Mei Linn received her Diploma in Advertising & Graphic Design from The One Academy of Communication Design. She’s completing her final year of Graphic Design at the prestigious Curtin University in Australia. Her recent series, typograpography with leaves are quite fragile and unique.

Petrykivka is a style of painting which originated from the small Ukrainian Petrykivka village. This style of painting utilizes thousands of small brushstrokes, blending together to present a seemingly seamless element within the painting. The brush used for these paintings are in themselves unique, being hand-made from cat hair. Olena Skytsiuk, a renowned Ukrainian painter is one of the few artists who are preserving this dying art. She has been a member of the National Artists Union of Ukraine since 1978. Her work can be found in museums and private collections all over the world.
Steampunk as a sub-genre of science fiction that glorifies steam and its possible applications to modern-day technology had electricity not been discovered. German painter Vadim Voitekhovitch;s work is saturated with poignantly anachronistic images of steam-powered dirigibles set in the Victorian era. Realistically drawn, future generations just might think his paintings are historically accurate.
Write a Bike is a a conceptual project which seeks to combine typography, bicycles, and graphic design. Juri Zaech, the artist behind Write a Bike creatively manipulated the bike frame to spell out words, mostly people’s names. These bikes are clearly not meant for the road but this sort of outside-the-box thinking is a relief from the usual paintings and photographs featured in this site. Zaech lives and works in Paris, France.
There’s cute, and there’s the next level of cute: Fabo’s creations. The generally round shape, and the big, soulful eyes strike your cuteness chord when you look at Fabo’s creations. Not only are his critters undeniably adorable, they convey a wide range of expressions too; from timid, to curious, to sad. His love for animals is evident in all his work. This native of Honduras is certainly making his country proud.
Ivan Belikov loves making illustrations just for himself. Most of his work does get turned into prints buts he loves doing them for the sake of creating. Isn’t that the point of art? Creation for the purpose of aesthetic pleasure and creative fulfillment. Ivan has a fast-growing number of followers in Behance, a testament to his talent and skill in illustration. His animal hybrids, in particular, are garnering more than their fair share of attention from art enthusiasts.
This guy looks uncannily like a young Hugh Jackman. Artist Alice X. Zhang calls this portrait “The Time Lord”. She also made kickass portraits of Edward Cullen and Harry Potter, but for me, they’re but a sad, second-best. Alice graduated from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design with a major in Graphic Design. After discovering where her innate talents lay, she heartily wishes she’d chosen to major in Illustration instead. She Spends her time painting excellent portraits and does a bit of t-shirt and poster design on the side.

Songsforever describes herself as a journalist, creative writer, and fractal freak extraordinaire. She loves knitting, science fiction, steampunk. Anything weird, odd, strange, and random are right up her alley. Her gallery of colorful fractals is quite impressive. Fractals are basically detailed patterns that repeats itself. They’re psychedelic, to say the least and a breath of fresh air from the usual photos and paintings.
