Brooklyn based Jules de Balincourt (previously featured here) is a French-American contemporary artist. He is best known for his abstract, atmospheric paintings with saturated colors, blurring the line between fantasy and reality. Force-fed on TV and an all-American mind-junk diet, his paintings are crafted with democratic gusto. Evoking notions of utopia and dystopia, de Balincourt’s paintings investigate public and private spaces and suggest an ever-changing landscape – both physical and psychological.

Carl Burton creates quick atmospheric GIFs that blend elements of science fiction and surrealism. Glittering illuminated tentacles appear to twist through the dark while neon lasers emerge from deep pools of water. Much of what you see here represents Burton’s personal experiments, but the NYC-based creative also lends his illustrative style to images for long-form publications around the web.
