The work is inspired by the Terracotta Warriors and Horses...

Minneapolis based Michael Cina of Cina Associates might be better known for his commercial work for clients like Apple, VH1, Coca-Cola, Adobe, American Express, and the list goes on.

Regardless of the medium we're enjoying how Cina is able combine aspects of design, photography, and painting to create these wonderful original works.

We are enjoying the work of Bjorn Copeland this morning. 'Copeland guts and recombines found materials into psychotropic Pop assemblages. Having founded the experimental noise-rock band Black Dice while studying at RISD, Copeland's artistic and musical careers have developed simultaneously. A crossing of audio and visual ways of thinking have become almost second nature to him; when conceiving of Pop, it is with Paolozzi-style collages, DIY record covers, 50’s rock-and-roll and pop-electronic beats in mind.'

We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2012 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a "series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses." Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014...
