Kevin Corrado is a promising young artist who hails from Connectict, USA. He is currently obtaining his Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design at the Shintaro Akatasu School of Design. He was primarily into typography and only picked up a camera to document his work. He said: “The photos I took never seemed to be as good as the original drawing, so I kept trying until my fascination with the camera caught on.”. When asked about his inspiration, he replied: ” I am inspired by the youth of today who constantly raise bar by simply adventuring out and using their creativity.” Kevin is currently on a 52-week challenge he set for himself where he aims to upload a new conceptual photograph each week.
Fiddle Oak has a very bright future in photography. Fidlle Oak’s real name is Zev and together with his sister Nellie (and their camera named Betsy), they have created a fascinating world of miniature humans. Their images at at once poignant and thoughtful, teaching the viewer to be careful where they step, lest they crush something infinitely valuable in their haste. The artistic duo are both still in their teens, yet their work put some pros to shame. Fiddle Oak is from the USA.
Mu Boyan was born in the Shangdong province of China. In 1997, he graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts with a degree in Fine Arts. He obtained her Master’s degree in 1995 from the same university. His work has extensively been exhibited throughout the world. One of his more recent work tackles the touchy subject of obesity by featuring an adorable, but undeniably fat Sumo wrestler. Fat is fat, but there are two ways of looking at it. While an excess of adipose tissue may be unattractive to Westerners, in the East, it’s a sign of decadent wealth. After all, only people who can afford to be fat are those who can afford to eat more food than they absolutely have to.
Scratchboard illustrations are created by etching a design on thin China clay covered with black India ink using a sharp knife. Multiple layers of colored clay may be used along with aluminum foil. The result is highly detailed, precise and even textured artwork. Michael Halbert’s work is an expert in this field and has created more than 500 scratchboard illustrations. He has had extensive experience as a lay-out artist for Geisz Advertising as well as an artist and illustrator for Hanley Partnership and The Sporting News. He is now a freelance illustrator who gives his own tutorials.
Michihiro Matsuoka’s sculptures are made primarily of industrial resin and resin clay. The springs, nuts, bolts, and other bits and pieces of worn-out machinery give his hybrid animals their signature steampunk look. They’re given an acrylic finish which mimics a chipped and battered look. Some of Michihiro’s steampunk animals have movable parts. His work has had twenty-five exhibitions throughout Japan. He lives and works in Ichinomiya-shi, Aichi, Japan.
