Blaine Fontana is one of those artists who just makes me want to go paint something immediately.  His work, which he describes as ‘urban-contemporary’ is full of organic forms and themes from nature, and many of his paintings depict beings called Templings – neither male nor female, neither happy nor sad – who they are and what they mean is open to interpretation.  He draws  inspiration from his childhood backdrop of acres of Seattle forest, and his roots as a grafitti artist.

Matthew Rogers has posted 20 Amazing Examples Of Art From Obsolete Technology over at WebUrbanist…. I knew if the 80’s kid in me held out for long enough cassette tapes would make a comeback (one way or another :P)

Felice Varini  ‘paints on architectural and urban spaces, such as buildings, walls and streets. The paintings are characterized by one vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete painting (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), while from other view points the viewer will see ‘broken’ fragmented shapes. Felice argues that the work exists as a whole – with its complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.’  (Check out his Wikipedia page here.)

His home page is in French, but is actually quite easy to navigate even if you don’t speak French.

His work is awesome on first sight, but you really don’t appreciate the scale of it until you see it from the other vantage points…
