    You know I love that painting of Raj. I think the painting of your dad and his bro turned out really well also.

  • Nola

    Very inspiring work. Really love them all.

    Continue to enjoy your very distinctive style! If you moved back to Steamboat, it would be great to have you in our gallery!

    I agree with Lavurn above, the simplicity is great, very refreshing! Really nice work. I think one of the tricky things as a painter, is to concentrate on the subject/concept and not the style, and to get the fine balance between simplicity and detail, but its tackled perfectly in these :)

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!
