'Gallium Cavern' 🌚
Magnetiphants use their trunktectors to locate ferrofluid wells for sustenance, and draw the liquid in with their tusks. But when boredom ensues, the rare gallium puddles are a welcome, delectible treat.

The creatures of the dark rest comfortably in my warm waters. For the light permeates my body so beautifully. Such magic, when you let the ocean carve through your being and reveal a chest full of pearls. 🌊🌺👾✨ Prints will be available soon 😊
“Become” oil on canvas, 2018
Oh, finally, a brand new oil painting. For this piece I used Lana Del Rey’s lovely face as my muse. I am very proud of how much I have accomplished and how much my skills have developed; this piece was a blast to work on.
I also uploaded a brand new YouTube video where you can and watch me actually paint this piece and hear my thought process behind it! ▶️ YouTube.com/ValaethArtist (🔗 in bio)

When I look in your eyes and you're looking back in mine, everything feels not quite normal. Because I feel stronger and weaker at the same time. I feel excited and, at the same time, terrified. The truth is, I don't know what I feel, except I know what kind of man I want to be -Peter Parker
An additional part from the interview mentioned earlier with @quintanarte
Los Angeles based artist Dan Quintana creates intimate and dichotomous portraits laced with surrealistic tendencies and undertones of echoing darknesses. Confrontational and deep gazes project outward from each oil painting, breathing out life and a strong sensation of omniscience. A commingling of planes in each painting reveals the multi-layer, complex, inner selves of his sitters. Dualistic elements found in each of these planes or layers serve to reflect all that makes up the human psyche; the coexistence of such dualities and how as a whole, they make up the complete mortal soul. In this new body of work, poisonous flowers accompany each portrait, reverberating the contrariety of the artist’s aesthetics. Similar in nature to Quintana’s quintessential deities, these flowers appear both beautiful and inviting, yet something darker awaits beneath the surface. Through his heavy use of symbols, contrasting colors and varying shades of light, the viewer is beckoned with curiosity and wonderment. How deep one wishes to penetrate is the ultimate reflection of their own variegated existence.

Here are some artists I've recently covered on the @hifructosemag
blog. All tagged, except for the last drawing, by the incredibly patient Mikiko Kumazawa. (First piece is a blend of embroidery and photography, by the way.)
