While browsing an art blog today I came across a mention (not large enough, imo) of Valeria Myrusso, a Ukrainian grunge illustration artist.  She works with paint and photo manipulation, among other things, to create the pieces below.  I can’t find information on her aside from what’s on her deviantArt profile so I suppose her work will have to speak for it self.  These are my favorites:

Poppies Field

Trip Flamenco

Jessica Joslin is a Boston-born and Chicago-based brilliant visual artist who works with animal bones, leather, metal bits and other found objects to create delicate looking skeletal structures of creatures real and imagined.  Her work, I suppose, could be categorized as “steam punk”-ish but there’s an elegance to it that makes me reluctant to label it after an industrial revolution inspired artistic style.  I think these pieces belong in a museum.  (And in my house, if only I could afford one)

After watching an inspiring TED talk by the artist Raghava KK, I looked at his website and loved the uniqueness of what I saw.

I love seeing the progression of his work on his website.  His style often changes, and it’s nice to see that it all works so well for him.

San Francisco is covered in murals.  They’re everywhere and they’re fantastic to look at once you actually start paying attention. 

Some of them are totally brilliant works of art.  Mona Caron is the culprit behind a lot of the drop-your-jaw-roll-your-tounge-out-like-a-red-carpet ones.  Here are some:

Rainforest & City

Windows into the Tenderloin

Mel Kadel is an LA based artist. Her art involves ink, old paper collages, coffee stains and stories to tell.

While browsing a small art gallery in some tucked away corner of Prague last summer, I stumbled across the etchings of Oleksiy Fedorenko, a Ukrainian born artist about whom I know absolutely nothing, to be perfectly honest.  I just know that I fell completely in love with his work and could not leave the gallery without buying one of his etchings.  This is the one I bought (Big Fish Little Fish):
