Scottish artist inspired by Greek and Celtic Mythology. Still painting Gods and Monsters after all these years.

“Asterion, the Minotaur”

Edition 1 of 1

The Minotaur was a famous monster in Greek Mythology, the son of Queen Pasiphae of Crete and a white bull. His birth name, Asterion, in ancient Greek means ‘starry one’ and suggests a link with the bull constellation Taurus. He was imprisoned in the labyrinth at Crete by King Minos and fed a yearly sacrificial offering of Athenian youths. Eventually, the Minotaur was slain by the Athenian prince Theseus with the help of the KIng’s daughter Ariadne. Digital painting, 4954 x 6000 pixels.

I am Xin, a Chinese American artist. My work probably says something about me and how I see the world. I like to make beautiful things and distort reality a little bit.

The Birth of New Venus

Edition 1 of 1

Like in the famous Renaissance painting by Botticelli, the New Venus is the Goddess of Love and Beauty; she embodies a new hope and a sociocultural shift. The New Venus represents a rebirth of the gender ideology of being a woman; she is fearless and curious, she is not just a statue for idealization or admiration. —Painted in the mid-1480s by Botticelli, commissioned by a member of the Medici family, The Birth of Venus, is one of the most iconic paintings in the history of art. Venus symbolizes an idealized beauty and a religious figure.

The Nymph in Suburbs

Edition 1 of 1

The nymph was reborn in a park away from the skyscrapers. It was dawn just after the rain. Nobody has seen her yet. 1600×2250 px, mp4

Li Boar is an artist and animator from Transylvania, Romania. His work is super detailed and saturated, merging a surreal outlook with cartoony sensibilities, Escheresque impossible geometry and lots of Easter Eggs.

“Carcosa”

Edition 1 of 1

“Carcosa” is my SuperRare genesis piece. It encompasses several of the mainstay influences in my art: surrealism, Escheresque impossible architecture, a preference for super-saturated colorwork, and my passion for weird fiction literature. Carcosa is a fictional city first created by Ambrose Bierce in 1886 and expanded upon by R.W. Chambers in his infamous short story collection “The King In Yellow”. “Along the shore the cloud waves break, The twin suns sink behind the lake, The shadows lengthen In Carcosa. Strange is the night where black stars rise, And strange moons circle through the skies, But stranger still is Lost Carcosa. Songs that the Hyades shall sing, Where flap the tatters of the King, Must die unheard in Dim Carcosa. Song of my soul, my voice is dead, Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed Shall dry and die in Lost Carcosa.”

Artist. World Creator.

“Hustle”

Edition 1 of 1

This piece represents two of the most forceful and dynamic elements of life in New York City, density and motion. New York is an ever-changing, moving, living organism. A tightly packed metropolis filled with millions of moving parts, each with its own story. During this trip, I felt a sudden realization of the scope of this city, and coming from an upbringing in Utah I found the contrast fascinating. This piece is my effort in capturing the density and motion of New York City; a place that was instrumental in broadening my perspective of the world, and driving my growth as a photographer.

British artist, photographer and director, known for his cinematic style and the narrative themes woven throughout his work. Finn’s images have earned him a loyal following and clients such as Apple, Cartier, Tesla, Audi and Omega. Finn has published two best-selling books on photography (available in 11 foreign language editions), and his work has been featured by many notable publications such as The Guardian, Wired Magazine & Forbes.

“The Whale’s Mouth”

Edition 1 of 1

“The Whale’s Mouth” is the first piece in my “Atmøs” NFT collection. This is a series celebrating the elements in full flow. How small we all are in comparison. I love nothing more than capturing their unrestrained might at work. This particular piece depicts a rare “Whale’s Mouth” cloud formation/thunderstorm that threw lightning bolts, fierce winds, tornadoes, and hailstones the size of tennis balls across the East Coast of the US in 2018. One of nature’s most alarming and astonishing phenomena, the shelf cloud looming over Manhattan, is often referred to as a ‘whale’s mouth’ since the dark and ribbed formations give the impression of being consumed by a giant whale. Regarded as one of the most severe weather events on record to pass through the Hudson Valley, I wanted this NFT to expand on the story depicted in the image. Using the token itself as a canvas, I have inscribed details associated with the storm (pooled from news area weather reports from the area) into the metadata. This link that NFT’s provide, a blend between art and technology, forms a unique record of a rare atmospheric event now immortalised on the blockchain.

I’ve been drawing lines in NYC for nearly 25 years ..

My practice encourages the viewer to turn their mind from the fragility of the material world, towards a contemplation of something more stable and infinite. I depict a visual realm at once fantastical, foreign and strangely familiar. Three-dimensional, dreamscapes composed of fractal shapes and ordered geometric patterns are populated by extra-terrestrial forms, anthropomorphic machines and plant-life moving purposefully throughout spaces that operate as portals into the psychological.

“Mung-wok”

Edition 1 of 1

Mung-wok is a multi-lingual elf, capable of morphing into any living creature he looks at. He is a friend to all, including those he is yet to meet. To them he appears as one of their own. He spends most of his time investigating the natural landscape meeting and helping all the wonderful species he encounters. When the sun begins to set you can hear him singing his name to the other animals, they find this incredibly soothing. The tone of his voice magically synchronises with the warm glow from the sun, allowing them the rest they need. These ancient psychedelic creatures are expert healers, capable of manipulating reality. They stumbled across our dimension a few millennia ago, bringing wisdom and mischief along with an infinite supply of laughter. They harnessed the magical energies of the invisible realm in order to manifest themselves amongst us. Using complex mystical powers to intricately intertwine and sew their sacred intelligence into the fabric of our lives. They teach through plants and playful metaphors, showing us how to realign with the natural flow of the multiverse.
