katarina pridavkova’s streetscapes – and giveaway winners!

Slovakian artist Katarina Pridavkova describes herself as a ‘surrealist painter and sculptor’. Using a combination of found materials, cardboard, paper, metal and ceramics she is fast becoming known for creating fantastical streetscapes.

Living and studying in Spain led to Pridavkova building an imaginary mini-city, inspired by the streets of Mallorca, a caricature of the city. Her thesis project, Grow Up, was meant to invite people into her imaginary world. I accept her invitation. . .I would love to jump into the streets and live there for awhile. . .

anthony hansen: metal poems

Working primarily with metal scraps salvaged from cars, Anthony Hansen transforms the discarded sheet metal into wall sculptures and VERY large hearts.

Anthony Hansen Heart

Hansen enjoys the process – from gathering and sorting like colors, to exploring textures and finishes that conjure up faded memories. Each piece is designed, cut, hammered, riveted, welded and finished by hand by the artist in his California studio.Anthony Hansen Vitamin C

“Weaving some of those stories together into my own metal poem and creating hearts out of found/reclaimed elements constantly reminds me of the humanity that we all share, and how closely all of our different lives and journeys are connected.”

“As an artist, I have focused on using found and reclaimed materials. I like using automotive sheet-metal because it has such character and warmth. Every scratch and spot of rust offers visual texture and interest. Text and type, through the use of old signs and license plates adds dimension and an implied storyline. I enjoy creating pieces that are a patchwork of the past and the present, a mixing of the bright and shiny, as well as the dull and faded.”

My heart did a little flip flop when I came upon February 52 (pictured above). That happens to be the month and year of my parent’s anniversary. Wow. . .I think my mother and father are checking in to let me know that although they are gone from the physical plane, they are still here in spirit and watching over us. xoxo

Stefan Peters paints landscape scenes on layers of mylar. The Belgium based artist uses pins to create space between layers, adding depth and shadows to the paintings. The landscapes are mounted inside insect boxes, offering a close-up glimpse into another world.
