Young aritists (like me) are expected to keep track of modern art. It looks impresive in a porfolio interview to be able to name a few modern artist and to beable to explain how they connect to one's work.

A Butterfly Effect Art Print by Norman Duenas

From the materials we use to the hands that ply them, we match the care that goes into everything we make to that of the artist that designed it. It begins with those thousands of artists entrusting their original work to another. It's the paper that isn't just paper, but pressed European cotton. It's the archival quality inks that mean your print outlives you. It's the craftsmen that print, cut, check and pack your art. All together, thousands of steps were taken to make your Art Print. This is our process. This is our art. Beautiful/Decay Artist & Design.

Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush.

Beautiful/Decay Artist & Design

His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them. Tim Simmons. Artist Statement Tim Simmons’ haunting, ethereal landscapes examine the multilayered relationship we have with our physical environment. Taken in natural, often very ordinary settings, his pictures nevertheless have a surreal, otherworldly quality, placing them in a realm beyond immediate recognition. This illusive atmosphere invokes a sense of the spirit of the earth, inspiring quiet reflection in the viewer and prompting questions about mortality and our place in the world. Tim Simmons’ Website. Birds by Abby Diamond. Fernando Vicente – Vanitas. Born in Madrid, Fernando Vicente begins his career in the ’80′s, mixing illustration with painting.

His unique style embodies bold and slightly aggressive visual concepts, giving him the freedom of playing with the composition. Experimentation is his motto, shifting and mixing different environments in just one work. In his series “Vanitas”, Vicente depicts the transient beauty of a woman’s body, juxtaposing an aristocratic attitude in his Hepburn-like beauties, with the reds and yellows of the flesh, all framed in a nicely textured cyan background. Or in lesser words: underneath, we are all the same. (All images via Fernando Vicente’ blog) The Art of Paul Kuczynski. Take a look at some paintings by artist, Paul Kuczynski.
