We have posted about the art of Yigal Ozeri recently on the site, but it dawned on us yesterday to look into some of his past works, and wow, he has some truly fantastic pieces in his career. Photoreal is one thing, but there is something unique about these paintings, something a photo can't capture with unique methods of captuing sunlight and color.

This past summer, we were very impressed by the new series of paintings by Brooklyn-based Alyssa Monks. Today, we look at a few new works, as well as a few studies from Monks, works that are characterized by the appearence that the subjects are being captured in the fog of a shower, with a bit of hiding and protection for the models.

We saw these new works by Swedish fine artist, Markus Akesson, yesterday, and they stayed in the back of our mind's all night, so we figured that must be a sign. The new paintings, most of them shown here, were on display at the VIDA Museum in Borgholm, Sweden, through September 30, 2012. The works are all oil on linen.

Yes, that is right. This is a ballpoint pen drawing. Samuel Silva, the artist, used 8 different colors taking 30 hours to complete it. No other media. Simply 100 % ballpoint pen. Silva is Portugal-based attorney who does art as a "hobby." I don't think much more needs to be said. Just look at it.
