A glance at the work of Oleg Dou might scare you a bit at first. But if it does, I advice you to look again and stare a little longer. That’s when the beauty becomes visible. Intimate in some way, distant in another. As if we remain in an everlasting curiosity of who the creature is we are facing. Yes, the digital works of Oleg Dou are one of a kind.

The paintings of Canada-based artist Elesavet Lawson take you away to a world unknown, where humans and emotions are explored in beautiful portraits. Her works are painted in a simplistic style, filled with colours, details and surrealistic aspects. I love how the people she portrays differ, yet carry the same characteristics in their faces. Whether happy or sad, their eyes express a kind of certainty (and perhaps even a bit of anger) that makes it very clear that they belong to the world they’re portrayed in. Wherever that may be..
Welcome to the bizarre world of Ray Caesar. A place where ladies have cat masks and tentacles, and babies wear tattoos. They have pale skins and sharp eyes that tell us they dominate in a world which is different from that of ours. And allthough his creatures may appear disturbing, Ray Caesar manages to portray a flawless beauty in each single one of them.
Boys, girls and dogs on wheels. Dinosaurs, poodles and all kinds of other beautifully odd creatures pass the painting table of Minneapolis based artist Jennifer Davis. What they all have in common, is that they are colour-filled, adorable to look at and shown in a playful unique style that truly characterizes her work. Perhaps it’s this strangeness of her animals that makes her work so appealing. Drawn in simple lines yet filled with lovely details…tiny hands…blushy cheeks… Jennifer’s creatures are loveable, alive, and have become admired and adored by many!
