- Full Description
The catalog to the exhibition at Spoke Art’s San Francisco and New York City galleries, this takes the viewer on a journey through alternate worlds with contemporary, cutting-edge fantasy and surreal illustrators. Hyper-realism and details to phantasmagoric scenes. 40 artists from around the world include: Alex Pardee, Andy Kehoe, Audrey Kawasaki, Esao Andrews, Fulvio Di Piazza, Greg “CRAOLA” Simkins, Heiko Muller, Ken Garduno, Meghan Howland, Meredith Marsone, Scott Musgrove, Skinner, Tran Nguyen and Wendy Ortiz. Minor nudity.
Each artist offers several works over several pages, plus a gallery section features pictures of selected artists in their studios or with their artworks, which is quite different and revealing.
Described by the curator as an art movement, flowing from “the artist’s specific and unique vision, a psychological or even mystical manifestation brought into reality by an artist’s personal aesthetic…” and inspired by the likes of Rococo and Renaissance masters, painters James McNeill Whistler, Georges Seurat, writers like Edgar Allan Poe and contemporary surrealism.
A handsome, oversized hardcover in jacket with gold-embossed cover.
