Vincent Fantauzzo has some amazing work on his site, demonstrating his incredible ability to create mood through colour and lighting.

Souther Salazar’s work would suggest that he is having more fun making art than should be allowed. Of course, that also means that looking at his work is a great deal of fun, so you won’t find me complaining.
(OK, I’m a liar, I don’t actually think there is such a thing as having too much fun making art)
There are moments when looking at Aaron Smith’s paintings that it becomes hard to believe that you couldn’t reach into the canvas and feel the three dimensional objects within. Great work.
Marcus Bowcott is a man who likes to explore many mediums. However, since this is PaintBlog, I’m only going to mention his incredible series of paintings depicting man-made structures imposing themselves on natural landscapes. You’ll just have to go to the site yourself if you want to find out about his sculptures and installations.
Do you enjoy spectacularly observed studies of modern life painted in a manner that calls upon old world technique? (a silly question, I know) If so, I recommend you spend some time here admiring the work of Denis Ichitovkin. Enough said.
While Greg Swales is primarily a photographer, and a very good one at that, I really enjoy when he puts down his lens and picks up a brush. Luckily, his painting work is on his portfolio site along with his photography, so you can enjoy both!
If you like a little humour with your art, may I recommend the work of Robert Deyber. While his paintings stand on their own as incredible imagery, his titles serve to elevate pun to high art. I’ll leave you to guess at the title of this one.
I’ve always been drawn to urban areas as subject matter, so it’s no surprise that Tristram Lansdowne’s watercolours are knocking me on my butt. His paintings focus on the decaying remnants of urban landscapes long ignored, and the results are amazing.
I’m loving the “Hay Wheels” series Lorne Winters has up on his site. Great work!
