Some artists got that kind of talent that transports us to a world of complete awe, making us not believe that someone would be so much talented like that. That's exactly the case of Shintaro Ohata, an artist from Hiroshima. He came up with a mesmerizing technique of mixing both 2D and 3D pieces, paintings and sculptures. It looks like living drawings, just waiting to keep moving, not being stuck to that depicted moment. Fantastic indeed. Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world. For more of Shintaro's works, please visit his personal portfolio. He'll definitely appreciate your visits. Cheers! ;) Rainbow 2 Sparklers The end of the beginning Aquarium Loop AJISAI SAYONARA SANKAKU Firefly vapor trail Shelter from the rain Airplane
The deeply symbolic art of Paul Bond draws from the Latin American genre of Magic Realism, where dreamlike elements are blended into realistic atmospheres to uncover a deeper understanding of reality. Bond’s art illuminates a world where anything and everything is possible. They are uplifting illusions that delight the imagination and stir the soul. Bond shares the following about his work: “Altering and juxtaposing familiar objects gives me the visual symbols that become the language I use to reflect emotions or thoughts that I'm entertaining at the moment. Very often paintings are born from something randomly seen from a car window or a line in a poem or song. If it stirs my curiosity and touches my heart, it finds its way into my work.” Bond's award-winning magic realism paintings have been featured in galleries, museums and cultural centers, including the Gateway Museum in Farmington, NM and the San Diego Art Institute. His paintings are now in private collections throughout the US, as well as Australia, Germany and England. Corporate collections include the Hotel Hershey and PB&J Restaurants, and his art is featured in many contemporary art publications.

I don't know about you guys, but for me the most attractive and interesting part of the body is the eyes. That must be why I got into Tati Suarez artworks, her passion on building such interesting and charming female characters is both captivating and curious. I wonder where she get inspiration for such imaginary universe. Tati is also known for street art / graffiti work, you can see more about it at her Official Website. Tatiana Suarez (b. 1983) is a Brooklyn-based Miami native. Her charming style is distinctive -- first, the trademark eyes that draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Suarez takes full advantage of the oil paint's ability to create creamy, soft images on canvas. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. The doe-eyed figures look childlike, but also exude sexual overtones, ornamented with plants, insects and other unsettling accompaniments. Beauty is presented concurrently with exotic -- even creepy -- creatures to create enchanted narratives (Tati's Website).
Jason Edmiston is a illustrator since 1996, having already created work for fine arts, advertising, editorial, packaging and book publishing clients all around the globe. What impresses me most is the fact he's a traditional artist, most of his artworks are paintings in acrylic on watercolour paper or wood panel, techniques that can be really time consuming, but also give great results. Also he got a really good sense of humor, mixing references in order to create new ideas. You can see more artworks from Jason at his Official Website or at his Devianart Gallery.

I stumbled on this vehicles oil painting some time ago, what brought my attention to it was the fact they don't look like classic and glossy car illustration, but actually as a more realistic representation. It's really outstanding how Kevin Cyr can evoke decay, old fashion, graffiti and nostalgy into just one painting. For more information about Kevin Cyr, please access his Website.
Sit Haiiro did recently an exhibition with the name Noir. His artworks are not only extremely well-executed but seem to be tied with themes such as life, death, decay, nature and fashion on a really singular way. You can see more incredible artworks from Sit on his Website.

Anthony Lister is , on his own words, an inventor painter. Nowadays I would dare to say he's more than that, as besides all experiments he already found a quite interesting and expressive style. As he said in one of his interviews, he works for the process not for the result. You can see some more of lister at his Website.

Mike Mitchell have recently done a art show with the theme "just like us", as you can see the show featured several famous characters on some very common situations.

Photorealistic paintings on canvas are definitely in a whole other level of awesomeness. Seeing a painting for the first time and thinking it's actually a photograph is definitely a compliment for an artist like Pedro Campos. Pedro is a Spanish artist that makes these astonishing pieces of oil on canvas. He's definitely a very talented person... I can't even imagine me making something look good on Photoshop, left alone on canvas. This guy deserves more attention, so for more of his fantastic work, you may check his personal portfolio or the Plus One Gallery, in London. Cheers! ;)
I really love when I'm browsing my feed and I bump into something that take my breath away. And this happened Yesterday when I saw Nigel Cox's work on Minimalissimo. Nigel Cox was born in Ireland and used to draw cartoons and superheroes from comics as a child. Nigel calls his style "photorealistic minimalism" and as you will be able to see here, his paintings are superb. Nigel delivers an universe that suck us into a different reality and makes us live the reality we are seeing. It's almost magic. There is no way you can not get interested about his characters. Besides being super realistic the delicate lines and colors are amazing. Definitely worth checking out. Make sure to check out Nigel's website for more information.
If you are a fan of pop art and bright colors, this post will blow your mind. Lobo is an artist from Sao Paulo Brazil and he is passionate about painting pop art. His style is pretty solid, very bright mix of colors and stencils of illustrations lead the eyes on his amazing pieces. Enjoy! About Lobo Even though he is in love with Sao Paulo, Lobo lived many years out of his home town. “The experience of knowing different places and, integrating yourself to them expands your mind to new perspectives.” The diversity of situations the artist was exposed to, helped to develop one of his main characteristics: versatility. Lobo experimented with many painting techniques and different materials, as well as sculpting and interior design. He is a great admirer of the art of Burton Morris, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Peter Max, Roy Lichtenstein and Jackson Pollock. In the past few years, Lobao’s style naturally evolved into Pop Art. “I believe that even being a part of a well defined classification of style, an artist can transmit much of his personality and state of being to his art, making it unique.” Even though Lobo has been a publicist since the 90’s and worked in marketing agencies, he never thought about exploring his art commercially. But, after painting for a few friends, the demand for his art grew. Today, Lobo has sold over 1000 paintings in Brazil and in other countries such as Argentina, United States, Canada, Mexico, Italy and Uruguay. “Art is universal. It crosses borders, doesn’t matter its origin. It is like music and cinema, where I get my inspiration from, it has power to transmit messages to other places.” For more from Lobo visit his Flickr - flickr.com/photos/lobaopopart/ and his website - lobopopart.com.br/
