John Kilar

Meet John Kilar, photographer based in Venice, California. From the few questions I asked John I got the idea John is not a man of many words. Not that talking is a necessity in any way, as his intense photography is loud enough. Amazing portraits of life, the beaches and vanilla skies of the ‘golden state’, hippie festivals; it’s all documented in John’s travels and adventures. John: “Nature is my biggest inspiration and it...

Centina

Browsing through Flickr on a rainy day, I was instantly awed by the beautiful work of street / graffiti artist Centina. Hailing from Parma in Italy, Centina is a carpenter, a regular street art misfit and a self-proclaimed ‘bite-proof animal’ (don’t ask). Anyway, there’s definitely a lot of love for painting shining through in his works that varies from amazingly shaded portraits in abandoned factories to fire-extinguisher...

She mixes fantasy with reality seamlessly and turns every picture into a dream, hence the title 'little dreamers' for her latest series. Dara: " 'Little dreamers' is about your inside child....

Orticanoodles – people from another planet

There is nothing like the amazing cuts of stencil art ninja’s Orticanoodles! The Italian duo consisting out of Wally and Alita are definitely amongst the top stencil artists in the world. With their original style and continues re-inventing of themselves and the stencil art technique, I have been amazed by them for quite a while. Actually, since I first laid eyes on their work during the Paint & Beer festival in 2008. The...
