Tang Chiew Ling is a graphic designer and illustrator from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her series “Fashion in Leaf” has captured the interest of fashion aficionados the world over with its minimalistic approach and ecological theme. Tang intentionally used inconspicuous and unattractive leaves to create something fun and fashionable. Most of the leaves she used were from her mom’s garden. Strategically placed, the leaves served as classy evening gowns to the models she drew on paper. Tang is one of those rare artists who can turn common, everyday objects into artistic creations.
Olga Melamory Larionova, a.k.a. FairyARTos, is a Russian artist whose realistic drawings put photographs to shame. She does most of her work with pens but her pencils are just as impressive, if not more so. Her drawings create a certain emotional pull within the viewers, urging them to look at her work a little longer. Such expressiveness from a a drawing is rare, and yet Olga consistently manages to re-create it in every one of her pieces.
Paper has long been a favorite medium of artists. Eric Standley, an aspiring modernist, created extremely detailed, three-dimensional, miniature stained glass windows using multiple layers of laser cut paper. His works are inspired by Gothic and Islamic architecture. Eric received his B.F.A. from the Massachusetts College of Art and his M.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design.
A glance at the rest of his work and you’ll be sure of several things: 1) Kim Sung Jin is one of the best photorealistic painters out there and 2) He’s a bit obsessed with painting lips. Kim Sung Jin graduated from the Hongik University for Fine Art in 2003. This Korean artist works primarily with oils on canvas and his sensually stimulating subject sets him apart from the rest. Painting is easy, even elephants can do it. Painting something so well that it can routinely be mistaken as a photograph is painting on another level. Kim is one of the rare breed of painters that can capture the realism of an image and translate it into an oil and canvas creation without losing an ounce of the sensuality.
Simen Johan is a photographer who captures majestic photos of animals usually not found elsewhere, with the superimposition of a background that perfects the image itself, making it too vivid to be true. His photos are remarkably striking as they express a new feeling of detail and harmony.
