Canadian artist Martin Ouellette’s paintings are inspired by photos of common objects decaying in the urban landscape. With his work he has set out to find the beauty in the banal as he observes the transition from mass-produced objects to trash. His vibrant paintings are full of details; worn out magazines, wires, rusted nails or wooden poles layered with staples and torn up paper, but one thing is sure, if anyone can make decayed objects look like a work of art, it’s definitely Martin Ouellette.

Dutch artist Tamara Muller‘s faces are almost always her own. They are stylized but rendered with an uncanny realism. Other parts of the canvas may be blocked with simple brushwork or even left unfinished, because it is those faces that matter.

The fine art of Japanese painter Takato Yamamoto explores themes of darkness, bondage, vampires, metamorphosis, love and death. The perspective is always calm and serene – never depicting violence – rather, it is impending or just completed. Yamamoto was born in Akita prefecture in 1960 and after graduating from the painting department of the Tokyo Zokei University, he experimented with the Ukiyo-e Pop style. Later on he further refined and developed that style to create his ‘Heisei Esthiticism’ style. His first exhibition was held in Tokyo, in 1998.

This is not the first time we feature Dan Witz, but he is one of those artists we like keeping track of as well as bringing you new pieces of his astonishing work every now and then. We are simply in love with this man. Born in 1957, Dan Witz is a Brooklyn, NY based street artist and realist painter. He grew up in Chicago and in 1981 (when we were still in diapers), he graduated from Cooper Union, on New York City’s Lower East Side. Witz, consistently active since the late 1970s, is one of the pioneers of the street art movement and his paintings have been shown in galleries throughout the US and Europe. In June 2010 a monograph, “Dan Witz. In Plain View. 30 Years of Artworks Illegal and Otherwise”, was published by Ginkgo press.

Installations, photography, video, music, performance, painting, drawing, texts… There doesn’t seem to be a single medium that German artist Theo Altenberg isn’t familiar with, but what we like the most are his candylicious oil on cardboard paintings.

As you might already know, we are huge fans of hyper realistic painting, so coming across the work of Ian Reynold was a real treat. Reynold is only 23 years old, based in Chicago and a classically trained musician. Yes sir, he hasn’t taken a single class in painting and everything he knows he has learnt himself. Normally, he works with oil on linen and spends up to 400 hours on each painting. Pretty impressive!
