    Amazing use of geometric shapes. Colours are so captivating.
    I can’t keep my eyes away.

  • i love em too.

  • I feel like the first one looks like small organisms under a microscope.

  • the colors are so vibrant! i really love these.

  • triangles make the world a better place.

  • tim

    i love this style…i know artists “steal” from one another, but is this biting Chris Johanson’s style a little too hard? I know Johanson a lot of people, but the palette and shapes in many of MWJ’s work is soooo similar….Or are artists in the Northwest, Oregon, Northern Cali, etc. just tapping into the same “consciousness”?…….huh??

    • i actually see very little of Johanson’s style here.. maybe Andrew Schoultz or Thomas Campbell but Johanson’s style is quite a bit different

  • i want this guy to make a house to live in basically

  • Monika

    The colour wheel comes to life!

  • snoisy

    wow
    the fourth one down is like a cross between Bitte Orca by Dirty Projectors and Hey Everyone by Dananananaykroyd
    fantastic albumen and lovely pictures
    well done mr jacques

  • Mary Katherine K.

    I love the Triangles!!! They’re my favorite shape
