Sandy Bleifer Ikebana

I have created artistic interpretations of my own Ikebana arrangements and, as I have done in much of my previous work in other subjects, revealed the distress that persistently undermines our aspirations of beauty and serenity. I think of these diptychs as “Memorials” because I have noticed the spontaneous collection of flowers, notes and memorabilia at sites of tragedy – and these roadside arrangements are as much a human response to loss as formal public memorials.Read More →

Moon Fruit by Moollz

This was the cover art for my first EP! I put this one in here because I have always felt a very strong connection to the moon, and I think it represents a very strong energy for a lot of my friends, as well. I also have always loved children’s book illustrations, which inspired this cover. Making this was definitely one of those “what if” pieces for me, where I just kind of let my imagination do its thing. What if you peeled open the moon and there was a 14.6 million square mile kiwi inside?Read More →

Chris Bonno photo by Dan Dion

The week began with Sexy Coco Conan. It progressed with Tomato on the Range as well as delectable Une Paire De Poires (that’s french for pair of Pears). Who doesn’t love Vincent Price; and the Eye of the Agamatto is a treasure indeed. Steve Martin from the Jerk poster was highlighted to emphasize Chris’ many techniques and finally, the revisit of a classic, The Apartment. Need we say more. What a week!Read More →

Hagop Belian

One of Hagop’s “Aristocrats” paintings is a woman wearing a draping headscarf and an embroidered blouse. Her features are pretty and delicate, with small petal lips and thin brows. But this is not just a depiction of a Middle Eastern woman—a large dragonfly with its wings spread obstructs the view of most of her face. “Metaphysically, the dragonfly represents the breaking of an illusion, and the fact that it’s over her eyes [shows] the breaking of the illusion of the Middle Eastern woman,” Hagop explained.

Several one-man shows were held in local pubs and libraries during his teenage years. Read More →

Harold Cleworth 59 and 60 Cadillac

 In 1972, frustrated with the London scene, a trip to California convinced him to stay and begin his career as a fine artist, choosing the Automobile, his first love since childhood, as the subject. A series of posters followed, amongst them the black 300 SL gullwing Mercedes, which rapidly became the most popular automotive image on the market. Read More →
