Ramadhan Edwin's "Aves"

Illustration // Tuesday, February 11, 2014
Ramadhan Edwin created this project entitled "Aves" as a contribution to an exhibition organized by his college. The project illustrates two parrots in flight and a mocking bird that was perched on a tree trunk. These illustrations were designed using many small triangles in order to make it look like a work of mosaic. By displaying the linework and colorwork and then removing the lines, we are able to see the painstaking and very clever method Edwin used to create this bold piece of artwork. 

Louise McNaught's Celestial Realm

Illustration // Tuesday, February 11, 2014
"Louise McNaught‘s creations feature nature, animals, and the celestial realm in glorious, blazing neon hues, where the animals are God-like, Sublime and ethereal in their luminescence. Not wishing to limit herself or her subject matter, McNaught has a mixed-media approach which usually manifests in painted-drawings on traditional and sometimes unusual supports, such as celestial maps. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man’s destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance. By subverting traditional representation she hints at darker consequences, yet paradoxically giving animals an elevated status with the neon paint making them look as though they have their own inner light and are literally shining from within. Just as we use highlighter pens to mark areas of importance, McNaught is doing this with fluorescent paint. By drawing the viewers attention to the animals presence and energy, McNaught is hoping to share with the viewer the awe that the natural world inspires within her."  

The Art of Leo Eguiarte

Illustration // Tuesday, February 11, 2014
"Leo Eguiarte is a Los Angeles-based artist. Painter by trait, and a visual artist by nature. His work mainly deals with the opposite polarities of those who have it all versus those who are in dire need. A proud son of immigrant parents, Leo Eguiarte’s American experiences are shaped as an in/outsider through this post civil rights hostile environment that preaches freedom for all, yet limits opportunities for the majority. His work often references symbolism found in ancient cultures and the appropriation of it from groups outside them. Through this dynamic the work conveys how history tends to repeat itself."
