Chad VanGaalen- Chad’s Basement

.

.

.

Chad VanGaalen is a unique artist spawned of the open plains of the Canadian prairies.   With a musical and visual flurry from the shadows of an introspective consciousness, he brings us creations that are most purely his.   Whether recording eponymously mournful musings or experimenting with electronic cascades  under the pseudonym Black Mold, Chad VanGaalen consistently finds ways to examine areas most commonly untouched.   A one-man creative machine, enjoy the videos that he himself animated as a friendly companion to his own music:

Allie Brosh- The Wonder of the Everyday

.

.

.

.

Hyperbole and a Half is a wonderful blog comic chronicling the history of a young woman moving through this emotional miasma that we call life.    With charming  autobiographical pictorial representations, a “being there” approach to story telling, and a sense of wonder imbued within the everyday, Allie Brosh shares her journey with us, and we smile along with her.

Toba Toba – The Future is Bright

A vibrant and enticing fantastical world;  Amelia Eguia and Julian Mantel create light boxes and installations that pull us away from grey skies and rough concrete into a bright realm where creatures are magical and the environment welcomes us with open arms.  Together they are Toba Toba and, as transplants from Buenos Aires, the fantasy continues to unfold in Milan.

Tetsuya Ishida- Resigned to His Fate

.

.

.

.

Tetsuya Ishida, a young Japanese painter, exhumed imagery from deep within, merged it with the modern industrial world, and wedded the experience into an exhibition of a solitary sadness.  His surrealistic self-portraiture induces us to pause and empathize,  and perhaps examine our own existential separation, and yearn for a meaningful connection.

His works from 1999 examine this theme most poignantly, to embody the loss and express a muted frustration.

Tetsuya Ishida was hit by a train, and died, in 2005, and we wish him peace.

Marwencol- A War to Remember

.

.

.

.
Ten years ago Mark Hogancamp was bludgeoned into a coma outside of a bar by 5  men.   When he awoke, Mark found that he could not walk, eat, or speak, or remember much of anything.  From such tragedy doth great expression awaken.  Mark has created a fantastical model WWII town in the form of Marwencol, a place where the mind heals and the imagination explodes.
