Viner studio | Sunday Morning Art

Oooohhh… Hello Ladies!

designjoyblog_viner studio_AvenueRx(medres)Brooklyn based painter Jonathan Viner‘s works primarily with oils to create these beauties. Painted with perfect skill, these ladies are young, they are beautiful and they are cool. What more could you want to look at really?

But ladies, don’t worry. Viner has got something for everyone! Though not as lush and glamorous as his female muses, his man do have a quiet coolness about them that we could even call sexy… I mean, who doesn’t like a guy with a kitty or, on the more surreal side, a hipster standing on a sofa with a yellow painting? Excellent!

Limited edition prints are available on the artist’s online shop.

Happy Sunday!

Katerina Plotnikova | Sunday Morning Art

I wanted to write a special art post today to celebrate mother’s day with something of spectacular beauty. So I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share the work of Russian fine art photographer Katerina Plotnikova.

DesignJoyBlog katerina Plotnikova 9

While this young photographer may modestly describe her own work as  ‘another tale about wonderland’, I for one believe these are by far some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. These wonderful dreamlike images portray beautiful heroines and wild animals, gently living in a world between reality and an ethereal fairytale.

Katerina Plotnikova’s work is available for sale at 500 px where you can chose from a large number of her mesmerizing pictures, one more stunning than the other.

Happy Sunday!

Slim Aarons Collection by Surface View

I get so excited when I see good art made popular that it’s actually quite funny!

You can chose from various collections, presenting a wide range of carefully curated images in 5 categories: Galleries & Museums, Photography, Classic Graphic Arts, Designers & Collaborators and, my personal favorite, Vintage Archives.

Kelly Puissegur | Sunday Morning Art

Oh how much I love love LOVE the light-hearted, all around hilarious, artwork by Kelly Puissegur!!!

Designjoyblog_KellyPuissegur07

Inspired by day-to-day random oddities, the work by this LA based artist is an impressive collection of skillfully made humorous paintings, illustrations and collages. With blasé tigers, strange creatures wearing animal masks, animals doing the robot-dance or titty-twisting, her work is an explosion of alluring creative madness and witty punchlines.

Kelly Puissegur’s work is so enjoyable that I got sidetracked completely and now ended up publishing this hours late!!! Oops…

You can see more of Kelly’s fantastic work on her website Retro Whale. And to brighten up your everyday as well, you can buy prints for your walls at the artist’s Etsy Shop, and original artwork are also available at Saatchi Online.

Happy Sunday!!

Everything is going to be ok: The work of Ashlie Chavez

I just recently stumbled upon this amazing collage of a dinosaur eating children while happy 1950’s families and children went about their business. After a little research and I was pleasantly surprised to find the poetic work of not only one amazing artist, but two. LA based photographers Ashlie and Amber Chavez are two twin sisters who work strictly as a team to produce incredibly personal work, with their “abnormally close relationship as twins” as centerpiece.

Now the best news is that Ashlie has an online shop Art For Your Walls where she sells high quality reproductions of her collage work and photographs. Definitely worth checking out!
