After a long talk with Conor Harrington recently, we have become very fascinated with the idea of motion in paintings. When we came across the work of Hong Kong-based Simon Birch recently, we loved the way the artist depicted motion, both in his subjects and also with the surreal elements to his paintings.

Gorgeous illustrations by a young artist by the name of Peony in Hong Kong. Born in 1990, Peony has just barley begun on her creative journey, but judging from her descipline and talent, we have a feeling she has nothing to worry about. Soft human/animal portraits filled with flora, fauna and emotion.

Wow, if you think this image looks like a photo, wait until you get to the ones of the cats. We just stumbled across the work of Paullung in the wee hours of the morning, and it took us a bit to start seeing that what we were looking at were illustrations. The Hong King-based artist definitely has a good hand.

Victo Ngai is a New York based illustrator from Hong Kong. "Victo" is a nickname from "Victoria", which is a leftover from the British colonization of Hong Kong. As apparent in her illustrations, visions of travel, adventure and leisure play an important role in her depictions of the present and future.

This may look like the typical, vintage-inspired robot. But Hong Kong artist, Kacey Wong, has created this mobile living unit that "protects people from radiation leaking from nuclear power stations." This robot comes on the heels of Wong's robot for rich people turned homeless by the credit crunch.
