Martin Wittfooth

Martin Wittfooth
A couple weeks ago, Martin Wittfooth premiered his powerful new collection of paintings at the Lyons Wier Gallery in New York. As he mentioned in this insightful interview with the gallery leading up to the show, "The Passions is an exploration of the destructive nature of blind faith, specifically the ideas of martyrdom and sainthood along with the violence, self sacrifice, and suffering frequently associated with these concepts". When realized in Martin’s typically style, surrogate creatures are substituted to make his points with the resulting pieces full of symbolism and searing imagery, all rendered in his signature palette and patina.

Just Another Blog MEGGS

Just Another Blog
You need to take the time to watch this beautiful video of 'Meggs' who went up to the Endeavor Snowboards' design office in Vancouver last month to paint some custom installations, including the largest wall mural he has ever done!

Meggs offers up insights into the art scene and his inspirations... it's really great. Enjoy!

This is my New/old blog that had been sitting dormant for about a year.
I usually use facebook as my blog but with the stigma attached to using it to much I thought this would be a nicer way to express myself.

I'll be posting painting, drawings and thoughts.

Hope there's something in it for everyone.
