Pigment Transfers By Hollis Brown Thornton.

I first saw Hollis Brown Thornton‘s work on Tumblr and was immediately enamored with it. Her pieces have the aesthetic of a good collage, but with a much more organic quality thanks to the inherent randomness of pigment transfers. Her acrylic paintings and ink drawings have the same kind of feel to them as well,...Read...

3D Visuals By Xia XiaoWan And Nobu Nakanishi.

Two artists, Xia XiaoWan and Nobu Nakanish, have both decided to use thin sheets of material arranged like dominoes to create visual depth. While both explore the use of visuals and space in similar manners, the resulting works are dramatically different, in terms of mood and overall vibe. — Xiao XiaoWan Painting From The Inside...Read...

Textiles are amongst the most wasteful items human beings consume on a regular basis, so why not turn ugly secondhand clothing into art? Derick Melander does it.
