Sasha Baranovskaya makes charming, amusing and sensible images about our generation. Her work is odd, whimsical and delightfully eccentric. They’re rooted in the absurdity of daily life with incisive observations: from ailing demons roaming the neighborhood, to the proverbial corporate ladder. In Fashionists she takes a witty crack at our obsession with appearance. Pink Planet is an inter-dimensional space exploration adventure…fantastic! We’re super excited to see comics as a mature art form, booming in popularity and geared towards an intellectual, fun-loving audience.
Intergalactic travel, neon alien interiors, shifting realities and glittery cosmic raves: the weird and funny alien world of Tim Furey isn’t actually that far from contemporary life — they are familiar and alien at the same time. We think he’s made out of disco balls and mischievous smiles! We love his collage aesthetic and the late 80s early 90s influences, especially the retro arcade game and Atari references. His imagination becomes the universe. Don’t miss the funny descriptions!
Brace yourself! When hopping through interstellar space, watch out for the wormholes! Illustrator Paul Loubet is a young Frenchman living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His funny parallel universes and dinosaurs are filled with unabashed science-fiction geekiness, throwback to 1990s video games and epic bygone era comic books! They take you on a joyride through a miscellany of pop culture references, playful street art and satire of taste and culture. We love how he doesn’t take himself too seriously, as if the world is seen through the eyes of a precocious teen.
For ages, the mysterious splendor of space has enticed us from its remote heights. It’s written in our genes. Something inside us always attracts us to the night skies. The Hubble Space Telescope gives us our daily shots of awe. We’re fascinated by space because it hovers beyond our comprehension. We love it when artists’ geekiness, quirks and obsessions readily show up in their works! Emily Lau‘s paintings are equal parts cheeky and longing. She’s enamored with life on other planets. Look out for the hidden spaceships and alien references in her paintings. Check out Max Grunfeld‘s floaty illustration, a perfect example of her whimsical daydreams about the extraordinary. Don’t miss Aga Ciszewska‘s calm and beautiful crosshatching drawing of Uranus. Tim Furey and Paul Loubet have so much enthusiasm! Funny worlds where intergalactic raves, shifting realities and interstellar dangers are the condensations of their imagination.
