russian icons

AP students - here are some stylistic examples for our MODERN ICON project. remember, your icon can be any person that you consider iconic - family member, famous person, religious figure, or anyone else you know or consider iconic to you. they should have something that represents them in the painting.

friday wisdom.

artist of the week :: erik otto

erik otto is another artist i stumbled upon while reading JUXTAPOZ... usually i find the best artists in the ads for shows, rather than in their feature articles... and he is another example of this.
i was immediately drawn in because of the wild textural surfaces mixed with the really smooth forground objects. its the perfect combination of pop art and street art - the clean and crisp right next to the grit.
