In 2015 Rea conducted a New York City residency and sell out solo exhibition at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and the following year was selected alongside 60 renowned international artists in the world&rsquo;s first Instagram Paintguide exhibition held in London.<br />In a recent article for the Huffington Post, Brandon Kralik writes &ndash; &lsquo;Representational painting today is not what it used to be and cannot be dismissed as longing for the past or harkening back to the Romantics of the 19th century. <br />Although Rea&rsquo;s work shares an aesthetic with Romanticism this is not about going back at all. <br />They take from the past and move us toward tomorrow. <br />He calls himself a Contemporary Surrealist Painter. <br />Wikipedia describes Contemporary art as having developed from Postmodern art and although Joel Rea is very much alive and is dealing with issues of our present time, his work is far removed from the multimedia and purely conceptual work that has come to define Postmodernism and much of what is referred to as Contemporary art. To me Rea&rsquo;s work moves in separate direction, one that is reconstructive, or Post Contemporary, as it places importance on craftsmanship and empathy. <br />One thing for certain is that Rea&rsquo;s paintings speak in a language where such words are not needed at all. <br />There need be no artspeak to accompany them, to tell the viewer what is happening. The paintings speak for themselves.&lsquo; September, 2015.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Joel%20Rea%20-%20Australia%2011111.png" border="0" /></div>Gallery of Paitings by Josh Keyes - USA2018-11-13T15:43:09+03:30Website Admin<div>Josh Keyes - USA<br />Josh Keyes is an American artist based in Portland.<br />Born in 1969 in Tacoma Washington. <br />Josh Keyes received his BFA in 1992 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in 1998 from Yale University School of Art. <br />He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally and has work in private and public collections. <br />Keyes currently lives and works in Portland Oregon.<br />In this series of paintings the artist explores the interaction between the world shaped by human and animal life.<br />Josh Keyes&rsquo;

This is evidenced in his painstaking and exquisitely hand carved wooden figures and objects. <br />Gaps between the laminated layers of wood are purposefully left, forming contours for emptiness and visual portals for what lays beyond. His artworks are inspired by contemporary culture, everyday observations, philosophical readings and inquiry, news reports, song lyrics, sporting events and politics, all deciphered with a wry dark humour. <br />His watercolour paintings are almost the opposite of his sculptural works, rapidly executed and often containing many different motifs and texts. They are the antidotes to the length of time each carved piece takes.<br />His artworks remind me of these amazing sculptures created by Gehard Demetz.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Paul%20Kaptein%20-%20Australia%2011111.jpg" border="0" /></div>Gallery of illustrations by Matthew Woodson (Ghostco) - USA2018-11-12T16:25:14+03:30Website Admin<div>Matthew Woodson (Ghostco) - USA<br />Matthew Woodson was born and raised in the rural Midwest, and currently lives in Austin, TX. <br />He graduated from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and has been a full-time illustrator and artist since 2005.<br />Despite the infrequency of website's updates, Matthew is always working and always looking for new and exciting projects.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Matthew%20Woodson%20-%20USA%20111111111.jpg" border="0" /></div>Gallery of sculptures by Romulo Celdran - Spain2018-11-12T15:43:48+03:30Website Admin<div>Romulo Celdran - Spain<br />Spanish artist Romulo Celdran creates huge sculptures of everyday objects for his Macro series.<br />As children, we once discovered the things around us with a lot of curiosities. <br />By placing us before a growing world, the artist plays with our perception: I believe there is a magic in the world of scales. <br />There is a kind of touching memory that invites us to feel the relationship with the Macro objects as if it were a game.<br />Stating,Reality does not exist, Romulo Celdran aims to deconstruct our process of perception with his hyper-realistic drawings and sculptures of everyday things, which demonstrate that reality, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. <br />If what exists is the perception that we have of it, why not explore the underlying principles of that perception he asks. <br />In line with Claes Oldenburg, his explorations take the form of microscopically observed objects, magnified to spectacular scale. <br />He works in both two and threedimensions, on an ongoing series of monochromatic drawings titled Zoom, which are related to his series of mixed-media sculptures, Macro. Celdran does not miss a single infinitesimal detail in his re-creations: his drawing of pencil shavings reveals the finely grained texture of the wood, while his sculpture of a bottle cap includes a dusting of rust.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Romulo%20Celdran%20-%20Spain%2011111.jpg" border="0" width="768" height="969" /></div>Gallery of Drawing &amp; Paitings by Eric Yahnker - USA2018-11-12T15:24:09+03:30Website Admin<div>Eric Yahnker - USA<br />Eric Yahnker is a contemporary artist born in 1976 in Torrance, California. <br />His humorous, meticulously rendered graphite and colored pencil drawings and elaborate process pieces examine pop culture and politics. <br />His work is represented by Ambach &amp; Rice in Los Angeles, where he was included in an exhibition with Erwin Wurm and Raymond Pettibon in 2010.<br />He studied journalism at the University of Southern California before earning his BFA at the California Institute of the Arts in 2000. <br />During his second year at CalArts he worked on the storyboard for South Park: Bigger, Longer &amp; Uncut. <br />After he graduated he drew and directed Seinimation, a series of short animated bonus features on DVDs of Seinfeld&rsquo;s last four seasons.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Eric%20Yahnker%20-%20USA%201111.png" border="0" width="1500" height="1526" /></div>Gallery of Drawing &amp; illustrations by Kevin Deasey - USA2018-11-12T15:12:06+03:30Website Admin<div>Kevin Deasey - USA<br />Visual artist and illustrator Kevin Deasey created this 12 week long series called Inkscapes&rdquo; where he experimented with a mixed media approach to his digital paintings.<br />Kevin started the process with simple ink blot compositions that were later colorized and completed in Photoshop.<br />My name is Kevin Deasey and I&rsquo;m a Chicago-based Visual Designer. <br />Since graduating from Columbus College of Art and Design with a BFA in illustration, I have worked for a variety of industries over the past few years.

