A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten: Art that’s contemplative.

Contemplation is the root of awareness and creativity. Young artists on Stew have a special flair for describing silence, beauty and the unfathomable, they create riveting conversations between the ideal and the everyday and how we can close the gap between the two. Their work reminds us to give priority to silence, to sit on a rock by the stream, to unite fragments of thought, to contemplate where we’ve been and what lies beyond us. Busyness is the nemesis of good thinking. Contemplative art helps us slow down and restore so that we may find perspective and make progress for the future.

Observe and contemplate on the hidden things of life.

Art is a small retreat to help us face a new week with renewed determination.

Turn up the dial on happy and crazy: Alba Blázquez from Madrid

Imagination is the highest form of research! Alba Blázquez is a young artist, illustrator with a potent and magnetic imagination. Her playful imagery is rooted in satire and social comedy, sounding off the turmoils of city life: the humor, bewilderment and sometimes ridiculousness of urban lifestyles. Real life contains its inevitable lousy bits, but the only way through the heartaches, tribulations and loneliness is to endure it with an upbeat tone (and pizza). Her work is invigorating, high-powered and infectiously happy! We love the constant galactic imagery, it brings to our attention that no matter how dark, the galaxy outshines our problems on Earth.

Alba started her career as a photographer but quickly discovered that illustration is a quicker and surefire way of documenting the curious and bustling happenings in her mind.

What a fantastic, wild and curious imagination! The world belongs to the energetic. Turn the dial up on happy and crazy!
