Paul, a 25-year-old product designer, came up with a brilliant idea. He invented the “Pfandring” that is a so-called “deposit ring”.
There are still people who rely on the extra bit of cash they get by collecting discarded deposit bottles from public trash cans. Paul Ketz’s creative invention makes it easier for collectors to reach the bottles, that used to be thrown in the litter.

“The variety of animals and odd creatures I have created over the years began to ask where do we come from, what is our story?”
His work has been described as “a satirical look at the impact urban sprawl has on the environment and surmises, with the aid of scientific slices and core samples, what could happen if we continue to infiltrate and encroach on our rural surroundings.”
“One thing is clear, the world has changed…“. And so did Josh Keyes’ illustrations.
They once were reminiscent of the diagrammatic representation found in scientific textbook illustrations that often express through a detached and clinical viewpoint of an empirical representation of the natural world.
The apocalyptic taste, the satirical look is not gone, but its simple illustration is replaced by more nature, more landscape, more surrounding.
The happenings now take place in the world we think to know. The protagonists in this illustrations move more freely through the woods, the streets and the sky. The sculpturesqueness and the simplicity change to complexity.
The Old Ones is the first installment of The Far Side of the World.

Tri Princezne V Belasej Skale (Bratislava: Mladé letá, 1972), owns the title of being the “most disturbing children’s book of all time.” It has about ten full-color plates and countless black/white/green illustrations.
A life in which I have yet to learn and give so much.
This is why none of my paintings carry a certain message or political statement.
The sole purpose of my work is to tempt people to dream.
There is nothing I love more than to move my audience to ecstasy by allowing them a peek into my fantasy.
This is why I gladly invite you all to take a look at my gallery.
‘Welcome to my world!’
“Can you combine Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Hello Kitty?
Cesar Santos can.” – Juxtapoz
Cesar Santos was born in 1982.
He studied at Miami Dade College, then attended the New World School of the Arts.
He then completed the “Fundamental Program in Drawing and Painting” at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence.
Santos combines both, classical and modern interpretations, within one painting.
From Renaissance to Modernism, his creations are harmonic, provocative and dramatic at the same time.
“In a suggestive and theatrical way I seek to raise questions, to entice one to probe the imagery that I present and attempt to decipher its meaning.”
Inspired by the light and composition of Old Masters paintings, but concerning 21st-century British society, Mitch Griffiths oil paintings are a symbolic statement for the “transient and throwaway nature” of contemporary culture.
Born in Nuneaton in 1971, his passion for drawing came early. His Diploma in Graphic Design and his Higher National Diploma in Illustration show his abnormal talent and honed his abilities to a level where he could replicate and then advance creatively from his models.
While his artistic language owes a debt to the past, the paintings content addresses the issues of the twenty-first century. “Large, complex canvases, packed with detail, expose the immoralities and pretences of our time”.
“However, their symbolism reflects a modern quest for redemption from the overriding self-obsession and consumerism of contemporary society, with its vanity and greed, addictions and needless suffering.” – www.mitchgriffiths.com
I find power and strength in everything I love.
My energy is your weakness and my weakness, too.
I talked to you and to the stars when everything was simple,
and now I talk just to my self: Love was just too simple.
