Olaf Bruening

Olaf Breuning is hilarious. His photos have a light-hearted sense of humor about them.

Temper Trap - "love lost" sweet. haha.

Stephane Fugier

I love Stephane Fugier's interaction with the human form. As a mostly figurative artist his work really excites me and gives me fresh ideas.

Laylah Ali

I love the way she talks about her process... I totally agree.

Kimiko Yoshida

Kimiko Yoshida's photos have been a great inspiration for me. The portraits in traditional and non traditional head pieces at times are completely stunning. The art and craft in traditional garb within cultures has always facinated me. I love how just with the use of these headresses and her use of the selfportrait tranform her and brings her all over the world.

Santa Sangre

Santa Sangre (1989) Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Amazingly bizarre surreal horror film. Completely overstimulates you visually- in a good way.



my heart goes out to Japan...

Joshua Hagler

A friend of mine sent me a link to some work done by Joshua Hagler. I really enjoy the intensity in his work like every piece is caught at the exact moment before you are cover in a messy explosion of goup.

Conrad Ruiz

Conrad Ruiz or "Conradical" is a painter that lives and works in the Los Angeles area. He received his masters where I did my undergrad- California College of the Arts (and Crafts). He is inspired by pop culture, Hollywood cinema, and chaotic climactic explotions. His work is definately mesmerizing and comical but at the same time he deals with popular notions of class, race and gender.

JR- TED talk

I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. JR. Right when I don't think I could love this man more than I already do, he blows me away again.

Richard Mosse

"Irish-born photographer Richard Mosse is not yet 30, but he has already documented some of the most astounding sites in the world, including the smuggling tunnels of Gaza, bullet-scarred Beirut and the wrecked palace of Saddam Hussein. His work might be described as conceptual documentary depicting significant issues of our time in unconventional ways.

This time he took his critical eye to Eastern Congo and came back with Quick, a series of photographs shot with Kodak Aerochrome infared film to create an alternative image of the complex social and political dynamics of the country. The film, designed in connectionwith the United States military during the Cold War, reveals a spectrum of light beyond what the human eye can perceive. He aims 'to shock the viewer with this surprising bubblegum palette, and provoke questions about how we tend to see, and don’t see, this conflict.'" -We find Wildness

Grant Cornett

Grant Cornett uses such incredible color pallets... Each color bounces and speaks to the next so well. If I saw these in person I would stare at these for hours and try to memorize these colors together... they are just so good.
