Edward Hopper's Nighthawk & Alt versions

One of my favourite paintings of all time is Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, just love the mystery, the story you can make in your head about who these people are, what is their relationship with each other

One of the other things I love about this painting is the numerous alternative versions & below are a section of how this piece of culture has become pop culture

Jason Freeny - Artist

Only discovered Jason Freeny, an artist/designer fairly recently (either someone sent me the link to his Lego anatomy figure, or I found it by luck) and discovered what amazing stuff he has done. I am such a big toy geek, so seeing how he specialise in designer toys made me check out his stuff. He also specialise in sculpture and computer generated imagery.

Jason created his first fictional anatomy illustration in 2000 with his depiction of the mythological "Incubus". His first anatomical digital illustration in 2007with "Pneumatic Anatomica" balloon animal anatomy and his first anatomical sculpt in 2010 with an anatomical Dunny. 

Armed with a youthful, overactive imagination, Jason creates smart, intricate works that tickle the deviant intellect through a mix of hard graphics, detailed anatomy, pop iconography and wit.

Jason went full time as a working artist in 2010 and can now be found hunched over his work table developing works of candy colored madness. He set up Moist Production Studio

More great work by Jason

 

Couple of places to buy Jason's work from in the US (will ship to the UK).

Gin Art @ Brush Brighton

Thursday night was the PV of the new exhibition at Brush Brighton, an art gallery / hairdressers. 

My first visit there, and was impressed with their The Brighton Gin Art Prize exhibition, where Brush have joined up with Brighton Gin

People were invited to take a empty Brighton Gin bottle and customise it in any way they want. It was really interesting to see so all the different styles and takes on this. Wish I know about this beforehand, as it would have been cool to have a go.... but I do recommend checking out the exhibition. 

See photos below, also they have a cool selection of cards & prints, so perfect way of support the #justacard campaign.

And I don't if this dog belongs to the owners or one of the visitors, but so cute!!!
