    Hello, I’m really intrigued by your art. My girl friend and I are both fans and we like being a part of your vision. I make art too and I feel like our styles are pretty similar. If you would like I added my website in the reply.

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.

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

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

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!
