LA based artist, Brian Smith, has an instantly recognizable painting esthetic. His dark futurescapes emanate an aura that is both beautiful and alien. Working both in the figurative realm and the abstract arena, he channels a consistent sense of vast expansiveness, even in his smaller works. The inspiration for his transformative painting’s subjects come from a variety of sources. Some of his hypnotic portraiture communicates a subject frozen in a state of metamorphosis- as if simulating the moment of impact from an intense explosion, or the warping effects of time travel, or the painful reconfiguration of a being in a state of shape shifting. Brian’s paintings transport you to a place that is feels cold and isolated. Although I greatly enjoy visiting this foreboding place, it is not an environment I would want to be trapped inside.
This painting known as “The Anguished Man” was kept in Sean Robinson’s grandmother’s attic for 20+ years before Sean Robinson inherited this painting from her. She warned him about the painting, and said it was “haunted.” She told him that the man who painted this, mixed his own blood with the paint and after he was finished, killed himself (why would you keep this).
After Robinson took this home with him, he started experiencing some strange things as well. His wife felt her hair being stroked from time to time, they would see this shadow figure walking around the house and crying, and Robinson was even pushed down the stairs by something. There is also a video you can watch.
Whether this is true or fake, this has to be one of the creepiest paintings I have ever seen.

Phil Hale, a London based illustrator, knows what to do. His illustrations are incredibly rich with disjointed movement, explosive energy, and raw masculinity that which all combines into an overwhelming visit to drama itself.Hale‘s caught-in-the-moment subjects in contexts that can be described as a bit dark reminded me of the time I fell in love with J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye. In my fantasy world, Hale and Salinger would be exchanging ideas for a collaborative project to illustrate Catcher over a casual dinner (Salinger making sure the plot in the book is followed), where I would join them for the meal as a mutual acquaintance they don’t mind having around, share a few laughs with the fellows, and silently admire them both while watching them talk.
Jaz Harold is a New York based fine artist. Her recent works are soft and inviting, rich with plush fabrics, yarns, and pastel hues. Sexual undertones (and overtones) and themes of self reflection or inner dialogue are incorporated throughout her oeuvre. Using an aesthetic that consciously appeals to child-like naïveté, Jaz’s work softens the emphasis on the ego, ritual, intimacy, and stigma that society generally attaches to sex. Cherry blossoms (sakura) are a perfect balance of sexual innuendo, beauty, and innocence. The cherry blossom, symbolizing love in many cultures, adds an additional element in a body of work that covers both areas- an innocent love, and a simple uninhibited lust.
"Taking Justine and Juliette from Marquis de Sade as a starting point, this new collection from Crajes is a powerful series of oil paintings and ink works on paper. The strength of their collection is in every detail, the execution and the technique are wrapped in a halo of sensuality, fragility and perversity that stand together without being disconnected.
When creating a strange climate which is full of beauty and disturbing images a crevasse appears in the analysis of human nature and how it has been melded along with the preset canons by individuals.” Synesthesia Garden
