It is with great sadness that I put this blog on hold for health reasons. Hopefully I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, I will keep sharing art regularly through my Instagram, so please follow! I’ll miss it here very much. ❤

Vilde Furdal Nymoen paints vertically elongated portraits of (mostly) girls, sans hair, with colorful worlds emerging from the top of their heads.
Each has its own theme, and they look absolutely beautiful displayed as triptychs. What do you think about the intentional omission of hair (I can’t help but be reminded of Eleven in Stranger Things every time I look at this art!)?
Christophe Gilland has a very interesting history indeed.
From his artist bio:
Christophe is an Irish-born Czech-Canadian yet French citizen; and after having lived in Orlando (Florida) and Vancouver, (British Columbia) he moved to Prague in 2009. The son of a classical animator, Christophe enjoyed a somewhat fairy-tale childhood spent behind the scenes at Walt Disney World’s animation studios, which played a significant part in his early artistic influences.
Themes since explored range from esoteric phenomenon and fairytales to science and alchemical practices. From childlike curiosities, monstrosities and psychology, to man’s relationship with nature, the archaic and the otherworldly.
I especially love his wildly creative take on the “anatomy” of common plants and creatures.
How about some marvelous monsters and other strange goodies? Today I bring you the captivating creatures of Juan Jose Surace.
I adore this new painting by Kari-Lise Alexander.
I first saw this detail on Instagram and it completely took my breath away. THOSE HANDS; so delicate and feminine, tinged with an undeniable darkness.
It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen her work in person, but it’s really a sight to behold.
Her paintings (often very large scale) transport you into a psychedelic wonderland of dark, sickly sweet delights.
Be sure to catch the show if you can!
