Streets: Andreas Englund for Wall\Therapy (Rochester) http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/07/streets-andreas-englund-for-walltherapy-rochester/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/07/streets-andreas-englund-for-walltherapy-rochester/#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 05:55:08 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=281113 11760285_672264246243224_8621909835784233973_n

Back in 2011, we did Art Focus feature on Andreas Englund, introducing our readers to his imagery of the everyday life of superheroes and the comedy that ensues when dealing with common situations that happen to us mortals. Fast forward five years and we can see that he just completed a mural for the Wall\Therapy event in Rochester, New York, only his second public wall painted ever. Transferring his character to the large scale, the Swedish artist handles the dimensionality of the piece perfectly. Give this man more walls! Photo credit: Jason Wilder, Tomas Flint, and the artist. Discuss Andreas Englund here.]]>

Tran Nguyen, whose work we last enjoyed in person up in Seattle (covered), recently worked on a cover for Smithsonian Magazine. The current issue, which we took a snap of at our local Barnes & Noble, features the artist's illustration for the story of the fall and rise and fall of Pompeii, referencing the fact of how the archeological treasures are falling into a state of scandalous decline. Discuss Tran Nguyen here.]]>

A couple weekends ago, Along Infinite River opened at the Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, a testament to the hard work and imagination of Yis Goodwin. Otherwise known as Nosego, especially for his work on the streets, the Philadelphia-base artist unveiled a collection of new vibrant paintings that put his surreal hybrids of different creatures and landscapes on display. Along with these works, he also painted a wall mural for his fans to enjoy. Take a look at more photos below... Photo credit: Birdman Photos. Discuss Nosego here.]]>

Each artist is a master of setting a scene with mood and atmosphere as well as rendering their artistic vision in a distinctive way. Take a look at the amazing effort from Horkey on the typography and showcard here as they each prep for their part in the exhibition.]]>
