Mercy Banner and Coffin by Christopher Perrin Tattoo Canvas Art Print
Gazing at a piece of art can sometimes take you straight from the gallery into the frame. The postcard-like etchings of Evan Hecox are just those types of pieces, as many of his series' evolved from his travels to places like Tokyo, Mexico and Berlin. Using 2 to 5 tones, Hecok creates dramatic reproductions of his travel photo albums that tell Hunter S. Thompson-like stories; silhouetted and obscured, yet very emotionally descriptive. The skylines, vendor cabanas and other mundane yet illustratively defining images of the culture and cities of Hecok's visits are transformed from everyday images to captivating masterpieces by his unusual styling techniques. Newspaper print and Chinese character script are used in place of traditional smudging and hatching tactics to create shading, figures without so-much more than an outline beside ones that have been articulately detailed and selectively colored objects highlighted among the chaotically-depicted, sedated urban settings. The etch-a-sketch looking silk-screened prints are produced on renewable green energy and carbon-free paper so that Hecok's artistic expressions are sure to also make environmentally sound statements. Turn your home into an art gallery of graphically alurring travel souvenirs with Evan Hecok's prints! Get a feel for Hecok's work in this slideshow!
New York artist Jesse Utt travels to various spaces to showcase a spunky and shameless collection of wall-hanging artwork -- and makes jewelry-making look like child's play. As attractive as his artwork is on canvas, it's his Zachary Pryor accessories line that's so beguiling, we'd never want to take off. His earrings and necklaces resemble a scrapbook collage of trunk collectibles that are a perfect way to add crafty edge to your style. Metal chains, color contrast and charms all lend a hand in shaping the tasteful trinkets that have found their way to the necks and wrists of art-loving A-listers like Mary-Kate Olsen and Avril Lavigne. Jesse, under the trade name Zachary Pryor (a name that covertly pays homage to his grandmother and plays off a name that he could've been donned at birth) has made wearing art -- and making a statement -- easy. While his past works feature canvas-mimicking illustrations, his most recent follow either a more industrial style that is loud and evocative, or a fierce, whimsical style with bright feathers. Catch some of the lust-worthy eye candy in this slideshow and fall in love with the originality of these essentially one-of-a-kind Zachary Pryor accessories!
