Artist you need to know: Brian Nash

Artist Spotlight, The Latest By August 31, 2017 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Inspired by the aesthetic and iconic images of his childhood in the 60’s, Brian Nash’s art is full of color, quirk, and character. With its bright palette and pop culture references, Nash’s work is reminiscent of Warhol and the Pop Art movement of the late 50’s and 60’s, while simultaneously managing to retain a wholly original quality. Nash’s work also…

Artist Spotlight, The Latest By August 17, 2017 Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

  Born in Seoul, Korea and currently living in San Francisco, California, Jun Yang’s diverse background is mirrored in his art, with its eclectic mix of subdued, almost minimalist conceptual pieces, energetic abstract expressionist works, and whimsical and colourful pop art paintings.

The Online Art Market Series Part IV – The (Forgotten) Artist Experience

Art Market, The Latest By July 7, 2017 Tags: , , , , , 1 Comment

When I read this report it struck me at the end that they did not include the voice of the artist–a key component in this art selling equation some might say (not sarcasm). How is it that they interviewed buyers, gallerists, and online platforms, but not artists?  What did artists have to say about all this? What were their struggles…

Artist You Need to Know: Johnny Lannom

Artist Spotlight By November 3, 2016 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Regardless of winning the audience’s favor for artist of the week, Johnny Lannom is the perfect candidate for the job. After all, he’s rattled off unique street art-meets-impressionism portraits of Obama, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton (in the works). The Iowa-based artist distinctly ties himself to his era through the subject matter he chooses, and subsequently forces his stylings upon. Donald spewing from…

Artist Spotlight By October 13, 2016 Tags: , No Comments

Everything changed the moment Gabriela Horikawa took a break from her 9-5 as an interior designer in San Francisco and settled in the seaside town of Moneglia, Italy.

Artist You Need to Know: Elaina Posey

Artist Spotlight By October 6, 2016 Tags: , , No Comments

When I first encountered Elaina Posey’s work, my thoughts about it were pretty straight forward: I liked it. The lukewarmness of that statement, however, would not have lead me here, writing about her work and telling you to PAY ATTENTION because, to be perfectly non-academic about it, she’s got it going on. So what changed and how did you and I…

Life is a Safari: Artist You Need to Know, Shannon Foley Henn

Artist Spotlight By September 29, 2016 Tags: , , 2 Comments

After visiting Africa in last week’s post, I was somehow drawn back to this lively landmass across the pond, completely without trying. Trust me, when I began writing about Kanayo Ede I had known full-well we’d be discussing his Nigerian background, but I had zero idea that the candy-striped artwork of Shannon Foley Henn would take me to another African…
