Artists Who Inspire Us - pictures and videos!
We want to share some of our favorite artists with you~ These people inspire us with their innovations and creativity. Here's a few words on why we follow them, followed by examples of their awesomness.
*We don't claim to have taken any of these photos (except the photos of us), or done any of the artwork. We're just showing peoples awesome work!*
“I like the sounds and the topics, and the landscapes that he paints with his music.” https://youtu.be/CEZ-aJYFJfE
“He takes African Americans and paints them in positions of power and grace.” (below)
“A very important innovator of american traditional tattoos. The first person to tattoo with purple.”
“...his ties to the street and graffiti, and commercial art: graphic design. When he tattoos he brings all those different things together. His solid black shit. For along time he just used sharpies, that's pretty dope.” http://mikegiant.com/index.php (below)
“I like Grime because of his work ethic, he never stops making art. He’s a product of the 80s and 90s-lots of bright colors. But it’s hard to pinpoint what his style is, it’s very experimental. It has notes from traditional stuff and new school stuff, but it’s all kind of jumbled and mashed up together. And he has a skate/punk edge. I guess Mike Giant was a skater too.” http://theskullandsword.com/blog/
“She loved nature and pioneered photography’s first medium: cyanotypes. Which were super very delicate and abstract, love them.”
“Their music is very esoteric to me, and has inspired me so much over the years. They’re an all girl band that's really risen up, and grown musically. Stella Mozgawa is probably the dopest drummer I’ve heard in recent times, and Jenny Lee the dopest bass player." https://youtu.be/c_89LoHKB9w
“She's dedicated! She's a freelance illustrator and she does her own videos, Etsy products, packaging and business stuff. She's just a very caring person in general. Her work ethic is very inspiring, I watch her Youtube videos as a pick me up.” https://www.youtube.com/user/frannerd13
“Her imagination is amazing. She comes up with whole back stories and genetics for her horned, magical creatures. I never got into digital painting, but if I do, I hope to be as good as her at it! ...And her color palettes are awesome.” http://feverworm.tumblr.com/
“Her tattoos are so vibrant and bold, she can literally go anywhere in the world and support herself on dope tattoos. An inspiration. Judging by her Instagram, she seems like a charismatic and fun person.” (below) http://www.miryamlumpini.com/
“Very innovative as far as neo-traditional tattoos go! So clean and colorful, his flash is always fresh and funny. He really takes traditional ideas and flips them into something abstract and bright.” (below) http://kaneberry.com/home.html
“I just started following her, and her work instantly hit home for me. Her photographs are beautiful and her colorful abstract tattoos are amazing. The way she’s taken tattoos into a fine art setting like galleries, showing performance art by tattooing on fruit is inspiring. She takes photographs of her work, all things related to tattoos, and takes it to the next level. Yeessss!” http://www.amandawachob.com/ (below)
