Book About New Art


London Miles Gallery Curator and Author Tina Ziegler has penned a new book covering an array of new and up-and-coming artists around the globe.

"... Showcasing a contemporary view of international art featured in galleries and media across the globe. This striking collection of surrealism, pop art, illustration, collage, graphic design and mixed media represents many of today's most boundary-pushing artists. Aspects of this collection are dark, at times macabre, but these images are complemented by arrestingly playful pieces, and accompanied by first-person texts that shed light on how and why these individuals make their art."

Artists include PopDrawer faves Brandi Milne, Carlos Ramons, Edwin Ushiro, Elizabeth Mcgrath, Joshua Petker, Nathan Ota, Scott Belcastro, Scott Campbell, Tessar Lo, Tiffany Liu, Yoskay Yamamoto, and many many others.

Artist Statement:
Human distress and weariness of the soul are prevalent illnesses we’ve all encountered in our existence. It is ubiquitous to say that life is hard and it’s even harder to relieve ourselves of this chronic disquiet. It is my hope that the milieus portrayed in ‘Nurturing the Uneased Soul’ pay homage to those who are facing everyday-life difficulties – you, your family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, or even strangers. 

The visual metaphors that are depicted in my paintings capture our emotional turmoil. They embody someone that we can contemplate with, something that reorganizes our cluttered mind. It’s somewhere that nurses the unattended thoughts we’ve tucked away, deep inside our psyche. My imageries serve as a reservoir for the mind to collect itself, replenish itself, and resolve itself from its emotive tension. My hopes are that once the viewer has plunged into my oeuvre, they are able to emerge from the pilgrimage with a new, untarnished mindset. With whatever existent hardship you may be enduring, I deeply hope it can help nurture your exasperated soul.

"‘Everybody, all the time’ delves deeper than ever before into the American’s mischievous and curious imagination to reveal the artist at his idiosyncratic and playful best. Through a multitude of storyboards and illustrated narratives, Campbell renders his escapist daydreams in the form of often-humorous and light-hearted scenarios featuring intriguing and otherworldly creatures."

Scott C. will also host a Comic Art and Illustration workshop on Saturday 6th March 2010, at 12:30pm and 4:00pm.

Mechanical Brides of the Uncanny by Edward Bateman

5355559A-C1C5-476A-A2A2-D3AFFC9F3C05.jpg 78F7182F-C01E-4324-A39A-3E98BB9F09D0.jpg

Mechanical Brides of the Uncanny by Edward Bateman

"In the last half of the nineteenth century, cartes de visite were widely traded and collected, with subjects ranging from portraits of everyday people to those of luminaries. Bateman uses this history to question the idea that all photographs are bound to a particular moment in time. Combining 19th century imagery with fabricated automatons, he creates images of the past with an iconography that is usually used to depict the future."

(Thanks, Peyton!)

Damon Soule at Thinkspace


"Materializing space into a simple geometry, Damon Soule works in the fissure between pop surrealism, neo cubism and fractalism. Using geometrical elements he creates the illusion of the third dimension, and his shapes are allowed to slide, flip, and rotate, all meeting at the same corners. He uses proportions, patterns, and geometry, proving proficiency in spatial understanding and advanced mathematics."

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb. 12th   7-11PM
4210 Santa Monica Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90029
