Newbrow; 50 Contemporary Artists documents 50 prominent artists in the Newbrow art movement. Newbrow art stylistically fuses pop art with surrealism. Over 180 images of art make this an exciting book for the art lover and art novice. The artists are of American, German, and Australian descent. Politically toned art, funny ironic art, stenciled and vibrant street art, illustrative art comprise some of the styles in this collection. Each artist has nearly two pages of color imagery, and a paragraph detailing their influences and other biographical information. I particularly enjoyed Joka's, Walt Hall's, and Casey Weldon's art. Shane Pomajambo complied and wrote this art book. Shane is the CEO and Creative Director at Art Whino Gallery in Washington DC. He is obviously very committed to exhibiting national and international artists. This book is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in contemporary art.
Positive Creations; The Visionary Art of Chris Dyers is written by and complied by Chris Dyers. This is a compilation of Chris Dyer's works from 1979 to 2010. His early childhood skateboarding adventures sparked his keen interest in art. Dyers is a mellow meditative type and his work is psychedelic and visionary in nature. Dyer's spirited personality is evident in this book. He writes that art is his great calling and he is passionate about nature as well. He is a Peruvian artist who lives in Canada and due to a lot of time spent traveling Dyer is extremely worldly. His lessons and inspirations learned through traveling are apparent in his work. Chris is an extremely prolific and multifaceted artist! His collection includes paintings, sculptures, sketches, skateboard graphics, murals, and street art. All of his work is extremely colorful and bursting with positive energy. This book 's title is utterly perfect. This collection is highly recommended for anyone interested in contemporary art, street art, psychedelic art, and dynamic and unusual life stories.
