Minjae Lee, a  South Korean artist is only 19 years old and mainly self-taught.  He uses classic mediums like markers, pens, acrylic paint, and pencils to create these amazing illustrations.  His work is full of emotion and color as he mixes organic lines with geometric shapes.  He is currently just breaking into the commercial  world and is definitely someone to watch for in the future.

Recycled Toy Art…

New Dog, New York

Robert Bradford, originally from London, creates these life-size sculptures of animals from discarded toys, found odd ends, and plastic bits.  Before becoming a sculptor, he worked as a mental health worker and then a psychotherapist.  I find that his work evokes memories of my childhood, probably due to similarity between his favorite materials and my childhood toys.  His work, however, is not just limited to recycled, plastic animals.  His portfolio also includes fire and wood sculpture, mixed media paintings, and manipulated toys.

“For a long time now I have preferred to use materials that are not bland i.e. have some kind of history of weathering or use. One day about four years ago out in the studio I was looking into my childrens box of outgrown / discarded toys which happened to be stored in the same building and responded to the random collection of colours shapes and forms they made. I figured that if I could find a way of putting them together to constitute a larger form they would have great potential as larger scale sculpture.” -Robert Radford
