There’s a lot going on in Lillianna’s collages. In my eyes it looks like she’s superimposing glimpses of other levels of consciousness. All of her pieces have a human body as center piece, and yet different elements of this body or its context are completely surreal.

Lillianna explains her process as being built upon mythical stories that have a personal impact on her, but also adds that the power of the collages “lies in the meaning and the broader truths that myths convey”. All in all, I think anyone can adapt their own personal stories to these, which applies to any kind of great art.

Here are two amazing pieces from Andrei Georgescu, one for each gender. The degree of complexity and precision in both of these is mind boggling. I think there are several ways of approaching this type of work, but on first sight they each have larger patterns of gender-related figures which emerge from the apparently chaotic backgrounds. However, as you look more closely at the intricate details of each piece, there seems to be quite a lot of coherence in the patterns and colors. These have to seen in their full size (the links are under the pictures) to be fully appreciated.

Jen’s work combines simple colors with beautiful patterns, she also delivers this combination with lots of space. What all these things leave us with is what you see: stunning and sincere illustrations that give vibes of peacefulness and well-being.

Adam’s work is quite simple and yet very effective. His work can be approached in a many different ways, but either way the controversial themes raised can’t be ignored. Adam doesn’t beat around the bush, and he does it in a very esthetically pleasing manner.

Dan’s work is of the mind-blowing kind. These illustrations not only look like frames from entirely different worlds, they feel like they were created there. Dan seamlessly merges all kinds of shapes and layers with colorful textures, creating amazing artwork. He’s designed CD covers for bands from lots of different music genres such as Prefuse 73 and Pretty Lights

Jon’s creations blend beautiful abstract shapes and patterns with striking colors. I really like this first one, the way the picture is split into different areas each filled completely different colors and patterns, makes me think of colliding galaxies.
