Oakland, CA based Jeffrey Cheung’s playfulness and low-brow style of contorted and often nude male figures has quickly gained traction within the Bay Area’s ever-changing art scene. Cheung’s humor translates well across his many paintings, prints, collages, drawings and even murals.

by Ariadna Zierold

Berlin-based illustrator Max Guther‘s hyperreal portraits of everyday stereotypes are made in 3D and intricately textured to incredible detail. His interest in architectural details, interiors, and how the human body interacts with the environment around it to convey everyday situations and activities has evolved in a series of hilarious portraits of a societal stereotype and the environment those characters live in.

Russian artist Oleg Buevskii likes drawing empty spaces. Oleg gets the feeling that something is going to happen there in a moment. The characters who could inhabit those areas are based on constructing the composition of contrasts, that’s why his paintings are made in black and white for the most part.
