Description of the artwork:
This is an actual Mayan book. It explains the Creation myth. You see that’s the first father. He’s the very first human. He sacrificed himself to make the world. That’s the tree of life bursting out of his stomach. His body became the trees’ roots. They spread and formed the earth. His soul became the branches rising up forming the sky. All that remained was first father’s head. His children hung in the heavens creating the nebula star, Xibalba. So what do you think about that idea? Death as an act of creation.

In her experimental Emptied Gestures series, New Orleans, LA-based visual artist Heather Hansen strives to interpret her dance movements onto a paper canvas by using her body as a tool. These spectacular photographs shot by Bryan Tarnowski, capture the artist from the start to the end of the creative process, where she “empties” her gestures from one form, and then moves on to give all from another.

Canadian artist David Drumlin’s latest series of medium-scale sculptures were recently displayed at a private viewing. Meant as a statement against our absurd glorification of material perfection in contemporary life, the sculptures harness the very tangible and emotive power of texture to great effect. It is the intention of the artist that the confrontation of these forms will make us attach meaning to their presence.
David Drumlin was born in 1977, in Canada,. He is a contemporary visual artist, who works primarily in mixed media.

Chances are that a lot of you might already be familiar with the stunning illustrations of Maahy, an 18 year old artist from the Maldives who has nearly 16,000 Likes on Facebook. Over the years, this brilliant upcoming artist has always taken my breath away with his works, drawn in his bold, signature style. Full of intricate details, his pieces have many hidden surprises that reveal themselves on closer inspection.
Maahy is a self-taught illustrator, a dreamer whose passion and joy for art manifests itself in his pieces. Growing up in the Maldives, a country blessed with sunny skies and crystal clear seas, caused him to be inspired by the beauty of nature.
My art portrays the minimalism of black and white as well as the chaotic beauty and mystery of doodling, zentangles, streams of flowing lines and the fascinating scent and touch of coffee. I work intimately with ink pens and graphite pencils. For me, The key to finishing a detailed art piece is immense patience and perseverance. I always carry a camera with me to capture organic and interesting patterns, shapes and designs I see every day. Whether it be on the road, in a mud puddle, the dancing clouds, or in a trailing foot print, I always keep my inspiration rolling.
Apart from undertaking commissions, the artist has also begun designing tattoos. You can buy select limited edition prints of his works at his online store.
