Currently on show at the Stanley Picker Gallery.

Some spectacular paintings by Robert Dandarov, what more needs to be said?

I don’t know that much about Eric White to be honest, I came upon his work whilst browsing around a while back. I saw an interview with him on Fecal Face. Lovely, detailed and often surreal work, with a touch of old Hollywood glamour.

I’ve admired Maureen Gubia’s work for a few years now, it just seems to resonate with me. I happened across this new piece whilst skimming through the recent uploads via my flickr page. It seems Maureen is accepting commissions for personal portraits made with corel painter x software, A4 sized, 300 ppi for the bargain price of $60 USD. Quality. Treat yourself.

I think I will always love paintings of sweets and cakes, the only thing I like more are actual sweets and cakes. With titles like Tsuweetnami and Parfait Column I was bound to like Justin Richel’s work. As per usual the rest of his portfolio is just as impressive, despite lacking any depictions of confectionary catastrophes.

Will Cotton is a New York based painter known for his surreal candy landscapes. His paintings explore themes of temptation, gluttony and indulgence. Only one word to describe them. Saccharine.

Next show:
February 12th – May 15th 2011 Paris, France

Nick Gentry is a British graduate of Central St Martins and has exhibited in the UK, USA and Europe. As part of a generation that grew up surrounded by floppy disks, VHS tapes, polaroids and cassettes, he is inspired by the sociological impact of a new internet culture.

His portraits use a combination of obsolete media formats, making a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. Using old disks as a canvas, these artefacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.

Françoise Nielly is an artist that hails from the South of France, a region which inspires her work. “I have vivid images of colors, of brightness. Yellow, sunshine, blue, heat, cicadas, pin smell, light… all of that classical imagery of South France is very alive as an experience inside of me. Maybe it is what led me to the use of fluorescent colors in my paintings.” I for one love that it did. Check out her body of work here.

I don’t know much about Fredrik Åkum, but I like his style. Website here, flickr here.

Clark Goolsby is a New York based artist who creates these excellent mixed media/collages. He isn’t just a one trick pony though; his sculptures are great too.

I’ve interviewed Kinsey over at Occupy on his working process, gradual change in style, the new print released today and an upcoming solo show. Enjoy

Beautiful digital imagery by Toronto based Alex Fischer. Via todayandtomorrow.

Quenched Consciousness is a cracking little Tumblog exploring the work of Jean Giraud, aka Gir, aka Moebius. Some NSFW, btw. Thanks to @TomGauld for the twitteration

David Taylor treads the line between silversmith, product designer and artist. While his one off products and made to order products are simply beautiful some of the other items on his site are very humorous. Everything looks incredibly well crafted.

RCA Secret is a unique annual exhibition and sale of original postcard-sized art, made by professional artists, designers and illustrators, plus current postgraduate students at the Royal College of Art.

2800 postcards are displayed anonymously and are signed on the reverse, so that the artist remains a secret until after the cards are purchased and their signature is revealed.

Over 1,000 artists have donated work to RCA Secret this year, including Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Yoko Ono, Jake Chapman, Olafur Eliasson, Yinka Shonibare, Sir Peter Blake, John Baldessari, fashion designers Manolo Blahnik, Mary Quant and Sir Paul Smith, animator Nick Park, photographer David Bailey, film maker Mike Leigh and designers Ron Arad and James Dyson, as well as students and graduates from the Royal College of Art.

Each postcard costs £45 and a maximum of four cards may be purchased per person.

Von was formally invited by Timothy Barber, Art Critic for CityAM, to exhibit at this year’s ING Discerning Eyes exhibition. Pictured are his two new originals, created especially for the show.

Love these. Looking forward to seeing them in the flesh on Thursday.
