Sam Chirnside

 

If you’re feeling drained from this week – or this year – Sam Chirnside‘s psychedelic paintings might be just the thing to boost your energy levels. The Berlin-based artist, designer, and creative director mainly uses oils to create these trippy pieces that are equally at home on album covers or a gallery wall.

Hargreaves + Levin / Food Scans

 

I’m beyond ready for my local farmers market to open, and Hargreaves + Levin‘s Food Scans series is making me even hungrier for all that fresh picked produce. All twelve pieces are arranged in order of month, showcasing the beauty of each’s seasonal harvest by placing fruits and vegetables on a scanner in symmetrical designs.

Ekaterina Popova

 

Ekaterina Popova‘s paintings centered around the idea of home, and the unmade beds that often find themselves beneath her brush, have me thinking about sultry summer nights and the warm spring ones we’ve already had that left me throwing off the covers. Popova references old photographs, images, magazine cutouts, and books that remind her of her old life in Russia to create these fictitious places that will inevitable make you feel something.

Bettina Krieg

 

Bettina Krieg‘s drawings integrate loose patterns and topography, and most seemingly have no starting point. Extremely organic in feeling, Krieg’s work takes on a life of its own that’s full of motion and energy. Power seems to ripple just under the surface of every single piece she creates.

Ward Roberts / Courts

 

Ward RobertsCourts 01 and Courts 02 series is a tribute to his childhood spent in Hong Kong, playing basketball outdoors with other youth. Roberts’ photography captures the juxtaposition of stark concrete apartment buildings against soft pastel tones and open empty spaces.

Thomas Cian

 

Milan-based artist Thomas Cian is a very gifted man, especially when it comes to portraiture. His watercolor pieces combine colors and shapes that would never represent any part of the human form one their own, except when brought together under his brush they do and they’re lovely.

Amy Genser

 

I’ve yet to go snorkeling in my life, but I imagine it must be a little like viewing Amy Genser‘s mixed media art. She uses paper as pigment to construct each piece – layering, cutting, rolling, and combining it with materials like paint and masonite – to create natural forms that begin to emerge as each creation takes shape.

Eugenia Zoloto

 

Intricate papercuttings will forever blow my mind. Ukrainian artist Eugenia Zoloto creates her work on a larger scale that we usually see this form, which leaves me feeling less twitchy yet still completely wowed. Swing by her Etsy shop if you’d like to bring a piece of it home!

Stephen Knapp

 

Think it’s all been done before? Take a note from Stephen Knapp who created lightpaintings, a medium that’s been called one of the first new art mediums of the twenty-first century. Formed at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and architecture, lightpaintings are intangible, multi-dimensional compositions that need an entire room to be experienced
