Pittura magazine recently released their Summer issue. If you recall, their first issue launched earlier this year and focused on beautiful Ceilings. This issue was all about canvas works, mixed media, finish recipes, fantastic products and of course, gorgeous decorative painting.

The cover story is on Chicago-based artist Jason Brammer. I wrote the profile on Jason and it was a pleasure to speak with him in person — he was very cool, laid-back and had a fascinating background. He currently has a showing of his latest series, Futura Obscura, at the Jackson Junge Gallery. The Pittura article has a link to a very cool video showcasing the exhibition. It truly shows you how amazing the textures on the pieces are as well as the finesse displayed in his artistry.
Jason has considerable mural skills — you can see more of his beautiful work on his studio website. Here is a close-up detail of an underwater mural, Into the Deep, at a private residence. That link will take you to a full post on this commission on his blog, Brammer Arts.
The cover story has more images of his incredible works as well enlightening information on his process and inspirations. He also has very useful guidance to impart to aspiring canvas and mixed media artists.
Directors Mindy Harrell and Tamra Cook put together a fantastic second outing — I hope you enjoy the article and the Summer issue! There’s so much yummy information and inspiration in there. Be sure to look out for an article by Fauxology contributor Dana Tucker wherein she writes about maximizing Google Places for your business. Also, there is a Hidden Picture game from Meoded Paint that you can participate in — looks like a very cool prize. First one in wins it! Have a great day, dear Readers!
