Stuntkid



Thought I'd let you know about...

Jason Levesque, or “Stuntkid” as he is also called. He's a self taught artist who lives and works in America (Virginia, more specifically). His work is weird and beautiful, with inspiration stemming from his interests in biology and Earth sciences. He's one of those artists whose work you see illustrating magazines and whose name appears in tiny writing at the bottom of the page, though he has had regular shows and exhibitions since 2006 in the USA, France, Spain and the good old UK .#tallyho.
What I think is particularly sweet is the fact that he has a link to his wife's artwork on his blog. If only...


These works are exactly the kind of thing that I'd want to hang on my walls, but that my parents would hate - so I'd love it even more.

They're dark and kinda kinky (see left), and all seem to be of women which relates to my own style of work.



 I'm seeing a pattern here... I think he has a thing for hands...


Hands...


More hands...



Hand*



More hands...


 And, finally, hands.
Maybe it's a guy thing.


ANYWAY.
Here are some links if you liked the look of his work.

Abstract

I think the word 'abstract' has sooo many negative connotations, perhaps brought forward due to the declining interest in current art from the general public. A lot of the art we see around us is commercialised and so we, as humans do, tend to discriminate against anything different; however, I'm not saying that commercial art is a bad thing! All kinds of art should be celebrated - what I'm saying is that abstract art still has a place in current culture, and maybe we should have a little more respect for it. Okay, some of it can be really bad, but a lot of it is really quite aesthetically pleasing :)
That was deep.
Here's a piece that I created today. I used wax and fabric inks on a large piece of paper, then cut it into neat rectangles after it had dried. I don't know if there's meant to be some sort of concept with abstract art, but this doesn't have one :L

I just like that fact that you can put anything in a deep box frame and it looks chic and modern :L
