Loving Vincent Trailer is a Must-Watch

Loving Vincent is an upcoming short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh

Loving Vincent: We love this first trailer for the upcoming Loving Vincent, an impressive short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh, which was made with twelve oil paintings per second and achieved by over one hundred painters. Conceived by Polish directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, every painter had to follow three week’s intensive training to learn the style of the famous painter and master various stop motion software. Production of the film continues until late August 2016.

James Rawson’s Postmodern Pop Art

James Rawson mixes painting & collage to create colourful pop cultural compositions

James Rawson: We love the paintings of British artist James Rawson, defined as a postmodern pop artist, who blends painting and collage to create explosive and colourful compositions filled with references to movies, brands, comics, and other iconic pop cultural products and objects. While his work reflects on popular culture of the last 50 years, James Rawson also depicts associated social problems such as over-consumption, poverty, junk food, and the omnipresence of advertising. We’d kill for one of his pieces on our wall – awesome work! 🙂

Tiffany Bozic’s Surrealist Paintings

Tiffany Bozic presents life’s struggles & triumphs through the intricacies of nature

Tiffany Bozic: We love these surreal paintings from the portfolio of American artist Tiffany Bozic and have posted a selection of them for you below. It seems Tiffany Bozic has spent the majority of her life living with and observing the intricacies of nature. Her work has the traditional air of tightly rendered illustrations but with a highly emotional range of surreal metaphorical themes. In her paintings and sketches, she presents her vision of life’s struggles and triumphs that are largely autobiographical. Her wide array of subjects are inspired both from her extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California. Over the years, Tiffany Bozic has developed a complex process of masking and staining so the natural grain can collaborate with each composition using multiple layers of watered down acrylic paint on maple panels of wood. She has had several solo exhibitions featuring her large-scale paintings and installations. Her work has also been included in numerous group shows across the country and spoken about at international events. She was also the first ‘Artist in Residency’ whereby she collaborated with the California Academy of Sciences, to create the “From the Depths” exhibit on the public floor of the museum in November 2007. Tiffany Bozic is a self-taught artist currently living and working in her cottage in Marin, California. For more of Tiffany Bozic’s amazing work, we recommended a visit to her website. Enjoy!
