5 More of The Best Modern Day Artists

Updated on January 8, 2016

<< Part 2 <<

This is the final article in this series, to show you who I think are some of the best modern day artists today.

As you already know, I keep the names in alphabetical order, so that you don't assume that I'm playing favorites. But let's get right into it.

Jax Pixeloo

Jax Pixeloo is an American Photoshop artist that is known for taking popular cartoons and bringing them to life through his art.

You can see what I mean in the picture below, on the right. That's one freaky looking plumber, isn't it?

He does photo manipulation and illustration for a living, but tries to create his own art on the side for fun, when he can.

But check out Pixeloo's Blog, to keep up on what new art he's created lately.

Flying V by Loren Kulesus

Loren Kulesus

Loren Kulesus is an industrial designer from New York City, who also dabbles in 3-D modeling.

The designs he comes up with are so unique that you're pretty much sold, once you see it, and then wonder if you can purchase it yourself.

His designs are artistic, but also quite functional.

And I'd love to see all of his concepts actually be produced.

I mean, could you imagine jamming out with the guitar pictured on the right?

Well, check out Loren's Portfolio to keep up on his crazy designs.

Pumpkin Head by Naoto Hattori

Naoto Hattori

Naoto Hattori is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer that pops back and forth between New York and Tokyo.

He likes to take whatever is on his mind, whether good or bad, and turn it into art, to become more aware of his consciousness.

And he really does have a unique style, but I think the oddity of his art is overcome by the softness of his style.

And, if you check out his site below, you'll notice that he seems to enjoy creating his own versions of the Mona Lisa.

Now, I'll admit that some of his creations come out pretty creepy, but most of his art will make you laugh, rather than have a nightmare.

Hey, at least he's willing to share what's on his mind.

But check out Naoto Hattori's Site, to keep up on his creations, and pick up some of his limited edition art in his store, if you'd like.

Robert & Shana Parkeharrison

Robert and Shana Parkeharrison are a married couple, from Massachusetts, who produce some of the most interesting fine art photographs I've ever seen.

Yes, they are two artists, but they are an artistic duo that works together; so, I'm going to count them as one.

The photograph to the right was included in a book that was named one of the top 10 photography books in 2000, by the New York Times.

And, as you can see, their photography will truly make you stop and stare at it for a while, as you try to realize what it is they're trying to show you, with each image.

But head on over to the Parkeharrisons' Site to see more of what I'm talking about.

Graffiti in Guatemala City by Stinkfish

Stinkfish is a graffiti artist from Colombia.

He's got such a unique style, which is full of color and detail.

You can see, from the picture on the right, that he adds in detail where some might see it as unneeded, but you can't argue with that when his style pleases your eyes.

He likes to combine all of what he takes in through his senses, and sprays it on a wall.

Heck, I'd be pretty sad if I saw someone paint over one of his works of art.

I mean, his art can make the ugliest of walls worth looking at again.

But head over to Stinkfish's Blog, to see what new creations he's sprayed out lately.

Who's your favorite artist out of the last 5?

See results

That's it; that's 17 of my favorite artists, who I'm currently into.

My aim was to give you a handful of different artists, with a variety of backgrounds, mediums and styles.

Hopefully I've opened your eyes to at least a little bit of new art.

I feel like, if I have the time to look at art, then I have the time to share it with someone else.

Feel free to share any of your favorite modern day artists in the comment section below!

But WAIT, there's more...

      I picked the married photographers. I love photography-wish I was better at it. I am not bad with a digital camera, but as for real film in a traditional camera, no I am not good at it.
