Big fan of these paintings by Phil Ashcroft

The unknown is a space at once fascinating and fearful by mankind’s technological advances and the romantic notion that there still lies undiscovered elements to the world in which we live. A derelict hospital, oil depots, nuclear power stations, the abominable snowman; collectively these semi-surreal settings and cartoon-like motifs appear as mysterious manifestations, phenomena both real and imagined. link

Have you ever heard of David Schnell? I saw one of his paintings in the Denver MoMA, titled “Aussicht”. For whatever reason seeing this post reminded me of David Schnell.

Really dope. Love the colors and graphic style. Sort of reminds me of Conor Harrington’s work, who’s also definitely worth checking out.
