I ask a lot out of art! Hope, capacity, space, Astoundment … a glimpse into real & welcoming surreality … That’s a hefty order, especially for 2D! Here are three wonderful artists I’ve found this month, who’s collective medium of expression happens to be canvas!

The 1st two were featured in the latest edition of Hi-Fructose magazine. The 3rd is a local artist who’s installation is on display at GMU until February 7th…  I strongly recommend a visit in person!

“For me, my art is a significant tool for communication… I am not interested in violence. My art is a language and with it, I hope to create a world of peace, contrasting the violence. So I show Love, Space, and Positive Energy as my themes.”

“I get that reference often, the Tank Girl look … She isn’t anything like Tank Girl. In fact, all my Helmetgirls are unique characters that are very fragile and maybe even tragic.”

“[My themes are] cyberpunk.. and feminism. I think everyone these days, man or woman, is a feminist. Who doesn’t want to be considered pro-woman?”
