Tattoos may be a sign of creativity, rebellion, or self-expression, depending on your culture. Some people simply let it be but Shawn Barber, on the other hand, has a bit of an obsession with tattoos. All of his work involve tattoos in one way or another. He has published and illustrated at least two books on the subject. His distinctive style of rendering tattooed people in the most colorfully vivid way has made his work stand out from other artists. Unsurprisingly, Shawn is also a tattoo artist.
Angelo Musco is an Italian artist who is now based in New York. His photography is quite distinctive, it will take you a long unnerving moment to sort out all the human bodies in his photos.

Looking at her paintings is like drinking genius from a glass of harmony.
Her works of art and the features of their characters diffuse vibrations of eternity. An eternity that grasps beauty with its arms, but not typical beauty, but rather an indescribable beauty that is disguised as death and radiates the most intense emotions, emotions that make your bones tremble and leave you breathless in a world without time, returning to a world begotten of pure white.

Christian Guémy a.k.a. C215 is a French graphic artist whose stencil work has been pooping up all over Barcelona and Berlin. His work is notable for being colorful, astonishingly detailed, and ubiquitous. He has been in love with graffiti since he was a child. While Christian can paint with brushes and cans, he feels that stencils are the best way to quickly place something beautiful anywhere in the streets. According to him: “I paint in the streets people really belonging to the streets: tramps, but also beggars, street orphans from the poorest countries. This is a stencil tradition.”
Don’t worry, your eyes are fine. Ho Ryon Lee’s paintings are intentionally making you look twice at something any hot-blooded male would take a second look. Lee’s unique technique of painting an image as if it was a badly taken photograph is quite distinctive.The popularity his work is not, in any way, hurt by the act tat his subjects are women wearing short, flimsy skirts.
There are many talented painters out there who can easily fool you into thinking their paintings are photos. Jason de Graaf on the other hand, is in a class of his own. His talent is simply Olympian. Jason loves to play with perspective and light. Most, if not all, of his paintings highlight spheres, water, reflections, refractions, and shadows. According to him “My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision. Though my paintings may appear photoreal my goal is not to reproduce or document faithfully what I see one hundred percent, but also to create the illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs.”
