It's surREAL

The atmosphere in the works of Eugenia Loli is surreal both witty and sarcastic with a hidden message behind it all. She herself is originally from Grece but is now staying performing her art in California (US). 

Here's a selection of her works. Eugenia is both a filmmaker and a modern vintage collage artist. Stop by her website yourself for more surrealism. 

A rocky start

Portraits painted with words

Take a look at these fine images made by John Sokol (b. 1947). We absolutely love the way he combined the author with his or hers written works by painting their portrait using their own words. 

John Keats as Lamia 

Samuel Beckett as as waiting for Godot

Walt Whitman as Leaves of grass

Find your own favorite among the greatest!

Anticipation creating atmosphere

Russell Gordon-Jones is painting sort of surreal spaces where the mere anticipation creates an very interesting atmosphere.

Russell just recently took his BA in fine art from Oxford school of fine art and we are intrigued by the atmosphere and his interest in Lynch and Hitchcook. Have a look for yourself and find the inspiration.

Human desires from porcelain pieces

Her name is Louise Hindsgavl (b. 1973). She is a Danish porcelain artist and among other things she makes human desires from porcelain pieces. 

Her art pieces are quite remarkable, weird and then most of all they are beautiful to look at, as if a partly fairy tail universe and partly human universe is unfolding before your eyes. It's quite remarkable and we love it! 

Her works are nothing like the porcelain pieces you find in the window at your grandparents house. They have a different story and tell and so much more than what meets the eye at first glance. 

Louise's works contain both entertainment and reflection for an afternoon out of the sun thinking about our desires in a sort of mash up. 

Take a look for yourself at Louise's HP and drop a comment below. 

Have a happy summer. Love Stella.

Two sides of every body

Gracia Hagen (self-taught artist from Chicago) took some wonderful photos of different models from two very different perspectives. One of them sowing them off the models as pretty as ever and the other one showing the same body but from a less fortunate position, or? The point is very different! 

Gracia Hagen wants us to understand that every person can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances and two seconds later transform into something completely different.

The series 'Illusions of the body' was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Now she even turned the pictures into a book. 

Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
