Pow Martinez known for his sound and sculptural installation works has in the last few years taken his eclectic, flamboyant and humorous viewpoints on Pinoy pop-culture into the realm of painting. Pow’s paintings stand strong and inventive as they compete and make fun of the current market driven resurrection in photo-realism painting in the Philippine art scene. Pow’s paintings are thick with paint and humor. Scenes of the apocalypse the inquisition and demonic local icons sprawl across his canvases with harsh ease. Pow has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Manila, Malaysia and Japan. 2010 solo exhibition Hyper blast abomination at Mag:net Gallery, Manila.

Matt Wisniewski uses images discovered via Tumblr and other social media outlets to create these surreal digital collages, blending fashion and beauty with the natural world. It's interesting how now with the internet, artist's and designers are appropriating images found through digital media more then ever. In the coming years I wonder if this will create bigger issues with what artist's can use and not use. It's just the beginning of what's to come...whatever it is it is very pleasing to the eye indeed.

This look, simplistic in cut, yet exquisite in silver-embroidered detail, radiates the ethereal beauty of an angel as depicted in traditional Catholic imagery. The model's head is bound with bandages, a move which at once references McQueen's legendary Spring/Summer 2001 Asylum collection whilst also nodding towards the head coverings donned by modest women in Northern European medieval and Renaissance portraiture, such as Johannes Vermeer's 1665 masterpiece, Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Most people think an artist tries to be original, but originality is the last thing that develops in the artist.
