Favorite Artist of the Moment: My Korean Sister Stella Im Hultberg

Scooch on over Audrey K, let’s make some room for Stella. Stella Im Hultberg is a painter who’s currently living and working in Brooklyn, NYC. She was born in South Korea, raised in Seoul, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and later in California, where she studied Industrial Design and worked as a product designer before serendipitously finding a career in painting and drawing. What’s so amazing about her work is that she beautifully blends old and new styles and techniques. There are strong classical elements in her work as well as a clear Asian influence in regard to her choice of materials and her use of calligraphic marks. Gorgeous!

We can see her work at Audrey + Friends 11-07-08 through 11-29-08 at ThinkSpace.

But when Slovenian photographer Jaka Bulc traveled to the Cinque Terre, he immersed himself in a different side of the towns. The result is a set of timeless images that peel back the layers of the well-loved vacation spot.

Portraits of Legendary Musicians Painted on Vinyl Records

For years, Arizona-based artist Daniel Edlen has created show-stopping works of vinyl art. Inventively using records as his canvas, Edlen has redefined “album art” with his painted portraits of iconic singers and beloved bands. To create each masterpiece, Edlen applies acrylic paint directly onto the record’s vinyl. Stark, black-and-white tones enable each singer’s portrait to dramatically pop from its black background, and delicate, dappled brushstrokes reminiscent of pointillism emphasize the surface’s unique contours.
