Henrique Oliveira

In the world of contemporary art, when you ask an artist about the messages that he/she is trying to convey, you are most likely to receive a pompous answer/just another boring cliché. This was not the case with Henrique Oliveira, the Brazilian emerging artist known for his spatial wooden pieces whose irregular forms devour large spaces which give you the sense that you are actually inhabiting someone’s body.  His answer had no unnecessary use of any conceptual lingo. ”I believe that the message is never art itself, but instead, the lack of a message is a characteristic that makes some creations interesting to me,” he says, adding ”my works may propose a spatial experience, an aesthetic feeling, a language development and many more nominations to refer to the relation it establishes with the viewer. But, any attempt to find a message would fail.”.

I’m always so surprised that Dave McKean doesn’t have a bigger web presence. He has been one of my biggest artistic influences since a friend first loaned me a Sandman comic in the early 90s. His work is dreamlike, dark, disturbing, mysterious and deeply gorgeous. His work has always found a place deep inside of me where it connects. And in my opinion, he helped pioneer an aesthetic and style that is still found frequently in all creative outlets today, from fine art down to music videos and tv commercials.

McKean is a true mixed-media artist. His work combines drawing, painting, sculpture, found objects, digital art, photography and collage. He began as a comic artist, working with Neil Gaiman on such early projects as Violent Cases and Black Orchid. And then came their collaboration on the Sandman series, the greatest comic book/graphic novel series ever, in my humble opinion. McKean has also dabbled in film as well, directing the visually stunning film MirrorMask (a film so imprinted with his artistic vision, it looks like his art come to life), and the short films The Week Before and N[eon]. He is in post-production of another feature length film, Luna, which does not have a release date at this time.

McKean has worked on countless other projects, including the Batman graphic novel Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth, the graphic novel Cages, CD covers for such musicians as Tori Amos and Skinny Puppy, and designed sets and directed film clips for the Broadway musical Lestat to name a few. He even is an accomplished jazz pianist. Seriously, I can’t even begin to list all what the guy does.

ART: Digital Artefacts by Bart Hess

A body plunges into the liquid; a crust of wax crystallizes around its curves and folds, growing architectural forms, layer by layer.
