When we stumbled upon the work of Florida-based painter Matthew Cornell, we were really taken with his uncanny ability to paint water so realistically. But as we delved deeper into Cornell’s body of work, particularly his series entitled Pilgrimage, we realized there was much more to this talented artist. Sure, he has tremendous skill for painting in a realistic fashion, but there’s an emotional connection that one rarely captures in hyperrealism (some examples here and here and here). There’s something ethereal about Cornell’s work that transcends simply replicating a scene so well that it could be mistaken for a photograph. Perhaps it’s his own connection that comes shining through, but Cornell has a way of conveying real emotion with the notable absence of people. And we imagine this connection is even greater when viewing his extraordinary work in person. Don’t miss the trailer below to a solo exhibition last year.

French designers Romain Bourdieux and Thomas Pomarelle teamed up to create this killer series of posters. They work so well for many reasons… sense of color is fantastic, typography, composition, illustration are all really on-point. And as if the posters themselves aren’t enough, they took it to the next level with a “teaser trailer”, bringing the illustrations to life with motion. Enviable talent here… really well done.
