Paintings by Alec Huxley

Paintings of figures dressed in business attire wearing space helmets that alludes to some sort of narrative, while also combining the architecture of San Francisco with fantasy and film noir. That is Alec Huxley

It all began when I bought a Soviet space helmet on eBay. I was playing around with a bunch of space-themed work for my first show at D-Structure and painted two pieces in that style. Something in the cinematic and graphic look just clicked with me, so I started to explore it more.

Slava Fokk

I am not the only one to think about Modigliani while browsing Slava's portfolio but this is just a small reminder that first there was a big drama and now here is just a good set of artworks inspired by old masters. Originally from Southern Russia, Slava Fokk is Moscow based acclaimed artist who is saving traditions of classic painting in contemporary art.

Paolo Troilo

Instead of using paintbrushes, Italian artist Paolo Troilo dips his fingers into jars of black and white paint, and then smudges and splashes it onto large canvases. Each hand stroke is expressive and filtered into his subject matter of nude men yelling and fighting. via

Cesar Santos Legendary Art Remix

What if Picasso and Rembrandt had met to have cocktails in 1953? You can imagine the talks they would have had: electric, inspired, and maybe even heated. The work that could have spawned from such a conversation might have looked a bit like that of Cesar Santos. His paintings seemingly bring the works of masters – from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century to Modernism – together, juxtaposing their styles one on top of the other. He call the series (and it is) Syncretism
