Seamless is a Digital Composite Collage Artist
Joshua Osburg is a contemporary artist living and working in Saint Louis, Missouri. His primary mediums are oil paintings and graphite drawings. His work is inspired by his experience as an Iraq War Veteran and life before and after war. His art reflects the subconscious interests and endurances of those who have suffered trauma and the cruelness of the human condition. Using his own experiences, he explores the relationship between mental health disorders and the sufferer. His paintings and drawings unhinge negative thoughts by relinquishing them to panel and paper.
Inspired by renaissance artists like Titian, expressionists like Otto Dix and the surrealist movement, Joshua Osburg employs various techniques and theories into his work as components of his expression. Joshua Osburg received his Master’s in Fine Arts with an emphasis in painting from Fontbonne University in Saint Louis, Missouri in May of 2018.
Evan Lawrence creates strange and contemporary surreal art. Self-taught, Lawrence uses ambiguous symbolism to explore his transcendent visions. He is inspired by “the delusion of the beautiful things until the weird moments; represented by the emotional feeling of himself”.
Lawrence’s work is part reminiscence and part artifact of his own inner meditations. Reflecting on past experiences and encounters, the work raises questions of identity, meaning, and representation. Lawrence hopes his work ultimately contributes to a better world by acting as a mirror the viewers’ subconscious.
“I see art personally as the bridge between conscious and subconscious, between what is real and not real. I express and balance my ego with it. Surrealism is like an escape room for me, a self-investigation of identity. I always try to infuse each piece of my work with my feelings, desires, moods, and dreams of the moment, using art as a basic language; transliterate the noetic perceptions into explicit views.”
Through the mindful practice of fine art and a passion for cultural affairs worldwide, Eric Johnston has created a distinctive visionary approach to his artwork.
Every component of Eric’s artwork relies on one main objective, to precisely reveal a connection in the subconscious mind and alternative realms that cannot exist in our conscious reality.
Using academic realism, surrealism, and abstract influences to contemporary art, his paintings represent the way humans perceive reality and the environment in which they exist during dream states.
Mr. Johnston’s artwork is centered on the principle of eliciting strong emotional responses to everyday elements based on the viewers’ past experiences.
The ability to see beauty in simplicity is a theme carried throughout every piece of Eric’s artwork which speaks in a language all of its own.
Color, form, and composition are all key attributes in Eric’s daily life that help shape the way he views the world around us.
A lifetime of drawing and creative mind authority, have led to a realization that all his paintings are physical manifestations of the dream realm.
