Bedelgeuse is an anatomical collage artist. His work includes cut paper collage, digital collage, and mixed media sculptural collage all centered around human anatomy. Material is primarily sourced from vintage science and medical books that are available from the public domain. Bedel’s works include hand cut paper and digital collages that create a wild amalgamation of botanical, zoological, and anatomical imagery.
David Choong Lee combines elements of graffiti, collage, graphic design, portraiture, and classical realism. His paintings and installations give birth to seemingly endless visual depth through the combination of abstract environments and colorful contrasts, which create the illusion of atmospheric landscapes.
Janey Fritsche believes there’s something magical about where the land meets the sea, the melding of conscious and subconscious. It is also where shells, rocks, quartz crystals, and bio- matter become grains of sand from the flow of water. Illustrated in colorful detail, Fritsche places focus on pre-sand matter of rocks and crystals.
Tobias Tovera is an American visual artist recognized for his work in painting and the sensory surrounds of his metamorphic sculptures. Using the concept of time as a foundation, Tovera’s studio practice explores energy systems, finding new dimensions in his materials as they metamorphose from one form to the next. The conception of his work was inspired by alchemy, medicine, and the primordial formations of living matter.
