Brandon McLeanis a mixed media artist from Orlando, Florida. I actually found out about him by browsing one of my favourite shops Urban Outfitters and his work quite frankly, blew me away. He is currently working on a window display for Urban Outfitters which you can see here. See some of his work on flickr here. I love everything about his work, the colours he uses the vintage attitude in his work! Unique, kind of messy style in it that doesnt look like months of planing, but something spontaneous and random, unexpected!
About his work: “More than anything I aim to not take art that seriously, instead I intend to take the process into the unknown. Emerging myself in the mysterious bits of the art pieces and the characters they portray. Embarking on these so called character excursions, collecting odd remnants of lives, the heroes you never knew, and the ghosts they became. There is much to discover in mystery, and in looking at these faces you can’t help but be really, really curious about them.”
I was looking through some random magazines this morning and I found this artist that instantly caught my eye, her work is something that i was looking for in ages, it has a feel of fanzines, cut out, drawings, illustrations, its like a collage I thought you might want to check more if you like this kind of style ! I LOVE IT! :)
“Linda Zacks is a versatile art director, illustrator, designer and artist. She graduated from Brown University in 1995, where she studied semiotics and creative writing (with a little economics thrown in for good measure). She spent her junior year at The Rhode Island School of Design in the design department.
Since 1998, she has been creating unexpected connections between people, ideas, art and brands.
Her distinct ideas and visual style has also been behind a succession of innovative campaigns for Country Music Television, eBay, Nickelodeon’s The N, and other leading companies.”
I accidentally found this artist while looking at different blogs, i was really inspired by his unique, and creative style, he is writing his own blog in the blogspot http://robertmars.blogspot.com/ if anyone would be interested to see more of his work. His paintings employ layers of colour, subtly collaged printed matter from the 1950’s and 1960’s, and stark, black imagery.
