CGI)

really-shit:

There has not been much news coverage about the extensive damage Dominica received as a result of the passing of Tropical Storm Ericka. Parts of the island are inaccessible and so badly damaged that even helicopters are unable to land to provide relief. Many families living along the riverside perished as flash floods dramatically increased in the early AM and swept away their homes and themselves.

If you have a dollar or two, please consider donating to this relief fund so that we can get people safe and on the road to recovery.

Please help!

Minimalist Geometric Paintings by Jan Kalab

Jan Kalab born 1978 is a Czech artist that was one of the pioneers of graffiti in his homeland. As a founder of the DSK crew, his career stretched from Prague’s train yards to painting whole cars in NYC in 2000. 

Around that time, he developed an interest for 3D graffiti and eventually started sculpting huge abstracts letters. This eventually evolved into passion for abstraction when in 2007 he graduated from the Academy of fine Arts of Prague. One year later, he had his first solo show and continued actively creating works and showing worldwide. Over time, his works became more geometric based with squares and circles as the main shapes or forms he uses. After successfully introducing his work in the US last year, Kalab has several shows scheduled, with a big solo show in Prague coming on the 29th of June at Villa Pelle. Follow him on Facebook.
