Fernando Vicente is a Spanish illustrator. His website contains a lot of his commercial work but, his blogs’ have more of the “Art”.
We just discovered Free News Projects, who in turn introduced us to Pablo Bronstein.
“London-based Pablo Bronstein is a young artist floating out of time. His is an eye that can, say, synthesize the dripping, ornate grandeur of European Rococo architecture with the juvenile, weird, building-block edifices of the 1980s. In A Guide to Postmodern Architecture in London, a short book published by Walther Konig in 2008, Bronstein made it look obvious, and perfect. Bronstein’s indulgence educates selflessly, for his is an art that encourages others to look harder and draw the most from their own obsessions. In October 2006, the artist dryly guided a coach tour around London to share his discoveries.” Thanks to FNP for the tip.
