About the Designer Studio:
”We are a young South African duo inspired by the grit and grime of the London streets. An inspiration that has led us down a path of art, skulls and dark undertones. We are obsessed with what lies beneath, the tainted side – the unseen but only ever imagined. We are a collaboration of two restless and exploratory minds and Mr Four Fingers is our representative. Together we share art in the hope to infiltrate every home in the world.” mrfourfingers.com
”The idea of this series was inspired by Necrophobia, or someone’s fear of death as well as anything that is associated with it (coffins, skulls, tombstones). Although it is a part of life and is something all us will end up with, there’s this huge fear and denial of acceptance.The project revolved around this idea, creating illustrations designed heavily with florals and vibrant colors to reflect a slightly brighter mood to the drawings or the whole composition. All illustrations were hand-drawn and painted a bit with watercolor before a few editing in Photoshop.” Daryl Feril

Terrence Payne’s archetypal oil pastel portraits combine narrative elements, refined organic forms, along with delicate and bold lines to suggest movement and evolution in his subject’s character. The earnest beauty ensuing from the clumsy actions of his subjects as they stumble through life in pursuit of their ideal existence inspire him. Whether or not they ever reach their prescribed potential is irrelevant to Terrence, it is the fleeting and universal experiences that happen along the way, which truly define their humanity.

Celebrated fetish artist Brian M. Viveros is internationally embraced for his erotic paintings of doe-eyed beauties with Marlboros dangling seductively from their lips and has also recently been utilizing the medium of film to capture the dark and evocative debris that radiates from his mind. His paintings are a drunken mix of oil, airbrush, acrylic, and ink. In his work Viveros shines a light on his own inner world and society at large and aims to captivate even the most jaded eyes.
Viveros’ recognition accelerated with his participation in ‘The Art of Porn’ exhibition held in Switzerland (1997), where he exhibited alongside H.R. Giger. Since then Viveros’ work has been exhibited extensively in North America and Europe in numerous gallery shows and at Aqua Art Miami (2009) and GenArt’s Vanguard Fair (2008). His work has also been featured in numerous books including Les Barany’s ‘Carnivora: The Dark Art Of Automobiles’, Harry Saylor and Carolyn Frisch’s ‘Edgy Cute: From Neo-Pop to Low Brow and Back Again’, Matt Jordan’s ‘Weirdo Noir’, and Erotic Signature’s ‘The World’s Greatest Erotic Art of Today – Vol. 1 and Vol. II’.?
His work has also been featured in the pages of Juxtapoz (no. 118), Secret Magazine, In the Flesh, Skin Two, Drawing Blood, Darks Art, Joia Magazine, Tattoo Extreme, XFUNS Magazine, Let’s Motive, Truce, Digital Temple, Riviera Magazine, Uce Magazine, Ego Magazine, Real Detroit Weekly, .ISM Quarterly, Tattoo Society, Dark Art’s Parlour Magazine, Revolution Art, Iniciativa Colectiva, Fetish Magazine, and was also recently featured on the TV show ‘LA Ink’ (where artist Nikko Hurtado tattooed one of Viveros’ paintings onto a client).?
Viveros made his directing debut in 2005 with his quietly eerie, boldly stylized short film Dislandia, a psycho-drama revolving around a young girl who exists in a desolate world full of dreamlike images that range from bizarre to symbolic and erotic. Southern, his latest surreal film, returns cinema to the unclean. Southern is an experience of primordial sights, sounds, and sentiment, blanketed by a fog of troubling eroticism and violence. Viveros was also recently featured on the Sundance Channel’s ‘Pleasure for Sale’ where they featured a behind the scenes look at the artist and the dislandic crew that helped him to create his film Southern. brianmviveros.com
Born in Barcelona in 1973, Berto Martínez is known for his photo-realistic style. His aquarelle illustrations are showing a wide range of interests, from portraits, lifestyle, art, cinema, and fashion to social issues or interior design. Martínez is currently based in his city’s Eixample district, his favorite as he can live and work surrounded by impressive modernist buildings.
As a child, he loved illustration because it is a powerful way of communicating as well as one of the most honest resources for the artistic expression. Today, it’s a vocational affair. Martínez has not only learnt his skills from the lessons at the Llotja (arts and crafts school), where he specialized in mural painting and illustration, but he also has a strong sense of auto didacticism in many ways so as to reach his goals -his most important one being searching for the image’s function in order to apply it on different media, formats and supports.
Martínez works to find the cohesion between text and illustration through realistic figuration and psychological portrait: to create images that tell a story.
