Morita Haruyo's Vibrant, Modern Ukiyo-E

I discovered someone rather intensely amazing during my nightly Pinterest trolling. Her name is Morita Haruyo and she's a Japanese artist who does Ukiyo-e-looking ladies in a more modern way. Her paintings are exploding off the screen with vibrant color! I think it almost crashed my browser. Unfortunately I'm having a hard time finding good, large images or her work... her website is a bit hard to navigate. Oh, how I want to know more and see more of her work! >_<

Richard White / Rico / Twelvty

I found this amazing artist on the Juxtapoz Reader Art section. As you can see from my obvious confusion in the title of this post, I'm not sure if his name is Richard White, Rico, or Twelvty. In any case, I love the wildness and color of his paintings and the sketchy expressiveness of his drawings. I'd surely love to own one of his pieces. What think you?

Collin van der Sluijs's Amazing Colorful Works

Hi-Fructose's little FB post almost made me scream today. It helped me discover Dutch artist Collin van der Sluijs.

His crazy sketchiness/wild spatter/paint insanity is just the thing I love! Booooo that he doesn't have a page I can "like" on FB, but I shall use the handy dandy Firefox bookmark. I would LOVE to have a print of his work. Time to go decide which one I want. Heee! On a sad note, I've been having this dratted cough that doesn't seem to be a cold. Perhaps I now have allergies at the late age of 27. :'(

Lu Cong's Mysterious Girls

I just adore Lu Cong's ethereal, mysterious, slightly sad girls! The luminescent colors seem to match his beautiful subjects, and although his medium is oil, I feel like they are very light on the paint, almost like sketches with a bit of color added. Of course I love that since I love DRAWING! What do you think of him?

JUURI Interview Video for Upcoming Solo Show, "Mirage -Maboroshi-" mir

@1614 - JUURI from christopher hunt on Vimeo.

Heeeeaaaaah! Here I am. I haven't died. I've just been
on the brink of deathtrying to finish everything on time for my solo show which opens this Friday the 13th (I know) at @1614 in Oklahoma City. Everything seems to be on schedule though (ie, everything will be finished mere hours before it needs to be) so I'm happy.

So, if you are in OKC or even Tulsa, come by and say hello! I will have about 15 pieces at the show... most have never been displayed before EVER. You won't want to miss it! Also the artwalk for the Plaza District will be going on, so I promise it'll be a fun night with tons to do and see all around the neighborhood. If you can't make it to the opening reception, the works will still be on display through June 7th.

Here's a FB event that tells you all about it. You should be able to invite yourself.
