Julianna Brion lives and works as an illustrator in Baltimore, MD. All of her work is excellent but I particularly love this self-portrait entitled “The Illustrator” - I can certainly relate.
‘The Other Ends’ is a show of new drawings by Winnie Truong. In this series, she continues her ongoing relationship with hair beyond aesthetic and beauty, exploring the tensions between surface identity and what stays hidden.
The show opened in New York on April 4th, at Mulherin + Pollard.

Artist Harding Meyer creates oil on canvas portraits using a fractured and distorted style.
I think I’m a bit obsessed with defaced portraits. This drawing by Ryan Mrozowski is my current favourite of the genre.
I’ve recently enjoyed seeing artwork where photographs are used as the foundation for paintings. Charlotte Caron’s portraits are particularly beautifully executed with a mask-like effect.
The artist says that the works “are trying to respond to a form of duality…ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait.”

Julian says “I wanted to make something that reflected the more surreal qualities of the show “Louie” and the unlucky/unfortunate things that happen to or around Louis CK’s TV persona. So I thought, what’s more unfortunate than dropping your ice cream cone on the ground?”
