  • These remind me of that Wes Anderson movie about the fox…

  • triangulo

    loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove <3!!!!!!!!!

  • Kelsey

    they kind of look like storybook illustrations. they’re very calming, too.

  • Love these. Reminds me of Andy Kehoe:

    • Its kinda nice that these look more feminine than Kehoe’s work. They would look good together.

      • Actually, a while back I found Kathleen’s work and I felt an immediate kinship with it. I contacted her right away and we’ve been friends and have shown together since. It’s great seeing her worlds evolve over the years. Beautiful work.

      • wow that’s so amazing – i love that people immediately saw the connection and there actually WAS a real-life connection made

  • Bmac

    Yeah I was going to say these remind me so much of Andy Kehoe. I guess they’re both kinda folky/naive?

  • nice…love the owls.

  • Rathur, good call! They’re very good friends.

  • Hey beautiful choice of colors – very nice illustrations. The first own, the moon in the cage is really cool!

    My morning jacket Z cover art

  • Steph

    I adore these!

  • Hauntingly beautiful

  • Albert

    This look a lot like, Remedios Varo the Spanish-Mexican surrealist painter, not the same but a lot of the same style.

    • Andrew

      I agree

  • Amazing!

  • This work is amazing, I love the colors and style.
    Marios

  • love the style!

  • Love them.

  • gr3ck

    The first paint is very similar to “PAPILLA ESTELAR”
    of REMEDIOS VARO artist.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
