Eco Finger Paint

Safe and natural creative fun for kids $24.00

Finger painting might be the very definition of innocent creative fun for kids. But there's nothing harmless about toxic chemicals like toluene, ethylene glycol, and polymers, which is what conventional store-bought paints contain. I'm no doctor, but those don't seem like things you want on your child's skin. Fear not, eco-kids has come through with a safe and natural finger paints......read more

In his intricatel ink-on-canvas works, Brooklyn artist George Boorujy uses a trained naturalist’s eye to depict iconic North American animals and landscapes, presenting a vision of life on the continent that is at once foreign and familiar.

Hazy, washed out works depicting summertime in the city

We see a lot of the blurred, soft focus aesthetic in filmmaking and photography these days, but not so much in painting. Here, South African artist Philip Barlow, whose work we spotted at This Isn't Happiness, pulls it off to incredible effect. In the series, titled simply "The City," Barlow depicts hazy, washed out figures and landmarks in the city, nicely capturing the heat island effect......read more

Artist creates walk-through canvas in downtown Chicago

For her latest work, artist Jessica Stockholder zoomed out, way out, to envision a three-dimensional painting covering an entire intersection in downtown Chicago. The installation, dubbed "Color Jam," was commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance, who let the artist run loose with her idea of saturating sidewalks, crosswalks, and even building facades in bold washes of green, blue and red. From......read more

Stockholm's Splendid Subway Art

read
Swedish capital's subway system gets an artistic makeover

We tend to think of subway stations as drab, functional spaces that exist to serve one purpose: moving humans from A to B. But as we recently saw with Nick Frank's beautiful, eerie photos of the Munich subway system, that's not necessarily the case. But the subway station beautification game belongs to Sweden's largest city. Over the last 55 years, Stockholm has commissioned 150 artists to fill......read more

We're loving these strange, surreal works from the portfolio of Tristram Lansdowne, a Toronto-based painter who depicts floating spaces that range from impossible landscape forms to haunting urban zones. His newer paintings and etchings, collected in a recent show entitled Fata Morgana (defined as a complex mirage that seen in a narrow band right above the horizon), explore landscape,......read more

Urban Landscape Paintings by Patricia Chidlaw

read
Eerily empty landscapes impart a sense of modern decay

Patricia Chidlaw's vision of Southern California doesn't reflect any of the things we typically associate with the area. There is no Hollywood glam, no surfer cool. Instead her landscape paintings depict a decaying, enigmatic California, eerily empty of humans yet filled with their imprint. Like mystery film stills, there is a sense of narrative to the paintings, but it's up to the viewer to......read more
