SCOTT BARRY’s work combines illustration, animation, collage, photography and installation. I like the way he combines the elements in his works,  it’s simple but makes a instantaneous connection with the audience, it’s like skipping all the useless words. It has a  bit of mysticism combined with  humor sometimes even sarcasm. It seems that the artist is mainly preoccupied by space and how we integrate in it, sexuality, life and death, the beauty of chaos and the simple  relation between people like in the piece Naked high five.

Kim Cogan is a Fransisco based painter born in Pusan, Korea in 1977, a very young and promising artist.  His work is mostly focused on representing the intimacies of urban life. His refined oil paintings are somehow balancing between realism and abstraction. People tend to associate his work with photorealism, but Cogan paintings however have texture, are rich and tactile and can not be labeled as photorealism.

The thing i love about his paintings is the absence of the subjects, depopulated, it’s like he opens a door for you to walk on the street or just watch silently the landscape of the city or a common building that it seems so familiar and safe. There is no one, just you an the lonely streets and buildings, and Cung fulfilled  one of my dreams.
