Ahmet Cambaz had a late start in the tattooing game, but has already proved himself as a formidable ink artist. After 7 years of doing cartoon work for an Istanbul-based magazine, a tattoo equipment set gifted to him in 2013 by his wife caused a shift in his creative vision, and his true craft began to shine through.
Simple, yet sublime, the designs Cambaz produces have a distinctly modern feel, yet also remind us of the whimsical storybooks we used to read as children. “My tattoos are micro style, geometric, and direct,” he told Vice Creators. “We are living in a complicated age. That’s why I prefer to create minimalist lines in my pieces… Everything is now needing to become simpler.” What the tattoos forgo in colour and convention, they make up for in quiet, understated beauty.
In this most time, long hair is connected with beauty. However, it can also be a horrifying sign of horror movie. Obviously, Chinese artist Hong Chun Zhang is really good at creating horrible atmosphere with hair.
In her recent works “Hair Object“, Hong creates graphite drawings that replace everyday materials like water, paper, ice cream, seaweed and bread with swirls of hair. According to Hong “The idea of these graphite drawings and ink paintings is about humor, beauty and repulsion. To me, long hair not only looks beautiful, but sometimes it can be very unattractive in particular settings such as hair in the hamburger, egg, wineglass, cigarette, toothpaste and sink. I combine hair and daily used objects to evoke different feelings and emotions through a surrealistic approach.”
Picture the USA in late 1997, but with less boy bands and more post-apocalyptic desolation. That’s exactly how Simon Stålenhag envisioned The Electric State, his upcoming latest installment to an impressive streak of successful artbooks, and we’re completely lost in how fascinating it turned out.
The artist and author, who hails from Stockholm, Sweden, bases The Electric State on “a runaway teenager and her yellow toy robot,” an unlikely pair that travels the West Coast in the aftermath of a massive technological meltdown, which has apparently resulted in brutal warfare between monstrous ‘battle drones’ and sheepish humans controlled by individual Virtual Reality helmets. It’s a dark, confronting saga, and one Stålenhag vividly illustrates to the point that it looks terrifyingly real. His
If you’ve got an old soul, you’ll be enamored by the delightfully old-fashioned work of Moscow-based artist Elena Limkina. Every week, she offers the world a glimpse into her personal sketchbook, and its pages tell vivid stories of nature, architecture, and classical paintings.
Though Limkina specializes in watercolour materials, she’s also very handy with a dip pen, and uses both to bring shadows and luminosity, respectively, to various botanical and scientific illustrations. “I have been painting since childhood,” she writes on her official website. “I’ve been studying medical engineering, but my passion for fine arts has taken precedence.” A wide variety of influences have clearly come to bear on her style, such as Baroque, Renaissance, and perhaps a touch of modernism; her flower paint
"It’s possible that you guys have seen my comics float around now here and there. If you don’t know me, my name is Prudence. I’m an awkward human being, trying to find my way through life like every other twenty-something.

Now, something has changed though since last time I posted something on here. Back then I was a healthy, awkward human being in my twenties going to college. Now I’m a sick, awkward human being in my twenties wandering around, not knowing what comes next.

You may know artist Cj Hendry for her black and white work, including a Chanel perfume bottle and Kayne West’s face on a $100 bill. But for Hendry’s latest art project, she took quite a turn from black and white pieces to vibrant, color popping art.Show Full Text
Titled Complimentary Colors, the vibrant series was commissioned by the fashion brand Christian Louboutin for an exhibition during Art Basel Hong Kong. Even though the pieces look like big blobs of paint, the only thing Hendry used for the pieces was colored pencils. It took a lot of patience, layering of the dry pigment, and expert handling of the medium, but the final hyper realistic art pieces created were so full of sheen and viscosity, you’d never believe they were created using pencils.
