Surreal Universe Illustration Of  Daehyun Kim’s life

Artist Daehyun Kim started to create his evocative, mystical Moonassi world out of ink while studying oriental painting in Seoul, South Korea, and has continued to grow it ever since. “The series is my life-time project,” the artist explains on his website. “

There is no specific background story or a theory about the drawing. Each drawing is created based on my daily thoughts and feelings. I draw to meditate on myself and others, and to be able to see the whole story of the series in the end.”

Daehyun operates out of a world in which the oceans are both shallow and bottomless, light is dark and dark is light, the moon acts as a torch, an eye and a character’s inner being are one and there’s nothing to do but reflect on your own existence all day, and it’s completely spell-binding.

Romantic Portraits Of Women In The Golden Fields By Brad Reuben Kunkle

 Website  |  Facebook  |  Instagram

Brad Kunkle, a Brooklyn-based artist, paints gorgeous women with oil, and adorned them with sparkling gold and silver leaf. Each portrait is beautifully crafted — a coalescence of natural world, feminine beauty and the lofty allure of precious metals. But despite of this glamorous scenery, the paintings portray women in melancholic facial expression, seemingly bereft of joy and happiness in life. Nevertheless, the artwork — the painting and leafing of gold and silver — is skillfully and artistically done.

His minimal palette is inspired by the grisailles of early European masters and the haunting quality of antique photographs and daguerreotypes. The surfaces of these oil paintings are embellished with genuine gold and silver leaf. These precious metals are used as symbolic elements as well as visual instruments to interact with viewer’s movements and environment. As a decorative painter in his mid twenties, he leafed entire walls in copper.  Beguiled by the shifting, life-like nature of the surfaces, Brad began to incorporate gilding in his work, which provided the surreal quality he had been looking for to convey his moody, romantic ideas of human nature and ritual.

These paintings are embellished with genuine gold and silver leaf, which reflects light in a room differently than paint. Therefore, they can appear contrastive and unique when the point of view or source of light has changed. ~ Brad Kunkle


Disturbing & Uncensored Artworks That Reflect Modern Society *shocking content*

 These images are aimed at an informed public!

At first glance, the colourful illustrations of Spanish artist Gunsmithcat (aka Luis Quiles) look innocent enough, until you look a little closer. His work is a unique combination of real-life events and current affairs blended with numerous pop culture references from the world of film, gaming, TV and technology.

Luis Quiles is a Spanish illustrator with extraordinary talent. His colorful, comic pencil stroke is full of cynicism and sarcasm. This opposition between the drawings in themselves and the messages they see allows to shock and to challenge all those who admire them, confronting them violently through the Man and his society.

Between violence, perversion, religion, consumption, politics, sexism, poverty, homophobia, Third World, famine, and many other themes, nothing escapes the sharp eye and the unequivocal judgment of this artist engaged and horribly talented.

His confronting illustrations focus on range of complex and controversial issues including homophobia, sexism, censorship, corporate greed and even child violence. It often makes for unsettling viewing, knowing just how close to the truth he is at times.

Whilst others might have use their artistic talent purely for commercial gain or played it safe, Gunsmithcat opted and aspired for more. His work is a reminder of the darker side of modern society, a raw and unflinching look at the devious nature of the human psyche.

Through his art, Quiles sums up a wide range of controversial issues ranging from the free sale of drug addiction, corruption, violence, child abuse, and most relevant of all, our obsession of social media culture.

There is something brutal, captivating, and revealing that is expressed through every illustration, perhaps in part because of the apparent truth that exists in the messages. Many of them are hard to look at, but they all look like an exact representation of the riddles that plague our world today.

Some Explanations:

The forcing of cheap food to a docile and lethargic audience.

Given the rising cost of living, which continues to increase at an alarming rate, with an economy pushing more and more people to a lower socio-economic level, many families and students are gorging themselves essentially on good food. market because it’s their only option. Does the design of our systems take into account nutrition that stimulates our optimal cognitive and energy capabilities?

A lack of nutritious food makes a nation lethargic and docile.


The censorship of the freedom of thought and the consequences that follow when you speak.

It is interesting to see how the laws, regulations and programs that exist around fear limit our choices and thoughts in countries that declare to be « free ». One can be severely penalized for daring to challenge the belief systems of his government. There is something curious about this censorship.

The hand of religion to poverty.

It is no secret that the predominant religious institutions are among the richest organizations in our present world. Yet even among all currencies and gold, the stakes are high, with their pretense of being indispensable to the salvation of the world, these institutions have failed to solve the pandemic of poverty around the world. Ironically, many developing countries are wrapped up in the ideological atmosphere of organized religion, following diligent teachings without paralleling the fact that these institutions have the means to help.

How is female sexuality used to deflect hormone-focused attention from the male population?

Multinationals do not make differences

It’s rampant in all media forms today. The hyper-sexualized image of women, used to stimulate a population led by men’s testosterone. Not only is it widespread in the media, but it is also witnessed in various aspects of modern day culture. For example, many restaurants or cafes require girls to wear skirts, heels, or even boots, to appeal to a specific audience. Female celebrities of pop are also generally sexually exploited in the mainstream media. Another example of the dominant male influences that is at the top of the scale.

« Generation notifications »; The madness of social media on the population.

