Artist of the month – Chiang Lup Hong

Psychedelic and absorbing. The excruciatingly beautifully detailed illustrations from Malaysian artist Chiang Lup Hong. Ever seen those mind boggling optical illusions, where supposedly there's meant to be a picture within a picture, and you can never figure them out? Well, if you invest your time studying Hong's illustrations, trust me, you won't be disappointed or disillusioned. Okay, granted,…

There is also a deep consideration of the minimal and naturalistic landscapes she creates, that are not only filled with…

Artist of the Month: GARY COLCLOUGH

Simplicity at its best! Colcloughs work in content reflects the detail of studying nature, but also the natural geommetry and shapes hidden within it.
