Born in Osaka, Japan, Hiro Kurata has continued to craft an intricate story that ties together both Eastern and Western culture. Focusing on surrealistic moments, he illustrates his daily life through sports motif, chairs, and the stability of gentleness. However, the underlying theme of his work is both chaotic and restless. Kurata sums things up best: “Calm days make me sleep and wild days are too chaotic.

3D Floor Art, In Your House | Art World. | Scoop.it

We have seen a good deal of 3D art in the past, a few street pieces that give the illusion of more than meets the eye, mostly constructed with chalk. But, we haven't seen the style and approach applied to the home, and if you got the open floorplan, why not have a little fun with your setup?

Parra "Kind Regrets" @ HVW8, Los Angeles | Art World. | Scoop.it

Parra is known to lovers of his work for the themes and motifs which have become unmistakable and distinctive trademarks of his style. Curved two dimensional modern post - pop  images, highly saturated colors, vibrant typographic hand-drawn letters and worlds inhabited by hybrid, bizarre, surreal characters. Men with bird heads, fleshy and voluptuous women with round sensual bodies, mixed with texts and themes that span from sarcastic and introspective to ironic and bold, all the way to nonsensical.

The idea for this series is about humor, beauty and repulsion. To me, long hair not only looks beautiful, but sometimes it can be very repulsive in particular settings such as hair in the hamburger, egg, wineglass, cigarette, toothpaste and sink. I combine hair and every day objects to evoke different feelings and emotions through a surrealistic approach.' Hong Chun Zhang
