Camilla d'Errico

Canadian visual artist Camilla d’Errico has a solo exhibiton coming to the Mondo Bizzarro Gallery in Rome this week. Although she’s Italo-Canadian by birth, her work is widely influenced by the Japanese manga culture. She currently uses her paints to construct comic books and individual paintings. Her work stays true to the Japanese manga art form as her characters have the wide eyes and innocent demeanor we all are familiar with. The paintings featured in Codice d’Errico are for sale.

Matt Logue Empty LA

It’s quite difficult to picture any major US city completely deserted, but somehow photographer Matt Logue was able to capture such an unimaginable sight on film. Empty LA is a series of images featuring the City of Angels void of any type of human life. Creepy huh? No matter of eerie it may seem to image the city without a human presence, the photographs are beautiful. Actually, I like the city better without all the traffic. The images are available for purchase in book form on the Empty LA website.
