Last year, when we were putting together our Hyperreal book, we loved that we got to include one of our favorite artists, Brooklyn-based Zaria Forman. Her brilliant paintings of icebergs, Greenland, Antarctica, the Maldives, and just amazing shoreline works are the types of painitings and drawings that you just want to live with and watch them being made.

We mentioned this on our Instagram yesterday, but this photography work by Ukraine artist Oleg Oprisco made us double-take because of its painterly and fantasy-world quality. These particular portraits with the flowers have such rich color quality that you almost can't believe its a photo.

We are proud to kick off the Fall season with a cover story on San Francisco-based fine artist Richard Colman. Richard's work has evolved and expanded so much since we last spoke to him in 2010, and his newest body of work continues to be an exploration on the way we as humans communicate and interact. We spent a few weeks with Richard in his studio in SF as well as around the city he calls home to catch a glimpse at the intricate details of the working artist's life.