Social networks have undoubtedly changed the way we connect on the internet, but it is difficult to say now if these conditions have a positive or harmful effect, this subject is much debate. Today we see a high percentage of young people and adults who are literally dependent on their phones, iPads, or laptops. It’s almost starting to move towards a physical and technological fusion with man, where the line between the reality of social networks and everyday reality is continually disappearing. There are several platforms available nowadays, many of which are a waste of time, by scrolling endless news. How will this relationship with social media evolve over the next few years? Case to follow …

Innocent victims of useless wars..

How can we continue to hurt innocent civilians? That’s incomprehensible. Children who grow up around the devastation of war are often the subject of by-products of weapons of war, ie, firearms and radiation lead to amputation. Whether we support the « war on terror » or not, we can not support the absurdity of the killers of innocent children in the name of defending their own country.

The push to the extreme that money holds over the people.

With the way the system is being put in place, it’s almost as if people are intentionally opposing each other as a giant game on the survival of the fittest. As these famous lines indicate, « the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Virtually all sectors today are fueled by financial gain. Some are willing to take great means to achieve their ends in the name of money.

Sadly, we see financial interests literally destroying the planet, destroying ecosystems and wildlife at an unsustainable pace. How did a system of manufactured values ​​come to be a possible downfall of the whole planet? Will humanity wake up from its own madness before it’s too late?

How professional athletes are used as products.

All is said.

How pharmaceuticals turn a population into zombies, killing us slowly.

‘The Times’ analysis of death statistics in 2009 found: • For the first time in the United States, more people were killed by drugs than by motor vehicle accidents. • 37,485 people died because of medication, a rate fueled by overdoses of prescriptions for pain and anxiety, compared to 36,284 people in car accidents • Drug-related deaths doubled among teens and youth adults between 2000 and 2008, and tripled among people aged 50 to 69 years. These facts are based off of the legal statistics of prescription drugs.

It is estimated that more than 450,000 adverse events are drug related each year. The costs of adverse drug effects are estimated at billions of euros each year – more than the total cost of cardiovascular or diabetic care. Based on records from 1976 to 2006, researchers found 62 million death certificates related to prescription drugs in the United States, nearly a quarter of the millions of these deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital because of a medical error.

Storytelling Animals Portraits by Josie Morway






















b6cfffbb51b1572d9739e3ab764b0c62Storytelling Animals Portraits by Josie Morway

Josie Morway is an artist living and working in Boston, Massachusetts. For her enchanting oil paintings Josie combines her background in graphic design and illustration with her passion for telling stories. Josie on her process:

“I draw inspiration from the bits of word and phrase that bombard us daily in the form of faded ad murals, snippets of overheard conversation, the near-illegible promises of old signage. Stories defined as much by the info they lack as by what they present. Using animals as the main characters in my narratives, I’m able to explore gestures, postures and expressions that are both familiar, universal and still sometimes as ambiguous as those partial verbal messages. For the last year or so I have been working steadily on a project I’ve titled ‘Untame vs. The Domesticati’: a series of paintings that examine the themes of domestication and wildness through symbols relevant to both wildlife and human society.”

Antispecies illustrations reversing the balance of power between the human and the animal. 

Pretty scary thought right? Well that’s the theme of this shocking series of illustrations that are designed to get you to think differently about the way that humans treat animals.
Antispecies illustrations showing banal scenes of life, but with one detail: the balance of power between Man and animal is reversed. Humans become oppressed, nonhuman animals oppressors. From then on, this banality turns into a horror of the cruelty of the scene of an individual who wants one thing: to live and dispose of his body.

These works appeal to our empathy, one of the keys to question the legitimacy of speciesism. Empathy is different from pity. It requires putting oneself in the other person’s shoes to better understand and perceive their emotions and feelings. In the case of non-human animals, empathy results in a shift from executioner to victim (without necessarily being the executioner, but as an individual belonging to the self-proclaimed species). dominant). From hunter to hunted. From eater to eaten. From entertainment to entertainment object. From decorator to decorative object.

These Japanese Woodblock Prints of Famous World Landmarks Are Sumptuous


 These Japanese Woodblock Prints of Famous World Landmarks Are Sumptuous
at the Ronin Gallery website
Hiroshi Yoshida was a traditionalist who threw out the rule book; a romantic with a keen eye for the world as it is, as adept at portraying an idyllic mountain shrine in Japan as he was at capturing the dusty quality of the light at a busy market in Morocco. The mixture of modern and classic Japanese aesthetics in his work made him popular first with collectors in the United States and Europe, and only later in Japan. His work sits at a crossroads between the East and the West, the old and the new, the traditional and the revolutionary. Perhaps these complexities, combined with the sheer beauty of his images, are why his work continues to fascinate and inspire almost a century later.

Realistic Portraits by Melissa Cooke


Realistic Portraits by Melissa Cooke

“Specializing in graphite on paper, her work investigates the relationship between photography, performance and drawing in portraiture. Melissa Cooke ‘s drawings are made by dusting thin layers of graphite onto paper with a dry brush. The softness of the graphite provides a smooth surface that can be augmented by erasing in details and textures. No pencils are used in the work, allowing the surface to glow without the shine of heavy pencil marks. Illusion dissolves into brush work and the honesty of the material.”
