Frank Zappa Frank Zappa
by Eric White

Eric White (b. June 3, 1968 in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American artist, who currently lives and works in New York, NY. He graduated with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990. “One can hardly look at it for very long, as the precision with which it is painted does not allow for one specific focal point. These paintings go against the commonly appreciated aesthetic that encourages the viewer to take in the piece in an orderly fashion and instead almost forces the observer to look away. He uses what we often find in photography and creates dreamlike paintings with what he calls “hyper-anal” technique.

Tina Turner Tina Turner
by Sebastian Kruger

Sebastian Krüger (born June 30, 1963 in Hamelin, Germany) is a German artist. Sebastian Krüger was born in Hamelin in 1963. After studying free painting with Prof. Dörfler at the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts he made a stunning reputation as the designer of a number of cover spreads for the press in Germany and abroad and as an illustrator and creative designer of various LP covers. He then stepped away from commercial work and devoted himself solely to free painting. Artistically he has developed, in recent years, away from the early role of the so-called “star caricaturist” to that of a star of the New Pop Realism. His artistic visions are treasured and collected by other stars of the pop scene, like the Rolling Stones, who are friends of his, and by art connoisseurs all over the world.
