Ekundayo "Too Much of Anything..."

This L.A. based artist has one of those styles that you can't help but like. So colorful and energetic. He recently had a solo show at the Thinkspace Gallery, and now we get a print from one of those works. This print is a nice 19x24" (image area), giclee on etching paper. It's hand singed, and is also embellished with acrylic, gold leaf and ink. So you know each print of this limited edition of 30 is unique. This print is limited to only 1 per customer.

Skot Olsen "Saint Psilocybe"

An extraordinary artist out of Florida, Skot Olsen's had an amazing show, that unfortunately was caught up in a fire that hit the Harold Golen Gallery this past week . Hopefully some of this work will be salvaged from the damage. From reading Skot's blog he seems to have a great attitude, and even though he is upset like anyone would be, he seems ready to get back to bringing us some amazing art to view. He will have a show at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco Dec. '08. For now, you can head over to his site and grab some prints. Saint Psilocybe and Saint Elyse's Epiphany are all this is left from the fire.

Stella Im Hultberg "Heartbeats"

Another print available from the Thinkspace Gallery, this one from the ever popular Stella Im Hultberg. It's a generous 14x20", giclee on photo rag paper. Hand signed and numbered by the artist, in an edition of 100. Her prints tend to sell out very quickly, so catch these before you have to fight someone on eBay for them. I'm looking forward to seeing some new prints from her latest show at the Lineage Gallery in PA. Her work is really evolving and getting more intense.

Ahren Hertel "On Guard"

Ahren is an a killer artist out of Reno, NV. He recently had a solo show at the Gallery 1988 in L.A. The show is still up if you want to see all of the work, Here. His work is very cohesive, always colorful and filled with some great imagery. And, he rules with oil paint. This print from the show is a lithograph on 10x17" in paper and is embellished with hand applied oil paint. It is limited to only 25.

This duo for the Netherlands always gives us some crazy art to look at, and now Blueflip art gives us a limited print of their work. Every Monday Blueflip Art releases a limited print, and this one is a great print from the Sauerkids. The print is limited to 100, and is 16.5x11.5". As with all of the Sauerkids prints, 10% of each sale will go to the Warchild Organization, an organization devoted to helping children affected by war.

Next week I'll wrap up this year with a Top 10 list.
