New art by Brazilian artist Pedro Pio

Pedro Pio Reader Find

By Pedro Pio in New Art on Tuesday 2 October 2012

I am a Brazilian artist. I’ve always had this strange obsession of drawing monsters and unrealistic beings. But at least I try to soften them with a lot of colours that end up not being as bright as I wanted them to be, since I’m using mostly coloured-pencil on paper.

I’d seen this guy’s illustrations before and then I found out he was going to do one of me, so was pretty made up. His style is so cool and he has worked for many great mags and brands already.

Erika Jane Mallette Reader Find

By Erika Jane Mallette in New Illustration on Saturday 23 June 2012

The art of Jessica Ward is beautiful, macabre, and haunting but charming and all done with graphite on paper. Her female figures stare quietly, despondently, deformed and captivating.

Pencil and watercolour drawings by Izziyana Suhaimi

Denimu Contributor

By Denimu in New Art on Friday 22 June 2012

Izziyana Suhaimi blends black and white pencil and watercolour drawings with colorful ornate embroidery in her seductive textured illustrations. Using craft based techniques, she is attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centered age of today.

Layered drawings by Nobuhiro Nakanishi

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Wednesday 13 June 2012

Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi has a thing for layering multiple translucent frames of pictures to get a rather gasp-worthy effect. His works are probably best experienced live, though we are already quite happy to look at pictures of these pictures.

By Matt Blackwood in New Art on Tuesday 12 June 2012

Human behaviour linked to places is what fascinates me as a writer. Its patterns, impact and influence, all combine to create tangible location-based experiences. And these days, wherever you go, there you and your smartphone are, and thus, the joys of GPS art.

Colourful art by Keith Warren Greiman

Keith Greiman Reader Find

By Keith Greiman in New Art on Wednesday 30 May 2012

As we are approaching summer here in Philadelphia, I am preparing to stay inside for the next three and a half months. Hot and humid is an excellent motivator to lock yourself in the studio. My most recent work seams to be infused with some sort of rites of Spring/rebirth vibe. Strange for a guy who prefers a foot and a half of snow over a sunny beach any day of the week. Must just be something in the air.

New art by Rose Nestler

Melissa Murray Reader Find

By Melissa Murray in New Art on Saturday 19 May 2012

Rose Nestler’s work causes me to reflect on the nature of objects: their present uses and uncertain fates once no longer needed, their effect on our subconscious states, and the memories they can hold. Nestler’s work combines the emotional life cycle of objects in all forms through moving and reflective drawings, paintings, and installations.

New drawings and etchings by Nina Carelli

Melissa Murray Reader Find

By Melissa Murray in New Art on Saturday 19 May 2012

Nina Carelli’s workstems from a strange, reflective land where the cosmos dances with the man-made. It calls upon ideas of death and the experiences beyond, while tethering our thoughts back to Earth with images of pop culture seen through coke bottle lenses. Carelli currently has a solo show at Brooklyn’s Causey Contemporary through May 27.

An Emptiness: a new drawing series by Melissa Murray

Melissa Murray Reader Find

By Melissa Murray in New Art on Tuesday 15 May 2012

In my new series of drawings, An Emptiness, I aim to create a scene of loss and despair, an aloneness in a world of chaos. The scenes are set in an old house by the sea in New England. I draw a lot of inspiration from the passing of time in the structure and the loneliness of its inhabitability.
