Tang Yau Hoong’s cities rise out of thin air in his colorful illustrations. His whimsical use of light, texture, and simple design encourages his viewers to look for more in each work. “I love to play with negative space and illusion in my artwork. My illustrations are mostly conceptual, surreal and minimalist.”
Tang Yau Hoong is a self-taught illustrator currently located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His clever illustrations have been featured on apparel by Urban Outfitters, Threadless, and Gap, and displayed alongside magazine articles for Say Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, and Wired Magazine.
Nicholas Wilton was born in San Francisco, California and spent his youth exploring the wilderness areas of Marin County. As a teenager he studied design with the German contemporary glass artist Ludwig Schaffrath, who catalyzed his ongoing passion for art making.
Nicholas studied art at the College of Creative Studies in Santa Barbara and then went on to receive his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In addition to gallery exhibitions and the inclusion in numerous private and corporate collections, Wilton’s paintings have been used on the covers of the national bestseller “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and Brene Brown’s “The Gifts of Imperfection”.
Recently, the US Postal Service issued a stamp featuring Wilton’s artwork.

I love to see artist’s experimentations. The pieces in a series where you can see they pushed themselves to really get to the edges of the subject — trying everything they could think of. And I feel that Lourdes Sanchez does just that with her patterns. She takes it to the limits. I just chose her dots to focus on here, but there’s a lot more where these came from! Very fun!

Good golly, these are fun! The palette, shapes and textures of Sarajo Frieden’s collages are just beautiful.
