This new artwork done in spray paint on canvas is scary beautiful. As serene as it appears, movement therein is undeniable. Beneath the crisp, flowing lines and delicate, misty shadows, a motion teases the surface, shifting and fluctuating with awareness unnoticeable in most modern art.
If this doesn’t take your breath away, you might want to check your pulse. With custom stencils and spray paint, Ray Ferrer has done it again.

This time I want to share some professional paintings that I found intriguing, if not altogether comforting. Since art aims to affect us deeply, it’s no wonder that horror has a place in fine arts also. “Nevermore,” above, beings back images from my own childhood nightmares. And yet, it is… cute. I think.
Poltergeist - Tom Carlton
Speaking of childhood, this was the second movie to give me nightmares. The first being Platoon (nother story). The artist chose precisely the scariest image in the film. I’d set my TV outside, but it’s busy right now.
Think it’s my favorite.
Solitude - Ken Meyer
Just another awesome tonal study. Watercolor has never evoked this kind of emotion in me before. Love it enough to hang it up? Available online.
Uneasy - Matt Truiano
Hauntingly beautiful. So simple in form and genius in perspective. Yet so complex in color and texture. Plus, if you stare long enough, the skull sorta seems to float… Or I’m tired. Either way, sleep will be uneasy tonight, that’s for sure.
This masters degree holder used his formal education in fine art and practical education in baking to bring people closer to the teachings of Buddha – with bread. What looks like a horror movie inspired meat market is actually a bakery with spiritual intent.
Kittiwat Unarrom formed the bread into gruesome likenesses of mistreated human heads, limbs, and organs to remind that things are not what they seem.
Inside each of the masterfully sculpted and decorated baked treats awaited a soft and gooey center of wisdom. That appearances corrupt our senses would be obvious upon biting into one of these tasty sculptures.
Son of a baker, Kittiwat ventured into the family business in 2006, and now runs the family bakery. The factory keeps him busy, but ideas for his art still flow.
Kittiwat held exhibitions as late as 2008. He says his next exhibition will focus on something other than humans.
