Cristina Guerreiro lives everywhere and nowhere. She split her childhood between Brazil and Portugal, studied in central England, and is now working towards her MFA at the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute. She records her personal memories and movements from each of these spaces in her work. Her transient city scenes and distinct architectural references, belie feelings of dislocation, identity, and urban energy. To create these pieces, Cristina photographs the buildings she wants then draws them with her own distinct style. The colors are inspired by both of her cultures: Brazilian lively music and forms, the vibrant colors and sounds of the Portuguese people, and the quirky skyscrapers of San Francisco. This piece is an impression of the iconic buildings and bridges in downtown SF, many of them just a few blocks away from Cristina's apartment.

In this series, Martyn explores themes of memory and fragility, using strong elements of naturalism. Here, the broken wings of the butterflies demonstrate the delicacy of nature, leading us to question our own finite existence. The vibrant blue plate cont

In Martyn Thompsonâ€™s alien series, these jellyfish are transformed into other worldly creatures, existing as repetitious form in a floating abyss. The series contains a varying palette of blues and grays, recalling the range of tones in the natural sea environment. Interestingly, the form changes very little from image to image, yet the overall feeling the image conveys is quite dramatically different, depending on the color scheme. In this image, the dark, rich blue imparts a certain feeling of depth, as if the viewer is peering into a deep, oceanic world.Â -Luster Fine Art Prints
Looking like an abstract painting, these images are actually shredded billboards found in Panama. When workers shred expired ads what remains is often a beautiful chaos of color, shape, and pattern. Hartman was attracted to the ever-changing shapes, and c
