Graceful Flowery Collages by Maja Egli

Collage artist Maja Egli creates surreal portraits by manipulating various posrtraits and plants to work together as complex unities. Most of her figures are incomplete, lacking some fullness of form; the few full figures that we do get are faceless. There is a dark beauty to Egli’s work, as she often merges both black-and-white and color images in her collages. Take a look!

Anna Dittmann’s Ethereal Portraits

Anna Dittmann is a 21-year-old digital illustrator from San Francisco with a passion for enigmatic portraiture. Her paintings are a sight to behold: ethereal portraits inspired by nature that look like they’re watercolor or ink, but are in fact digital masterpieces. “I began taking painting more seriously when I discovered Photoshop around age 13. A lot has changed since then, but I still have that childlike excitement every time I see and create art. I have a love for nature, biology, and portraiture which are recurring themes throughout my work. Ethereal and atmospheric moods have always appealed to me because the sense of mystery they evoke, so I tend create soft pieces with a combination of graphic and realistic elements. My inspiration comes from organic natural elements, mythology and history, movement and texture, lyrics and melodies, expressions, color variations, pretty much anything which makes me want to grab my tablet and paint!”

Portraits of Cosplay Enthusiasts in their Homes by Klaus Pichler

Cosplay, short for “costume play”, is a performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Hidden behind the closed doors of our neighbors may live two different people. The person we see on the street, and the one who dons an elaborate costume to live an alternative life behind closed doors. Photographer Klaus Pichler takes us on a journey of people and their costumes with a look at both the real and the fantasy. The amazing costumes are made even more incredible by Pichler’s careful framing of the pictures in home settings, bringing us a vision of both the costumed persona and the reality lives of his subjects. The combination of fascinating costumes and simple settings create stories more enticing than an in character shot. Have fun!
