Finnish artist Jarmo Mäkilä has some creepy artwork, but in the most subtle of ways. They’re creepy because they often depict human beings tromping around, completely oblivious to all of the animals around them that are lazing around, having sex, and climbing trees. I’m rather unclear as to what Mäkilä’s paintings mean, but I gather it’s a still, lonely world his characters are living in.
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
