Kitten-Queen-Saki-Murakami

Apart from being an UIUX designer at Electronics Arts Square KK, the Tokyo-based Saki Murakami also happens to be a terrific artist who creates wonderfully quirky and surreal illustrations.

The above illustration titled “Kitten Queen” was one her artworks exhibited at the ‘Scream Queen Filmfest Tokyo’. Murakami used the bob haired silhouette-mascot of the festival as the inspiration to create the creepy-cute character. The 11.69”  x 8.26” piece was drawn using a 0.05mm oil-based ink pen, and is now on sale at $300.

You can check out more of her illustrations on her blog, as well as her galleries on Behance.

Depending on the choice of medium (graphite pencils, acrylic paints or oil paints), Dzimirsky spends 100 to 150 hours to create his masterpieces.

The artist has now released limited edition fine art prints of two of his works. Titled “Mary” and “Drawn Face VI”, the original drawings were created on paper using graphite pencils and white charcoal.

More about the prints:

Pseudoscape---A-Large-Scale-Art-Installation-by-Crystal-Wagner-02

Artist Crystal Wagner’s describes her latest art installation as a conduit or space between the artificial environment created by our everyday experiences with man-made materials and technology, and the exotic landscapes on the surface of planet earth.Wagner’s gorgeous piece, currently on display at the Makery Gallery, Hilo Hawaii, has a lush organic quality, which makes it seem like a life form has taken root and is growing over the walls of the place.

The artist is well known for her use of paper and other office supplies to create her artworks, and this work is no different. Here, ordinary colored paper and birthday party table cloth are used to great effect to create this inter-dimensional wonderland.

You can check out more images after the jump.