His work invokes meta-cycles concerning image inundation and the way these images function in our subconscious and mediate our experiences as citizens of the 21st century.<br />Steeped in a pervasive sense that there ought to be something there that isn&rsquo;t, Sean William Randall&rsquo;s paintings hang in eerie suspense. Toying with a subtle surrealism, Randall employs aesthetic interruptions to play with illusion, surface and depth. Haunting landscapes of unconscious feeling, his paintings beg a variety of questions, alluding to possible narratives through the use of symbolic motifs and atmospheric effect. <br />The pictures refrain from overt description however, rather allowing a space for the viewer to be seduced by the mystery, and to get lost in its painstaking detail. <br />By playing to the psychology of our attraction to the unknown, Randall&rsquo;s work poses a challenge to continue moving forward, deeper into the maze, through the tunnel, hurtling across the sky, and towards the blue future.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery&nbsp;</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Sean%20William%20Randall%20-%20Canada11111.jpg" border="0" /></div>Gallery of illustrations by Robert Deyber - USA2018-11-11T15:58:42+03:30Website Admin<div>Robert Deyber - USA<br />American artist Robert Deyber creates intriguing artworks predominately featuring the visual interpretation of idioms, euphemisms and cliches which creates a unique and almost interactive quality to his paintings.<br />He&rsquo;s been a successful part of Martin Lawrence Galleries for many years, within that time also creating two popular art books.<br />robert Deyber&rsquo;s artwork is full of surprises. Every canvas revels in the artist&rsquo;s sense of humor, each painting a visual rendering of a clever turn on a common phrase. Despite his sense of fun, however, Robert Deyber is a seriously skilled painter. <br />He is endlessly intrigued by visual imaginings that reside in the realm between reality and fantasy, and he is clearly able to render these imaginings brilliantly. <br />His artwork is highly narrative in nature; his paintings convey an almost dreamlike quality to the bemused viewer.<br />Born and raised in Greenwich, Connecticut, Deyber began drawing at an early age. Art was a necessary means of escape from an otherwise difficult world, one in which he set his mind free to visit the most remote places a wheat field in South Dakota, the dunes of the Gobi desert, the moons of Jupiter all within easy reach for a very imaginative young boy.<br />Throughout his paintings, Deyber moves in and out of visual themes and story lines. Compelled to create imagery where he uses a combination of highly stylized composition, light and contrasting colors, his goal is to apply all three skillfully, thereby drawing the viewer into his painting without overpowering or confusing.<br />Deyber is a &lsquo;visual raconteur&rsquo; a storyteller with a paintbrush, his mind&rsquo;s eye planted deep within the subconscious. With artistic roots that hail from the Surrealist movement, among his heroes are Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali. <br />While many of Deyber&rsquo;s paintings contain elements derived from dreams created out of the unpredictable imagery found in the subconscious, the extraterrestrial flowers have more in common with the worlds of alternate natural history imagined by Alexis Rockman or Walton Ford, and the visual rendition of current phraseology and popular culture are more in the tradition of the Pop Art movement. It is, in the end, the undecided tone between sincerity and irony that makes Robert Deyber&rsquo;s artwork distinctly contemporary, his visual vocabulary distinctly his own, but with a worldwide audience.<br />Deyber collectors transcend all traditional boundaries. Private and corporate collectors throughout the United States as well as throughout Europe and Asia have acquired Deyber&rsquo;s paintings. <br />His work has strong appeal and continues to be collected by many in the entertainment industry, including independent film producers, well known screenwriters, designers and musicians. <br />Tom Petty commissioned Deyber to create the cover for Petty&rsquo;s &lsquo;Highway Companion&rsquo; album.<br />Robert Deyber&rsquo;s career has taken him all over the world. <br />He lived for a while in the Umbria region of Italy, and also lived for a time in San Francisco and New York before moving to Boston. <br />He currently resides in Connecticut and is exclusively represented by Martin Lawrence Galleries.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Robert%20Deyber%20-%20USA%201111.jpg" border="0" width="500" height="502" /></div>Gallery of illustrations by Simon Stalenhag - Sweden2018-11-11T15:49:58+03:30Website Admin<div>Simon Stalenhag - Sweden<br />Stockholm based artist Simon Stalenhag creates gorgeous paintings featuring retro futuristic scenarios where humans, machines and dinosaurs coexist.<br />Realities that never came to pass but are so imaginative that you can&rsquo;t help but want to step inside of them.<br />Simon Stalenhag is an artist, musician, and designer specialising in futuristic digital paintings focused on stereotypical Swedish countryside environments. The settings of his artwork have formed the basis for a range of art books and a tabletop game.