    Shin Kwangho.

    Shin Kwangho’s immense, abstract portraits use large brush strokes of vibrant hues to display his subject’s emotions rather than a face.  An idea of what is beyond the surface of the subject forms thanks to this, allowing a closer emotional connection through color and the liveliness of the paint strokes.  See more below!

    The Guardian’s Google Street View specialist Halley Docherty has released an incredible new series of images that bring together famous album covers and their modern-day settings. Docherty uses Google Street View to pinpoint the exact location that’s depicted in the album cover, and then meticulously lines up the Street View scene and the album cover so that they blend together seamlessly. The series features albums by iconic artists like Bob Dylan, Oasis, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin.

    Richard Tuschman (USA) - Hopper Meditation (2013)

    Richard Tuschman creates poetic photographic images for book covers, magazines, advertising and gallery exhibition. He began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990’s, developing the signature  style that synthesized his interests in graphic design, photography, painting and assemblage. This digital work found a wide audience in the commercial sector, and his work has since been featured on the pages of magazines, annual reports, book jackets, and catalogs for reknown clients. The importance of Tuschman’s work has been recognized by numerous awards. He has lectured widely on his artistic technique and creative process, and has taught at several insitutions.

    Drawing inspiration from the paintings of Edward Hopper, Tuschman’s series Hopper Meditations evokes the moody color palettes, cityscape backdrops, and solitary female characters that are signature elements in Hopper’s paintings. Tuschman explains, “I wanted to do a series of staged figurative narratives, somehow connected to past art, but also something I could take ownership of. The sets are all painted dollhouse size dioramas that I built and photographed in my studio. A lot of the furniture is standard dollhouse furniture, but some I made myself. I photographed the models against a plain backdrop, and then made the digital composites in Photoshop. This method gives me a great deal of control over every aspect of the process, and I can do it all in my small studio”. (text by Canbra Hodsdon)
