Justin Lee Williams creates strange, eerie images. They play with the surreal, compiling unusual collections of subject matter and creating eerie, distorted subjects. We like that he's keeping it odd.

We have shown the work of Alexa Meade on the site before, but we saw it again this morning and wanted a reminder on just how remarkable the results are of her real-life paintings can be. She covers her subjects in layers of paint until they in effect become a painting that exists in reality.

Mazzarella Thomas' work reminds us a bit of Chris Johanson, with its own twist. Thomas' paintings use a very voyeuristic perspective in which we seem to be peeking into the lives of his little characters. We observe business proceedings, artists tediously ruminating over paintings, odd urban landscapes, bedroom push-ups . . .

Wayne White takes thrift store paintings, initially bad art, and recreates these kitsch items by implementing ironic text that seamlessly become part of the initial canvas, weaving in and out of the cliché landscapes that we are all used to seeing in our dentists' offices.

We have always enjoyed the work of Hamburg, Germany's Heiko Müller, seeing that his work has elements that fit into the origins of this magazine and feature an evolution as well. He just posted a few new pieces from 2011, but we decided to grab a few more pieces from the past few years to show you.
