Dave Kinsey

I have been a fan of Dave Kinsey for a long time and was excited to see new work added his portfolio that featured some significant changes in his style. Excited to see where this evolution goes. This first one instantly reminded me of that Rene Almanza piece I stuck on the site awhile ago – also featured a dog and was similar in color.


Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    I just had a conversation about this topic with a buddy of mine. He was sending me some links of artists he likes and I was pointing out the ones that really worked for me. Almost all of them were artists that repeat their subject matter over and over. But they vary and twist it a little bit each time. Whether it’s a new way to render it or just adding a new type of detail.
    I think Kinsey is kind of doing the opposite of that… he’s taking his rendering style and approaching new subject matter. Either way the results are amazing.

    Dave Kinsey is one of my all time favorite artists. His style was very recognizable for a little bit but now it seems like he is going in a more abstract, dramatic approach. Either way, is work is very inspiring..

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
