Julian Kreimer is a Brooklyn-based artist and critic who paints both observational and abstract work. His observational paintings are particularly beautiful. Created en plein air, these landscapes are simple observations yet Kreimer’s style seems to imbue them with something greater. His palette is often muted and his brushstrokes almost haphazard, yet with simple strokes and a keen understanding of light and color he creates incredibly beautiful paintings.
Jessica Hans is a talented ceramicist living and working in Philadelphia. She’s also happens to be a pretty great photographer and her photographs have me longing to leave the city and head out to the country with nothing more than some nice weather and a bunch of exciting places to explore.
During the week artist and designer Scotty Albrecht got in touch to let me know that he’s recently created a whole batch of new work for an exhibition that he’s having in Brooklyn this weekend. The show is a joint exhibition with artist Damion Silver and I have to say that the duo make for an excellent pairing.
Manolito’s Dream is a really sweet animation from Alla Kinda. Telling the story of Manolito, the film brings us on a journey through his subconscious as he stays slumped in the deepest of slumbers. It’s a wonderfully charming piece and it’s filled with great character design, a wonderful sense of rhythm, and a fantastic original score by Josep M. Baldomà.
Lately I’ve been loving the work of Emmanuelle Walker’s. I discovered her while flicking through the recent Nobrow 8 (more details here) and was instantly taken with her style of illustration. Originally from Montreal, Emmanuelle currently lives in London where she works as an animation director and illustrator.
