Dave Kinsey at FFDG

Street artist turned gallery artist Dave Kinsey has been a long time favorite of mine. Known for his bold works which combine tagging with abstract portraiture, Kinsey recently had a show at FFDG that was only up for two nights, but was filled with plenty of great work. It’s cool to see how complex and detailed his work has become while still maintaining his unique style.

Artist Erik Söderberg Plays With Geometric Shapes and Organic Chaos

Erik Soderberg - fractalsmaximus

“Why do humans tend to prefer strict geometric design when nature seems to flow in a chaotic and organic way?”

That’s the question Swedish cross-media artist Erik Söderberg poses with this series of images. Exploring fractals, patterns and geometry in relation with chaos, flow and contrast, Erik’s work uses the phi ratio (1.618) as a golden mean to create his work.

No monkeying around with Hiroshi Watanabe’s new photo series

Hiroshi Watanabe monkey photo

You can’t go wrong with pictures of clothed monkeys. You just can’t—the Internet is bound to eat that shit up. What otherwise sounds silly, has been tastefully executed by US-based photographer Hiroshi Watanabe, in an upcoming exhibit titled Suo Sarumawashi. I believe that Watanabe’s primate photography foray is not only eye-candy, but also matter for the creative mind too.

‘Diplopia’ – A great collaboration from illustration team Never Ever Even

Diploria

I was checking out the work of cartoonist and illustrator Eleanor Davis the other day when I discovered Never Ever Even, a collaboration project she started with artist Katherine Guillen. Described as an “Illustration and Design Superteam”, the duo have worked together on and off for the last few years. Together they have worked on a small but fruitful collection of projects, my favorite of which is a series of 8 gouache paintings called Diplopia.

Vibrantly colorfuled, geometric graffiti pieces by Nelio

Vibrantly colorfuled, geometric graffiti pieces by Nelio

I spent a bunch of time falling down the rabbit hole that is Flickr last night, finding a bunch of great artists to write about. One of my favorites was Nelio, a French graffiti artist who’s work uses tons of bright colors all laid out int he most interesting, geometric ways. When I see work like Nelio’s it truly solidifies the idea that graffiti can be art. I would love to see his pieces around Los Angeles, I think they would liven up the neighborhoods.

You can see lots more of his work on his Flickr and I’ve picked up some of my favorites which you can see below.

Playful ceramic objects by Studio Arhoj

Playful ceramic objects by Studio Arhoj

Started in Tokyo now based in Copenhagen, Studio Arhoj is the creative outlet ofAnders Arhoj which he started in 2005. Looking at his work and his collaborations I feel like he produces a true mixture of Japanese and Danish cultures. There’s a strong sense of craft paired with a bit of whimsy, imbuing everything he makes with a charming personality.
