An artist out of Philadelphia, AJ Fosik creates amazing animal sculptures out of wood, and very colorful paintings. His work features elements that you are no doubt familiar with, but pushes them in a direction that makes these works serious eye candy such as the print shown. The print is a 3 color silkscreen and is limited to only 75. You can see some of the elements he uses in his sculptural work, such as the patterns seen throughout the print.

Yoskay Yamamoto "Nightmare of a Daydreamer"

Originally from Japan, Yoskay now lives in California. He is a self-trained artist, with a style that is a fusion of urban culture of the west and iconic Japanese elements. He currently has a solo show going on at the Project Gallery in LA. This print is from that solo show, and these are what is left over. The print is on Somerset paper, and is limited to only 25.

Justin Kamerer "BlackMetal Beethoven"

The artist known as Angryblue is back on the Art Sale with a new screenprint, this one is seriously killer. A portrait of Beethoven with Blackmetal face paint in the colors of the Joker, how cool is that? I really dig the whole concept and execution of this print. The print is a 6 color screenprint, with metallic purple and metallic red inks. It's a great size at 18" x 24" and it's limited to 75.

Rick Reese "Creatures of the Sea"

Another artist out of California, Rick Reese started out in the comic and toy industry. His work is a collage of things that influence him, such as comic art, graffiti, skate culture and 50's illustration. This is another print from the 50 for $50 from Slingshot press.

Justin Kamerer "Dead Milkman"

Another one from Angryblue. He said he didn't have any skull based prints, so he just whipped this one up. It's a killer looking screenprint. It's 4 colors with metallic blue used in it. It's limited to only 75, it's also 18" x 24" which is really surprising seeing as how this print is only $25! That is super cheap for a print this big, and this cool looking.
