the paintings of michael ward

i am truly enjoying these well done realistic works in acrylic from california artist michael ward. michael dedicated a good deal of time in the 1970’s roving around southern california and taking photographs, which resulted in this ongoing series of walkabout pieces. since the pulse and landscape of the area has evolved and changed over the years, many of these scenes no longer exist, and the once banal subjects take on a surprising and new nostalgic meaning. i just love the earnest quality about them, not to mention the appealing pops of color and pristine detailing (especially in the vintage fonts). and let’s not forget the light either.

kareem rizk collage art

ooh am i loving these fun limited and open edition collage prints from melbourne graphic designer kareem rizk today. to create his traditional collages, kareem uses a multitude of materials including oil pastels, acrylics and pencil. he also uses digital techniques to add pieces to his collection. to me either technique produces a consistently meticulous assembled piece, with strong retro-modern influences and intelligent use of negative space.
