Andreas Gursky
Andreas Gurskey makes large-scale, colour photographs distinctive for their incisive and critical look at the effect of capitalism and globalisation on contemporary life. I love his use of pattern & colour. Seeing them here doesn't really do the photographs any justice as when seem full scale in a gallery Gurskey's work is truly superb.

ZebraI happened upon this great drawing of a zebra by Scottish poet, songwriter & humorist Ivor Cutler (1923 - 2006). Among his many talents Ivor also wrote & illustrated many childrens books in the 80s.

Jon Klassen
I'm absolutely loving the work of Canadian born Jon Klassen, his simplistic scenic artworks contain so much atmosphere & his hints at narrative make for some very stunning images.I love the texture & subtle details. Great use of subtle colour too! See more of Jon's fantastic work at Burst of Beaden.
