“Zamudio’s path in art began when he first moved to Texas as a young boy,” a statement says. “In dealing with the challenges that often come with assimilating to a starkly different culture at a very young age, Zamudio found refuge in immersing himself in art. He would replicate his favorite comic book characters, and without knowing, developed an understanding of the human form, and the concepts of color schemes. As he was honing his art techniques with the passing years, Zamudio was also gaining experience with using several different mediums that range from oil paints, to spray paints.”

Josie Morway’s oil paintings are striking representations of the natural world, typically adorned with some combination of wild animals, symbols, text, or abstractions. With her bold subjects and engrossing lighting, she offers reflections on beauty, the universal language of flora and fauna, and messages that are less clear upon first inspection.
It's no secret that choice of medium can significantly accent the subject of the artwork. Fumage is one of those techniques that can't be compared with anything else. By using the flame of a candle or a torch as a pencil to create his paintings with trails of soot, Steven "Spazuk" (covered here) has been creating intricate artworks for over 10 years. He is showing his latest body of work titled "Smoking Guns and Feathers" at Reed Projects gallery in Stavanger, Norway. The show is featuring his latest series of works focused on the fragility and precariousness of the species that share our biosphere. The uncertain future of these fragile "rulers of skies" is accented through use of smoke trails as a painting medium.
Justin Bower’s abstracted, fractured faces maintain a sense of intimacy. In his latest oil on canvas works, Bower’s evolved this approach with new, startling “glitches.” He's current part of the group show "Los Angeles Painting: Formalism to Street Art" at Bruno David Gallery in Missouri, and he was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
The figures in Mo Di’s oil paintings on canvas appear as apparitions and transient, between reality and a dream. In her latest works, these surreal narratives reflect on femininity and life's stages. The artist has her first solo show in Shanghai in the upcoming "My Dream is a Cage" at FQ Projects. The show runs from April 22 through June 30 at the gallery.
