Tumblr of the Week: Amy

We came across this week's tumblr while reading some fanmail we received from Aimee Kinsey, a 17 year old art student in England. What attracts me to Aimee's art is the grungy, collage-y elements, reminiscent of found art. My favorite part about her style is that she isn't restricted by having to stay within the paper she's using, sometimes cutting holes in it to show odds and ends lying underneath. It's fun to see artists unafraid to add dimensions to their paper and create layers with their sketches! Follow her along at aimeedanielle.tumblr.com and encourage her to keep doing what she's doing.

Getting Sacred with Adrian Landon Brooks

Adrian Landon Brooks is a Houston, Texas artist that I first came in contact with through graffiti art. We were both graffiti artists and had a lot of mutual friends. Many years later we were both living in Austin, Texas and this is when I became more acquainted with his non graffiti art. We exhibited together in a group exhibition and also collaborated on a mural. He often paints on found objects and draws on old photographs. I love his use of color and strong imagery often focused on the concept of a savior bringing in aspects of religious painting such as the use of halos. He says about this, "I am drawn to sacred art of all kinds, especially art that emphasizes a 'savior.' Finding my creative voice brought freedom and redemption from everything that ails me. When I am creating work, the outside world is on pause and I can completely let go of all the trials and tribulations of the day. I feel that this is represented in the iconic images I create and is my attempt at paying homage to something greater than myself."

Check out more of his work at AdrianLandonBrooks.com and @AdrianLandonBrooks on Instagram.

Matchbook Paintings





These images will make you look twice, and maybe two more times after that. Joseph Martinez paints inside matchbooks with such precision and patience you wont believe it until you watch the video for yourself. The art is often times smaller than the size of a dime.

I can't imagine anything more fascinating than seeing these matchbook paintings in person. Fortunately, those of you in San Francisco will have the opportunity at his upcoming show, A Little Piece of the Bay.

Scroll down, and you'll be asking yourself again and again how he's achieving such depth, shadows and detail.

Explosive

Valeria Rey Soto draws patterns, and boy, she does it well. She uses a mix of pen, markers and watercolors to create intricate, colorful, yet still delicate bursts of visual beauty. One after the other, somehow they just make you feel good. She even has an etsy account with a limited number of prints available for sale. Buy one, it'll make your wall happy.
