the artist’s name is Sun Ira / Ira Carter and here’s what he has to say ~ ~ ~
Artistic history starts when I was a wee chile and encouraged by my parents. Went off to art school while dinosaurs still roamed the Earth. Became a graphic artist working in the SF Bay area. Got in on the ground floor of the Mac revolution in 1984 and taught myself how to make it do what I wanted. My art practice is informed by Dada and the desire to make confrontational but humorous art that tells truth to power in a world full of consumption, exploitation, and militarism. My hope is that a sense of play and holy foolishness comes across.

HELLO! new work this week [week 5 of ‘Fresh Figs‘] comes from Danai Gkoni 😀 the collage above is called ‘Touristic Season’ and the one below is ‘Storm is Coming’… here’s Danai’s bio ~ ~ ~
Τhe cities I lived in are constant inspirations as spatial and social conditions ~ those images are dystopic and entertaining at the same time. Coming from the field of architecture I’m deeply interested in the dynamics of space and the built environment, the urban lifestyle and its aesthetics, the pleasure of urbanity as a space of togetherness and isolation at the same time- those are the concepts I try to explore as a digital artist.
Danai Gkoni is an architect and digital artist. She has lived, studied and worked in Greece and the Netherlands. During her studies, she developed a keen interest on the contemporary urban condition. With architectural collage as a starting point, since 2013 she is exploring a particular style of digital illustration- narrating surreal and sometimes dystopic urban stories.
