Artwork pick of the week: Porcellana

She looks tender, fragile and like a doll: The girl on our artwork pick of the week, entitled “Porcellana” created by Colin Bourbon.

This picture – which you can, as usual, order as poster, art print or canvas print among others at ARTFLAKES – is not only intriguing due to the large eyes of the model, but due to her full lips and of course her extraordinary and fluffed hairstyle as well. Somehow this pictures reminds us of one of these large-scaled portraits of the old masters: Wherever you are in the room – the eyes will follow you. Scary, but beautiful!

Advent calendar: Door Nr.7

Taking a look from the distance on the picture  “Guatemala Market” taken by Jean du Boisberranger could make you think: What kind of colourful bustle is that? Looking closer, you can see dozens of people hustling and pushing on a marketplace, clad in traditional costumes and carrying big bags of market goods in their hands. This interesting, colorful picture is behind our Advent door Nr. 7.

You can literally feel, smell and taste what is happening on this Central American ground: Exclamatory voices advertising their own goods as well as aromatically smelling fruit and vegetables – add the overwhelming colours and I guess you need no further explanation why we chose this picture as artwork pick of the week?

Artwork pick of the week: Venice

The picture we have chosen as out ARTFLAKES artwork pick of the week does exude – wich sugar-sweet colours and fresh flowers – a comfortable feeling of summer, sun and relaxation.

Just look at the picture – which is simply called “Venice, Italy, by the way” – for some minutes and imagine strolling around the warm lagoon city in your flip flops with a pastel coloured ice cone in your hand, enjoying life. You could almost forget that summer is still several months away, couldn’t you?

The picture is available at ARTFLAKES as poster, framed art print, canvas print, GalleryPrint oder greeting card. As usual.

Artwork pick of the week: “Cactus”

We are quite spiky this week with our ARTFLAKES artwork pick. But the picture “Cactus“, taken bei Romanian artist Ioana Epure has simply convinced us: What an intriguing combination of colour! Epure, having lived in Birmingham, UK for some time now, has make her mark as a documentary and concert photographer.

Despite these cactuses aren’t able to make music, they are not less interesting to look at, isnt’t it? You can buy them on ARTFLAKES a  greeting card, poster, framed print, canvas print or Galleryprint.

Artwork pick of the week: “Montage”

“A girl knitting herself”, artist Robert Scholten has written as a description of his picture with the title “Montage“.

And indeed it seems like the woman, whose outline of her body is only visible to some extent and who is wearing not more than a pair of striped socks, is extending her hairdo with thick knitting needles.

Thus the illustration, which you can buy at ARTFLAKES as poster, framed art print or greeting card among others, radiates a whiff of surrealism somehow…

Artwork pick of the week: “Spectres”

Spectres” our first artwork pick of the week of the year 2016 is named. Although those alleged ghosts do not look THAT awfully creepy: The colourful mountains made out of triangles, where the spectres are bent over, add a fair portion of joy to the picture.

And the beating hearts, that seem to provide these two characters with enough circulating blood, make them look even more human. The fact is that this illustration made by artist Lala Gallardo – who, according to her profile at ARTFLAKES, likes to work with cloth, paper, ceramcis, plastic or even wood – brightens up our mood.

You can buy the artwork of the week as Art print, GalleryPrint, Greeting Card, Poster or Canvas print. Go for it and Happy Halloween!

Artwork pick of the Week: “Autumn sun”

This week we again rummaged around the picture box that is ARTFLAKES and fished out the charming illustration “autumn sun” of the German artist Judith Clay.

Judith was trained as a ceramic painter and later on studied literature – her love for drawing and telling stories is reflected in her enchanting illustrations that look like they were just taken out of a fairy tale.

“I like it best when I can please others with my pictures”, she writes in her profile. We are convinced that this is working quite well!

Artwork pick of the week – Kristina Sabaite

“My uncle has a moustache Big and Black moustache And he looks so seriuous I can´t stop laughing…” – with these words lithuanian illustrator Kristina Sabaite explains her artwork “Moustache“, which now can be found and bought at ARTFLAKES.

Moustache have become trendy again – not only with young guys living in Berlin who want to revive the 80s – and are printed on posters, coffee cups or t-shirts.

We fell in love with the picture of the little playful girl and her fake paper moustache immediately and thus have chosen it for our first “artwork pick of the week”

Artwork pick of the week: Pair of Phoebes

Matthew Goik is an American illustrator who lives with his two cats in Arizona. We are totally in love with his illustrations. That’s why we choose one of his many awesome works as our artwork pick of the week. The inspiration for the illustration of a pair of phoebes, we are told in the description, is by the way a “rocking book of birds from North America”.

Get yourself an exclusive print of this beautiful illustration by Matthew Goik – available at ARTFLAKES as framed art print, poster, Gallery Print, canvas print and greeting card.

Artwork pick of the week: Books

In times of eReaders, we often forget about traditional books. But there is no better feeling than holding a book in your hands, feeling, smelling the paper and getting lost in the words leaping from the pages.

That’s why we decided to choose this photograph called “Books” as this weeks artwork pick of the week. The photograph was taken by Cristobal Ladron de Guevara, a chilean artist, who’s work includes besides photography also painting and illustration.

You can buy this beautiful photograph as framed art print, poster, GalleryPrint, canvas print or greeting card in various sizes on ARTFLAKES. Also have a look at Guevara’s shop and his other artworks.
