Oil Paintings of Retro Vehicles by Kevin Cyr

Kevin Cyr was born in 1976 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada. He grew up in Madawaska, Maine and received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Cyr is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He commemorates commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust, working vehicles, and well-traveled recreational vehicles.

At a fist glance I thought these were just illustrations created with Adobe Illustrator, but boy was I wrong. The most mind-blowing part about Kevin’s drawings, is that they’re all oil paintings. His attention to detail fooled me and made me appreciate his beautiful work even more.

Kevin has been featured in numerous publications such as Juxtapoz, The New York Times, Classic Driver, Walls & Frames, Dandyhorse Magazine, and much more. Currently he is on the move showcasing his work at art exhibitions. The latest one is called; In Praise of Rust. It is running May 19—June 16, 2012 at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. So if you are in NYC be sure to check it out!

“In a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. I have always been interested in painting vehicles and scenes that have defined the evolution of the American landscape.” – Kevin Cyr

20 Excellent Abstract Illustrations by Russ Mills

blog

You might have already heard of Russ Mills. If not, let us tell you who this incredible artist is. Between urban fine art and contemporary graphics, Russ creates collisions of real and digital media with a firm foundation in drawing. He mainly focuses on the human form, particularly the face, interweaving elements from the animal kingdom often reflecting the absurdity of human nature.

Graduating from Leeds Met University in 1995, after completing a BA in Graphic Art and Design, Mills started finding gainful employment in various non-creative institutions. Starting with the basics, he began working with pen, pencil and a computer. Russ has spent almost 20 years crafting his skills, absorbing influences from every facet of visual culture and archiving found objects and ephemera to substantiate his work.

He has worked as a freelance illustrator with numerous clients in publishing and entertainment, more recently pursuing the more traditional gallery/exhibition path with solo shows in London and Bristol and group exhibits in the U.S. Numerous sell out print releases and coverage worldwide.

Today we present to you some of his greatest creations. Enjoy!

Cleverly Hilarious WTF Posters By Estudio Minga

Estudio Minga is a creative studio based in Argentina. They started a project called WTF and with gaining popularity they had to come up with WTF2 as well.  What makes this achievement even better, is that it was started just for fun. These posters are very minimal, and yet cleverly executed with funny imaginations. You can also buy these posters from their online shop for $19 each.

WTF is an expression that somehow manages to be one of the most trending topic on Twitter and in our lives as well. Most people use a question mark afterwards to get the point through. Rather than using the same term for the other ‘w’s, who, when, where, and why, it makes more sense to actually state the word and follow it with ‘tf.’ We hope you will enjoy the following illustrations and spread the word!
