Mark Pernice

Mark Pernice is an artist living in Brooklyn who works in all different mediums. He's recently hit the spotlight with his series of masks based on Apple's Photobooth distorted pictures. They are fantastic and disturbing at the same time. Browsing through his site though, he's so much more that just a pop sensation for the masks. He thinks on a greater level than just humor. He's a designer, an artist, a writer and a craftsman.

Check out his work here.

Brett Amory

A painter from Oakland CA, Brett's newest series is about people waiting. That's it. Waiting. It's beautifully simple. He is a little more verbose on this statement, but for me I love the simplicity. It's a series of people from different places, in different places, all doing the same thing. Something we all spend an average of an hour doing everyday. That's 365 hours of waiting per year. That's a lot of waiting. It's about time someone gave waiting it's proper recognition.

A1ONE is an Iranian graffiti artist merging graf handstyle with Arabic script. Somewhat reminiscent of the work of Jose Parla, his layers of script create a cloud of text and shape that is at once calming and anxiety provoking. He works in many mediums, stencils, stickers, canvas and spray paint. He moves between the gallery and the street seamlessly.

Orion is a Brazilian artist who is mostly known for his use of power washers to create his reverse graffiti in the tunnels of Sao Paolo. His newest project is dubbed Polugraphia. He builds a mount to hold a canvas and stencil behind a tailpipe of a truck and leaves it there for days as the truck drives about the city blasting sooty exhaust through the stencil onto the canvas.