<br />Artwork<br />Stalenhag grew up in an rural environment near Stockholm, making illustrations of the local landscape inspired by artists such as Lars Jonsson.<br />He only attempted science fiction artwork after discovering concept artists like Ralph McQuarrie and Syd Mead; initially this body of work was done as a side project, without any planning behind it. <br />Thematically, his work often combines his childhood with themes from sci fi movies, resulting in a stereotypical Swedish landscape with a neofuturistic bent.<br />According to Stalenhag, this focus originates from his perceived lack of connection with adulthood, with the science fiction elements being added in partly to draw audience attention and partly to influence the work's mood. <br />These ideas result in a body of work that can feature giant robots and megastructures alongside regular Swedish items like Volvo cars.<br />As his work has evolved, Stalenhag has created a backstory for it, focused around a governmental underground facility.<br />In parallel to the real-life decline of the Swedish welfare state, large machines slowly fail, and the eventual result of this remains a mystery. <br />According to a 2013 interview with The Verge, The only difference in the world of my art and our world is that ... ever since the early 20th century, attitudes and budgets were much more in favour of science and technology.<br />Outside of his usual canon, Stalenhag also drew 28 pictures of dinosaurs for the Swedish Museum of Natural History's prehistoric exhibits, after he rediscovered his childhood interest in the creatures, and contacted the museum to see if he could do anything.<br />In 2016, he followed this with pictures of hypothetical results of a rising ocean under climate change for Stockholm University's Resilience Centre.<br />He also did some promotional artwork for the scifi video game No Man's Sky.<br />Stalenhag uses a Wacom tablet and computer to illustrate his work, which is designed to resemble oil painting.<br />Initially, he attempted to use various physical media to mimic a more traditional style, including gouache. Even after switching to digital methods, he has stated that he puts a lot of effort into making the digital brushes behave naturally and preserve a certain amount of 'handwriting' in the brush strokes.<br />The majority of his work is based on pre existing photographs that he takes; these are then used as a starting point for a number of rough sketches before the final work is completed.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Simon%20Stalenhag%20-%20Sweden%20111111111.jpg" border="0" width="643" height="599" /></div>Gallery of paitings by Scott Musgrove - USA2018-11-11T09:35:45+03:30Website Admin<div>Scott Musgrove - USA<br />Scott Musgrove, born in 1966, currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington. <br />He received a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio.

The artist&rsquo;s paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries across the country including in New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle and San Francisco. <br />He has been featured in numerous publications such as The New York Times.<br />Seattle based artist Scott Musgrove works with wood, bronze, oil paint, watercolors, ink and pencil to create these surreal paintings of animals and imaginary creatures.<br />Some of these incredible artworks are part of his book The Late Fauna of Early North America, available on Amazon.<br />I never intended to discover numerous heretofore unidentified animal species and, thereby, turn the scientific community on its ear. <br />These discoveries, and my theories of how they came to be, have won me few friends and many enemies among experts in the fields of History, Biology, Zoology and the Culinary Arts.&hellip;I don&rsquo;t have many friends in Mathematics either. <br />When one reports honestly from the front lines of Evolutionary Biology, one should be prepared to ruffle a few feathers.<br />In challenging beloved scientific assumptions and throwing a Rhesus monkey wrench into the grinding machinery of the status quo, I have sparked a powder keg of reflexive anger from legions of zoological theorists whose scientific essays and thesis papers now appear, if not merely wide of the mark, patently absurd in the revelatory glare of my newly introduced fauna. They can no better account for the Salvelinus Fontinalis Hirsutus (Hairy Brook Trout) than they can the Elliptical Equine, or any of my newly discovered animal species lodged so high in the tree of life. <br />No matter what your local zookeeper says, these are no mere evolutionary weeds they are leaves on the Tree of life (Life Tree Leaves) that, sadly, have fallen before their time in the cruel summer of our fertile planet.</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Scott%20Musgrove%20-%20USA%20111111.jpg" border="0" /></div>Gallery of illustrations by Ismail Inceoglu - Bulgaria 2018-11-10T16:56:22+03:30Website Admin<div>Gallery of illustrations by Ismail Inceoglu - Bulgaria&nbsp;</div> <div></div> <div><a href="" target="_blank">Gallery</a></div> <div></div> <div><img src="/static/media/uploads/Banafsheh%201/Ismail%20Inceoglu%20-%20Bulgaria%20111111.jpg" border="0" width="400" height="400" /></div>Gallery of Drawing &amp; illustrations by Avalon Nuovo - UK2018-11-06T16:59:02+03:30Website Admin<div>Avalon Nuovo - UK<br />Hi!
