‘ACID IN THE ICE CREAM’ DRAWING SERIES BY ZACH JOHNSEN

acid-in-the-ice-cream_set1

Zachariah Johnson is a young artist concentrating in watercolor, pen & ink, and mixed media works on paper. His medium of choice is the micro pen and he uses them exhaustively to describe a world of ghouls, monsters, and misfits – the shady characters of everyday life, but just hidden from normal view.

I like the Acid In The Ice Cream series because of the color contrast used. A large portion of the pieces are either shades of gray or white, but the focal point of the pieces lies at the heads of the subjects. There is a beam of colors that explodes away from the subjects, which kinda reminds me of a sci-fi movie.

The series also features a number of pieces on cut wood. These are two of my favorite works from the series:

explosive-donuts-install

This piece is titled Explosive Donuts Install and it’s acrylic on layered, cut wood.

juggling-ghosts

This piece is titled Juggling Donuts Install and it’s acrylic on cut wood.

Artwork By Steve

If I told you I knew who Steve was I would be lying. No for real, his (I’m guessing he’s a dude) website doesn’t even have any biographical info so I really can’t tell you who Steve is. All I know is that Steve’s artwork is dope.

Most, if not all, of Steve’s work is acrylic on canvas, which I think is dope. Also, the subjects of most of his artwork are female. I really like the colors he uses ‘cuz you get this summer-ish vibe from his artwork.

Anyways, this one here, titled violet, is his first artwork I came across and probably my favorite.
