YHWH by Mark Ryden

YHWH by Mark Ryden

Anyone who is paying attention to modern art needs no introduction to Mark Ryden. And enough ink has been spilled over his work that I frankly have nothing to add that would bring anything new to the table. This vinyl figure, based on his painting of the same name, is Ryden's first foray into making toys based on his work and the results are stunning. Sculpted by Dave Pressler, manufactured by Bigshot Toyworks, and produced by Necessaries Toy Foundation (the nom de plume of noted collector Long Gone John), the YHWH figure is nothing short of breathtaking. The box along is worth the purchase price. And at $180, it's the single most affordable piece of work you'll ever be able to get from Mark Ryden. Scoop one up now while you still can!

Travis Lampe is a rare talent where vision, ability, pathos and whimsy all coverge into a body of work that can only be described as captivating! Travis' character design is some of the best (and most unsung) in the art world today...while artists like KAWS and Gary Baseman get their due, Travis' work is appreciated primarily by fans who are "in the know". His characters frown and sob and grimace and grin and no matter what is going on in his works you always feel that disaster is imminent...or you just missed one. This two-color print is an excellent example of his work, and affordable for anyone.

Mike Budai has some pretty solid character design, but that is not the aspect of his work that makes him incredible. The fact that he is able to hand-pull screenprints that are so clean, so solid, with such tight registration that they can easily be mistaken for digital prints? THAT is what makes him incredible. Mike makes the rounds on the Flatstock/Gigposter circuit where he is spoken of with awe. Few artists have the wherewithal to tackle a print that requires 23 individual screens, each with perfect registration. Fewer still could do it, even if they wanted to. This print is a stellar example Mike's work. His color selection, character design, and incredibly clean print technique make this an absolute steal for the price. Affordable, accessible, and wonderful. Mike Budai is a true gem.

Brian Morris is one of those rare illustrators who has found a clear and definitive voice in what can easily become a cliche subject: skulls. His work, featured often in the revered lowbrow magazine "I Want Your Skull", is both unsettling and delicate. His line work is the envy of many an up-an-coming artist, and his sense of composition is clear and unwavering. This piece is ink and acrylic on wood, and his use of the natural grain as highlights for the hair really set this apart from his rare forays into color as well as his more typical black-and-white drawings on paper. The choice to use a visibly organic substrate is a good one for him, and while his work on paper is stunning his work on wood feels more (dare I say it?) natural. Another talent you would do well to keep an eye on, Brian resides in Chicago.
