  • beans

    i am extremely weirded out! my old roommates and i had a stuffed polar bear(roughly dog sized and not real) in our house named hogan, which in a drunken night was randomly doused with lighter fluid and lit on fire. the flames were on hogan’s back, in the exact same spot that is painted above. tooooo weeeeeirrd!

  • M. Cavanagh

    The paintings are very thought provoking; the artist is attempting to draw attention to the planet’s problems. It is great art and with an important message to boot.

  • ahh i looove them! my favorite is of the seagull.

  • Brooke

    OMG this is so wonderful!!! i haven’t seen paintings so creative and well done for a while its impressive i love the concepts and the style gorgeous simply gorgeous

  • Amazing works of imagination, flawlessly executed! The bear,fox and the gull, are just flat disturbing! I keep going back to the fox. That’s brilliant! The animals, and most people for that matter have gotten no vote in how things are going. These are great paintings, but they are also strong political statements.

  • Mandi

    He does all the album art for Silverstein :3
    I love his work <3

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
