Every Tuesday, Josh from Creep Machine takes us some place dark, yet colorful, haunting, yet whimsical in a post about the Best Art Prints on the Web. Thanks, Josh. -ed
Amy Sol "Leaving Downey Cloud Island"
A self taught artist in Las Vegas, Amy Sol has a very unique, dreamy style. She has worked very hard at making a palette of colors that are muted and help make her work consistent, this along with the wood grain she incorporates into her works. This piece specifically looks very vibrant. She has been shown is such galleries as: Copro Nason, Thinkspace, Gallery 1988 and Lineage. Her prints sell out very quickly, and this one will be no different. This print is a giclee on board, hand varnished and framed. The piece is limited to 50.
Blaine Fontana "Gardener Surinam"
An graduate of Otis College of Art and Design, Blaine Fontana has done work for Ocean Pacific, LRG, Volcom, Kid Robot, Nike and many others. His work is very colorful, and filled with highly stylized figures that he has labeled "templings", a blend of the words temple and beings. This piece is limited to 500. I love the figures that he creates, and what looks like two different types of clouds in the background.
Naoto Hattori "Gathering"
A very accomplished artists with a huge amount of shows under his belt, Naoto Hattori has some seriously wicked work. With the ability to do photo realistic paintings, Naoto decided that he wasn't satisfied with just making photo realistic paintings, he wanted to make them distorted and surreal. His style is amazing, and his prints are the kind that will spark a conversation with just one glance. This piece is limited to 100.
Julie West "Splendid"
With a BFA in Illustration Julie West has done work for PC Magazine, Taco Bell, Mixmag, and host of others. She works in both traditional media, as well as digitally. Her work is filled with great patterns and colors, each piece being an observation of people, and "how we choose to define ourselves" as she states. This piece is a 7 color, limited edition screen print. It's signed and numbered.
Katy Horan "Factory"
A graduate of R.I.S.D, Katy Horan currently lives and works in Brooklyn. Her work is influenced by fantasy and her love of all things "folky" as she puts it. I think she has a great style, very colorful, each piece has a lot to look at. She uses mixed media, so this piece has a lot of cool little additions to it, lined paper, wood, ink, etc. This print is sold directly through her etsy shop, so you're getting it from her. There are only 10 of these prints left.
