Weekly Weird Art: Mario Martinez aka MARS-1

By Sam Reeve

I don’t pretend to know for a second how to describe art, and there’s a big part of me that has no inclination to get better at it. That being said, I’ve stolen something from Mario Martinez’s website that describes his art far better than anything else I’ve read.

The artist signature style is of vast, abstracted, quasi-extraterrestrial looking landscapes feature imagery of surreal distortions, contained within spherically convex transparent bubbles. Skillfully combining optical color blending with perspective line work, his painting techniques result in very three-dimensional forms, which echo the anatomy of architecture, and microcosmic structures of biology.

Mario Martinez is a young artist based out of San Francisco, California. He mostly paints, but also has some wonderful sculptures. See more of his work here.

Weekly Weird Art: Oliver Hibert

By Sam Reeve

Oliver Hibert’s illustrations are at once a psychedelic throwback to the art of the 60s and a surreal look into a colourful future. Born in Seattle in 1983, he started exhibiting at a very young age. With art this hard to ignore, it’s no wonder that at the age of 18 his work was used in an MTV music video. Besides MTV, Oliver has worked with the likes of Nike, Disney, Adidas (and many more).

Visit his website here to see more work.

Day 30: Eduardo Bertone

By Sam Reeve


Weird Art Month is almost over, but we’ve already made it past the Black Day, and hopefully most of you did so unscathed.

Eduardo Bertone is an illustrator and graphic designer. He was born and raised in Argentina despite being an Italian citizen, but since then has spent time living in Spain and the UK. He has done graphic design for a lot of big name companies and organizations, including the World Wildlife Fund and Stolichnaya Vodka.

Below you’ll find an assortment of his art and graphic design work, all of which is colourful and awesome.











Day 14: Satoshi Sakamoto

By Sam Reeve

Satoshi Sakamoto‘s detailed style and use of bright colours really reminds me of Alex Grey‘s work, only it’s much more abstract. He was born in Aomori prefecture in 1970 and studied art in Tokyo. He now lives in Hirosaki city.

Day 2: Yoko d’Holbachie

By Sam Reeve

Yesterday the brutal art of Mark Riddick was featured, but today I have something a much cuter and light-hearted for you, but equally as awesome! Almost as cute as her paintings, Yoko d’Holbachie was born in 1971 in Yokohama, Japan, where she still resides. Her art has appeared in galleries around the world, and she’s got a solo show coming up in the spring of 2012 at the Animazing Gallery.

So, without further ado, here’s the wonderful work of Yoko d’Holbachie:
