Fred Ingrams is an artist who after working for many years in London as a painter, graphic designer & art director moved to Norfolk in the late 90s, where he recently became obsessed with painting an area known as The Fens – a marshy, flat region in the east of England. all descriptions of the area sound boring and […]

Fly Art

Fly Art

i use tumblr to keep up with a bunch of great art blogs, and this is how i discovered Fly Art. “a homage to the finer things in life: Art and Hip Hop.” you should go and trawl through the pieces, because the new names of the artworks are almost as great as the quotes themselves.

Alexia Vogel

Alexia Vogel

i love these oil paintings by local artist Alexia Vogel. Alexia Vogel is a recent Michaelis School of Fine Art graduate. She considers all of her paintings landscapes, even the most abstract ones. She works from old family photographs of landscapes which she feels are imbued with a romantic sentimentality. Her work is very personal, as she considers it the affect of […]

Nail Art History

5-1

Nail Art + Art History = Nail Art History. the woman behind the nails – and attached to the nails – is Susi Kenna, an art lover (who actually works for an Art PR firm) who interprets the work of contemporary artists into 10 nail designs and then painstakingly creates these tiny masterpieces with the help of masterful […]

Kim McCarty

Kim McCarty

i love the watercolours of artist Kim McCarty. Working rapidly, at times using only a single color and at others a haunting, bruise-inspired palette of acid yellows, greens, and browns, McCarty’s portraits evoke the sense of uncertainty, ambivalence, anxiety, and loss with which we view today’s generation.

Isca Greenfield-Sanders

Isca Greenfield-Sanders

Isca Greenfield-Sanders encapsulates summer and nostalgia in her paintings. she finds, scans, edits, and prints vintage photographs, alters them with watercolour and pencil, then mounts details from the images onto tiles before, finally, painting over them in oils. Her primary interest is the figured landscape and its relationship to memory—how universally recognizable places (beaches, family picnics, […]

Conrad Jon Godly

Conrad Jon Godly

it amazes me what some people can do with paint. the feeling of rock and cold and mist and altitude that these pieces by Swiss artist Conrad Jon Godly convey is just unbelievable. Godly originally studied as a painter at the Basel School of Art in the 80s, and then was a professional photographer for almost 2 decades […]
