I saw these paintings over on ‘this isn’t happiness’ and thought they were pretty great. Erik Thor Sandberg is a Washington DC based artist who’s obviously got a thing for a bit of Hieronymus Bosch. “Using symbolism both established and personal, Sandberg creates narratives without definitive beginnings or ends; he captures pivotal moments and isolates them from time.” I really love the tones in these paintings, serious talent there. Erik Thor Sandberg is represented by Conner Contemporary and you can find loads more work on his site below.
Some slightly disturbing Hieronymus Bosch esq work from the four piece Belgian collective Hell’O Monsters. Hell’o Monsters comprises of 4 artists: Antoine Detaille (Tatone), François Dieltiens (Desro), Jérôme Meynen (Blastus) et Grégory Van Cleemput (Ewing 33).
“The group’s creations, despite their colorful and happy look, are in fact caustic commentaries on the adult world, human nature and society.”
Hell’o Monsters are currently exhibiting their work at ALICE Gallery, Brussels, Belgium until the 6th of April 2012. Limited edition prints of their work is available here.
