artist: Will Ashford

Will Ashford, Recycled Words. This is what he writes about his work:
«Browsing through garage sales, street markets and used bookstores I search for interesting, preferably discarded, old books. When I find a good candidate I explore every page. Like an archeologist I hunt for the words that speak to me with new meaning. Intuitively, one word at a time, they turn into a kind of haiku or philosophical poetry that I can call my own.»
>>


And also really like that part:
«Art is often described as „timeless“ at the same time as it is considered definitive to a particular era. This art, however presents a more compelling temporal „can of worms“ in that: it brings the past (the text and the pages themselves) into the present where it becomes not just a medium but a collaborator in the creation of something new with hardly any indication of the period in which it was created using themes, imagery, and materials that can be presumed to remain relevant long into the future.»

Cool streetartist, Os Gemeos. Using a lot of patterns in his work, which makes his style unique and easily recognizable. I like his work a lot.

artist: KILLPIXIE

I have recently discovered Kill Pixie — streetartist from Australia, and was immediately charmed by ball-head characters, palettes, textures and absolute freedom and fun of his works. Here is a cool Kill Pixie interview.

Recently I got an old Chinese comic book from my friend, and was really inspired by it’s main character, Sun Wukong (the Monkey King):

He is a hero of Journey to the West, a classical epic novel, published in the 1590’s
