  • The Blue Collection by Tomasz Mrozkiewicz with 3 pieces, 12 editions each

The Blue Collection is a mixed media digital series of ethereal portraits made by Tomasz Mro. The artist used a combination of watercolor and ink textures on top of his cross-hatched lineart style to give an abstract element to each piece. A minimalistic blue color palette with his magenta bonds the whole collection as well as feelings of sorrow and despair in each of the characters, a theme Tomasz Mro likes to explore in his portraiture work.

  • Jokes by Hamm with 5 pieces, 5 editions each with unique edition number

On December 26, 2011. Hamm drew a cartoon on a napkin and posted it. He did that every day after ten years. The joke is a collection of 100 single panel cartoons or “Jokes’’ from a decade of work. The first ve of which are being released with FM Gallery. The following 95 will vary in edition and platform and medium. On Dec 26th, 2024 the 100th The joke will be awarded to the wallet holding the most “Jokes”.

3D2D Printer

Joke 25 was conceived in 2018 after too many articles about the new wave of 3d printed meat and a fever dream about Star Trek Replicators. That day I happened upon a person wearing a Chive Bill Murry T-shirt where he adorns a pair of 3D Glasses.

Escape

The Ocean is a prison for boats and Lighthouses are guards…Joke 93

Lookin’ Sharp

I read about a guy in Brooklyn claiming he was an Heirloom pencil sharpener or some shit like that. It made me laugh that there would be more than one way to sharpen a pencil. I don’t think that there is.

Shade

Joke 37 is the only joke from this release I would claim as “art”. I took a cartoon Idea ripped from a Ry Cooder Album cover and made it a bit tripping and cosmic. This is a Cartoonists’s Idea of art.

Waiting

Joke 82 really represents the psyche’s struggle with mortality and the ever-present change that is humanity. Oh, Get over yourself. The rabbit brought a little table. This cartoon is insane. No- one reads these descriptions.

  • God’s of RGB by Baugasm, 2 pieces, 10 editions each

In this collection of Artworks, Vasjen aka Baugasm sees this portraits and the gods of colors and gradients. Each God has a color which represents their dominating colors, and waht they stand for. Some are responsible for the gradients of all artists, and color combinations. These gods bring joy and guidance to every artist and creator.

God 389

In this artwork created by Vasjen (Baugasm), is claiming it’s confidence and determination. Blue color represents both sky and sea, and is associated with freedom, which our God owns.

God 432

“God 432” appears more glorious than ever in this Baugasm creation. Our 432 keeps the head up and never loses the radiance. It is the Guardian of all creations.

  • Pop Culture Portraits for Rolling Stone Magazine by Jason Seiler with 3 pieces, 8 editions each

Jason Seiler is known for his painted covers for publications such as Time magazine, Rolling Stone, MAD, The New Yorker and more. This is a collection of three paintings that were painted for the music review section in Rolling Stone magazine, celebrating the pop stars latest album.

Kanye West Rolling Stone

This is a portrait that I painted of Kanye West for The Music Review section for Rolling Stone magazine. I’m a fan of a lot of Kane’s music, so I knew this was going to be a fun painting to work on. The art direction was the same as it usually is from a Rolling Stone art director. “Have fun and make it look cool.” When painting a musician, I feel that it is really important to listen to their music, so the first thing I did was listen to Kanye’s new album, “Black Skinhead.” Listen to the lyrics, the beats, let it sink in and sync in, really feel it. To me this album was a darker and angry sounding album. One song in particular had dog barking in the background which was really cool, and inspired the overall look and feeling that I wanted to capture in my painting.

Lil Wanye Rolling Stone

This is a portrait that I painted of Lil Wayne for The Music Review section for Rolling Stone magazine. This was my first job for Rolling Stone, which was a big deal for me. I had wanted to work for RS ever since I was a kid, so when I got this commission, I couldn’t wait to get started! Not even 20 minutes after I got off the phone with the art director, I had finished my sketch, and sent it to him. He loved it and the only art direction I got was, “Make it look cool.” The Final painting was due the following day, which was plenty of time for me. I felt confident and excited, so excited that I was working for Rolling Stone magazine! I put on Lil Wayne’s music and got to work! Paced myself and had fun. To this day it is one of my favorite paintings.

