Portraits of Chinese Rockstars Imagined as Monumental Temples by...

Portraits of Chinese Rockstars Imagined as Monumental Temples by DU Kun Chinese artist DU Kun has long harbored a reverence for music and rockstars. A musician himself, the Beijing-based painter is awed by the creation of music, aspects of fame, and the intangible aura of being a revered rockstar, something he tries to capture is these temple-like portraits of famous Chinese recording artists titled “Revels of the Rock Gods”. Each oil painting depicts the face of a musician as if it were a temple built in devotion to a god and borrows elements from Buddhist and Confucian architecture. Eyes are depicted as windows, tree branches or waterfalls as flowing hair, and the surface of skin as ornate wood facades gilded with gold. Kun is currently exhibiting the “Revels of the Rock Gods” series as part of his first solo show in Japan at Mizuma Art Gallery in Tokyo through February 13, 2016. You can explore close-up details plus an archive of Kun’s work on his website .

Paintings by Kyle Stewart Memories are often distorted by emotion. When Kyle Stewart began painting his memories of nature, the details became transformed by the passage of time, affected by sentiment and his new urban environment. Living in downtown Toronto, the shapes and colours found on the graffiti covered walls quickly merged with thoughts of a past rural life. What was once a close relationship became a distant and broken conversation. The figures that now appear alongside these organic forms show the same disconnect with nature that the artist feels when painting landscapes from far removed memories. They struggle to find the words to speak or to make a firm connection; just slightly out of reach, like a fading dream. Connect with the artist on his  Facebook , Twitter  or  Tumblr .
