Samantha Wall’s art attempts to document internal emotions. She believes there is more to internal emotions than can be realized in a painting by facial expressions. Her latest work, “Let Your Eyes Adjust to the Dark” reveal inner emotions without revealing any specific facial features. Her beautiful female figures are expressive and alive, revealing and mysterious even though they are created with only ink and pigment. “Let Your Eyes Adjust to the Dark” is at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle,WA October 1st – 31st, 2015.  Visit Samantha’s website to see her portfolio.

Vhils (Alexandre Farto) is known for his street art. Vhils also works in other materials, and uses other techniques, including using explosives. He creates by subtracting, or creative destruction. He chisels away styrofoam, cork, and paint from wood doors to reveal beauty. He even uses carefully placed explosives to blast away portions of exterior wall to create beautiful art.  You can see more of Vhil’s work at Yatzer, at my original post on Cross Connect Magazine, on his website.