Rick Ross Rolling Stone

This is a portrait that I painted of Rick Ross for The Music Review section for Rolling Stone magazine. As an illustrator, I am used to tight deadlines, typically I am given 2 to 3 days tops, from start to finish. This commission was a last minute addition in the line up for the music reviews and they needed to find someone who could pull off a very quick turnaround, so they called me. It was by far the most insane turnaround of my career. I was called on a Thursday evening, and the final art was due the following day by 6 PM. I woke up early to work on the sketch, sketch, and once approved I paint nonstop until it’s finished. My focus was first and foremost on capturing a strong and accurate likeness, but equally important was creating a piece of art that pops, and looks cool, aesthetically pleasing to both my client and ultimately the viewer. I really enjoyed the challenge of this painting the short turnaround forced me to work more loose and expressive which organically gives this piece so much more life and character.

  • IYAMA by Manzel Bowman with 4 pieces, 12 editions each

This experimental series builds a surreal link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on abstract questions that determine the background of our existence. Through a singular approach of using transcendental figures and water and light, a broad spectrum of emotion is achieved.

Ebb
Fullbring

This is ultimate form of enlightenment in which one seeks. This deity in meditative position represents the point in which the manifestation of thoughts and idea become something tangible. As we are among the stars, we are also created from them in a cosmic exchange.

Hyperlight

With the focal point given the light with the darkness with his chest, this piece represents the finding the strength within oneself. To find the strength with yourself is the first step to true freedom.

The Source

Being of a divine nature the woman supports man upon her pyramid, bestowed upon him if only as a gift. Given the chance of life upon this platform, man then looks upon her if only to gaze at her beauty.

  • Riddle of the Sphinx by Patton Ado with 5 fragments, 5 editions each

The title for this piece is a reference to a part of a story from Greek Mythology, where visitors to the paradise city of Thebes would be asked to answer the “riddle of the sphinx” or be denied entry; the riddle has been historically interpreted in two ways.

The first and more common: What walks on three legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?

The second, and much rarer: There are two sisters: one gives birth to the other, and she, in turn, gives birth to the first. Who are the two sisters?

This piece is intended as an overall reflection on the intersection between individuals and society throughout history. As I learn about the world, I often ask myself how we arrived at this seemingly inevitable despotic junction in history, and I have been plagued by the question, or the riddle, of who to blame, society or the individual? Both? Neither? I do not claim to have found the answer in these works or otherwise; rather my aim is to ask the question.

The story begins in the upper sections of this painting. Pictured are: Charon, the ferryman to Hell, Kal-el being rocketed away from Krypton, a ship of men and women, Moses and the burning bush, Pandora’s box, Narcissus and his reflection, Prometheus with a crow eating at his flesh, Orpheus, chimpanzees in the wild, early homo sapiens in a cave-dwelling. In the middle section of the painting begins a band of communication that stretches across all five panels; pictured here are neurotransmitters intersecting with wild fungal pathways. Around this are pictured: early Incan and Mesopotamian farmers, two pairs of men and women, and Dolores and the Man in Black venturing through the desert in Westworld. Atop the chaotic field of images are a set of spiraling stairs; as babies carrying a red, white, and blue flag ascends, a set of Indigenous riders fall below.

In the upper section of the second panel, a great Metropolis is pictured, strewn with common superheroes: Rorschach, Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, and Superman and Lois Lane in the embrace. Behind them is the Planet Apokolips and a red, white, and blue Darkseid. A baby plays to the side. In the middle section, the band of communication evolves, and ‘intellect’ begins, the roots of the Metropolis are clung to by a Religious Zealot, a Laborer, and a Soldier. In the lower section, reality looms. Pictured are: steel mills and scenes of industry, early philosophers studying their books, a set of teachers with their pupils, a pair of hands holding a bag of drugs, Billie Holiday, and a Cuban Refugee ship and the raft from Lost (2004 ABC Show) floating in the sea. To the side is a young Black baby, with waves washing towards her. Although upside down to the viewer, she is right-side up from her perspective and only appears upside down from the perspective of the white baby above her, playing with toys. Behind them, both is the beginning of a band of images representing culture and its evolution that will stretch for the next two panels.

Throughout the middle panel, the two intersecting bands of images, representing communication, intellect, and culture, collide. Out of the water splashing across all five panels emerges a man.

In the upper section of the painting are references to American protests of the past and present, above a chaotic field of pop culture references. The bottom of the painting depicts the ruins of civilizations past and present. Across the middle section of the painting continues the bands of communication and culture.

In the upper section of the painting is a future society, a potential rebirth of humankind and our cultures. Across the middle section of the painting, the band of communication from earlier panels morphs and evolves as it ends. At the lower portion of the panel is the same man seen growing in each.
