Matthew Martin has created these really haunting, beautiful paintings of dead landscapes, they are painted in crude oil which just to add to the effect. I had the pleasure of seeing these in person at his degree show, smashing.

Alex Mcuade, I saw their work at the Ferrers Gallery today, I love the mixed media style to the paintings with stitching on.

Kuin Heuff paints these amazing portraits onto canvas and then intricately cuts away pieces of the paintings in really detailed patterns, what a clever person!

Natalie Irish, she creates these unbelievable ‘paintings’ with nothing but a pair of puckered lips and some red lipstick. The video on her website is something seriously cool.

Cesar Del Valle makes this drawings/illustrations that literally leap from the surface, these are so wonderfully placed and thought out it’s the sort of thing that you would almost walk past in a gallery. The guy leaning against the wall is so realistic I did a double take.

By Wednesday Wolf, I often struggle to find paintings that draw me in, but these do exactly that. The Link one has that detached haunting essence that creeps you out and equally hooks your attention, as does the spindly black creature. Also if you don’t know where the red painting is from, then you are too young to be on here.

By Andrew Salgado, you sometimes just find that a painting/s really connect with you and you can’t help but find them resonating your thoughts.

By Dmitriy Rebus, witty and dark humoured paintings/illustrations are always my favourites. The facial expression of the guy on the right is wonderful, the wateriness of the paint itself just makes them even better.

By Marc Johns, I know that this witty illustrator has a big following on here and I think his work is delightful. This series called What Birds Do When We Aren’t Looking is just my sort of thing.

By George Shaw, Turner prize nominee, a huge collection of his work is being exhibited in The Herbert Art Gallery as of tomorrow, I had the pleasure of having a sneak peek at the show while it was being put up, it’s wonderful. I also saw George filming a documentary for the gallery, so check that out too!
