Ok so the embroidery over photos thing can seem a little gimmicky at times, an original idea picked up by hobbyists and splashed over the internet but hey if the results result, all the power to you. Like with these mindful and elegant designs stitched by the multi–talented Shaun Kardinal. Soothes the soul.

I love how this effect adds an inter-dimensional quality to the pieces. A vision of the unseen perhaps.

Ok, these paintings are what it’s all about. Pushing juxtaposition to new heights by utilizing the generational contrast of bold colours and lighting reminiscent of the romantic period. Her work seems to illustrate the movement of time and the evolution of art in this way, with bursts of pop colour emanating from soft flowing backgrounds.

Or it just reminds me of ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’, which is also cool.

The scribble master Cy Twombly, who’s passionate, sparse but chaotic paintings fetch upwards of 50 million dollars, was also a delicate photographer in the last years of his life.

I’m completely captivated by his soft, sensual, moody polaroids. Definitely made me want to reinvestigate his controversial paintings with a new appreciation for the artist. Check it.

Love these! The colour palette goes perfectly with the flowing sensual weirdness of these digital collages.

Heavily influenced by the existentialism of Frederich Neitzsche, his pieces seem to pull and warp consciousness into a flowing mental mess perhaps where time does not exist. I’m really digging this.

He has a huge body of work check out his Instagram for more: https://www.instagram.com/dromsjel/
