When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Don Simon

He calls his work Unnaturalism. I like that. Basically he's juxtaposing wildlife with modern industrial human environments in a way that seems surreal until we realize that wildlife is constantly juxtaposed with modern industrial human environments in a way that is just depressing. That being said, these selections are not an overall representation of his work. I just think these undersea city scenes are too cool, though the crocs and tires may get closer to his overall point.
