Luca Luce Hand Art

Posted in art, body decoration, surreal with tags , , on July 28, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Luca Luce is a makeup and visual artist who creates incredible illusory hand art.


He blurs dimensions and space, sometimes with the use of little “props” to complete his designs.

…and sometimes through pure technique and perspective.


My computer is having issues saving images, so check out his site for many monsters and much creepy, hand-y goodness.

I’m pretty picky about fantasy art, but couldn’t help enjoying a few selections from Juri the Dreamer’s portfolio. I’m partial to the ones containing skulls.


Unfortunately, wordpress is being stubborn and won’t upload the other images I downloaded from the portfolio. But there are a few more skulls to be seen HERE.

Telmo Miel

Posted in art, street art with tags , on July 24, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Telmo Miel is a talented Dutch street art duo comprised of Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann.


From the artist bio:
After [meeting at the Willem de Kooning] academy they moved to the Sober-Concept Store, where Sober-Industries (also academy-friends) just started their new studio and shop space. This is the spot where the company ‘TELMO MIEL’ became official in the beginning of October 2012.


Working together seamlessly, they both enjoy working in realistic styles. With loads of contrast in subjects. Technique and style have a high priority in the artwork of Telmo & Miel, true craftsmanship is what they want to produce.


They work separately on ideas for murals and come together with the sketches to see if combinations can be made. The result is usually very surrealistic, with attention to detail. They always work on the same piece together and are able to switch places when ever wanted or needed.


As the collaboration progressed between Telmo Miel and all the other creatives anchored at the Sober Store, the overall creative platform was named Sober Collective. A team & family of creatives that can support each other in any way necessary. Everyone with their own set of skills, so endless conceptual combinations were made possible.

Michael Ramstead

Manifestation was the first painting I saw from Michael Ramstead. I love this representation of the colorful, boundlessly imaginative world we inhabit in our peaceful altered states.


Other works are slightly more menacing…

…or alien.

Is this an ominous image of the undead ushering a child into her doom? Is the skeleton excited to show her fantastic hidden realms? Is he just playing hide and go seek?

Although he’s a talented portrait artist, many of his pieces combine pop culture, technology, cryptids, ghosts and nature (as you may have guessed, those are my favorites.

Daft Art Tattoo

I just looked through hundreds of Eva’s tattoo designs (she is associated with Daft Art Tattoo, but that’s about all I can tell you since the sites are not in English).

I first noticed her designs that mimic cross stitch patterns. Pretty great.

But I love her style in general.

Unfortunately, my screen capture function doesn’t seem to be working right now so I couldn’t even grab many of my favorites to post.

I wish I could have shown more of her wildlife creations…

Check out more HERE.

Today I bring you two safe-for-work paintings by Lorenzo Alessandri, better known for his grotesque, controversial surrealist pieces.


He was unafraid to tackle horror, death, politics, sexuality and just about any uncomfortable subject. But I’m partial to his monster paintings.

I’m absolutely captivated by this Marta Adan piece; the glowing pink palette, the delicate beauty mixed with the raw presence of bone. The alchemical symbol for antimony (which represents the wild, animal spirit within man) graces her forehead. What a way to elevate a color so often associated with childish or hyper-feminized images.

A sickly but radiant green washes over this lovely woman, emblazoned with the symbol for arsenic. Some people are, indeed, poison.

I love her deviantART portfolio because it shows an impressive progression. Her early works are good, but she’s clearly refining and developing her style beautifully.

An occasional dark color scheme makes an appearance as well.
