Craig Tracy

Craig Tracy camouflages the human body as his canvas and eliminates the inner beauty of his model... He is a New Orleans artist and credits his vibrant creativity to the Mardi Gras culture that he grew up with.
"It is my intent to continue to explore and expand the perceptions and boundaries of this most ancient, alluring, and contemporary art form."                  -- Craig Tracy

Supakitch & Koralie

Had to share...this video is amazing.


Handiedan (Hanneke Treffers) of Amsterdam is a contemporary artist specializing in mixed media, drawing, and design. She graduated from the Academy for Fine Arts, St Joost Breda, Netherlands, in Photographic Design. She has been exhibited in dozens of group shows & five solo shows.
Handiedan's next exhibition will be a group show at Spoke Art Gallery in San Fransisco

HANDIEDAN’s mixed media artworks are a delicate cut and paste mixture wrapped in contemporary antiquity. She meticulously combines classic pin-ups and movie images with paint, ink, yellowed sheet music, old fashioned playing cards, money, stamps, Chinese papers, old wood, rusty metal and doodles as a playful mixture of filigree and a newfangled amalgamation of imagery.

Rune Guneriussen

The Norwegian artist, Rune Guneriussen photographs isolated installations of manmade objects in nature.
His dreamlike work has been exhibited throughout Europe and featured in publications around the world.

From his website:
The objects are implemented mainly in scenes cast in appropriate landscapes, and here they are subject to a certain carachter carefully laying out a story. It is an approach to the balance between nature and culture, but also a multiple reading of stories....
As an artist he believes strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting. As opposed to the current fashion he does not want to dictate a way to the understanding of his art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story...
