Yuta Toyoi: 8-Bit Tokyo
Yuta Toyoi
8-Bit Tokyo
Tokyo is at its most beautiful especially on a sunny, cloudless spring day. But often the true wonders of Japan's megametropolis unfold only when it rains, snows, or complete darkness descends upon the land and all manner of garish neon lights adorn the large and small streets of Shibuya, Akihabara, and Harajuku. Japanese illustrator and pixel art artist Yuta Toyoi appreciates this special beauty and tells the small and big stories of the people living in Tokyo in his animated 8-bit works. A bumpy ride on the crowded subway, the…

Bravo Ko: Taiwan's Young Rebels
Bravo Ko
Taiwan's Young Rebels
After I came across the magnificent photographs of Chih Hsien Chen from Taiwan some time ago, I now became aware of Bravo Ko, who not only lives in the same country and city but also acts in the same circle of friends. Having such great companions who do nothing else but immortalize their generation with powerful images is truly amazing. Whenever I publish such photos on AMY&PINK, and I have been doing so for years, critics always start complaining that it's not real art at all. It's just some skillless hipster making pictur…

Ben Evans: Wonderful Weed
Ben Evans
Wonderful Weed
When he was younger, artist Ben Evans, who goes by Ben is Right on the Internet, spent a lot of time in the smoked-up rooms of his stoner buddies and girlfriends. So it's no wonder that all this weed glorification made quite an impression on him, and he made weed the main component of his illustrations. Ben immortalizes in colorful pictures how the people around him smoke themselves to death, throw themselves on cornflakes, burgers, and coke after a skillful smoking session, and how they even use the fragrant wonder herb to have…

Boris Leist
World of Knights and Zombies
I'm with you. I really am. This world we live in right now is boring. Extremely boring. You have your job, your wife, your kids, your video games, your fast food. But deep in your heart, you want to have an adventure. Fight for something you really love. Discover new galaxies, new universes. Find gold, find monsters, find honor. I'm with you. I really am. Photographer Boris Leist studied social science and German studies and now follows people who are part of the global live role-playing movement. What is this now, you may be as…

A Japanese Image: Hisatomi Tadahiko's World
A Japanese Image
Hisatomi Tadahiko's World
Not only is Japan an ultra-modern country constantly in conflict with its roots, one of its biggest problems has been making headlines for years, all over the world, because the nation's young people love everything but sex. The locals call it celibacy syndrome, the massive rejection of sexual intercourse. Hisatomi Tadahiko is a young photographer from Tokyo who accompanies at least one side of this new generation. Some of her photos are titled A Japanese Image. And in them, Hisatomi gives us intimate glimpses into the lives of…

Andrew Miksys: Disco in Lithuania
Andrew Miksys
Disco in Lithuania
The Second World War deprived many families of their livelihood. Among them were the grandparents of photographer Andrew Miksys, who fled Lithuania for the USA. Andrew didn't have much to do with his European roots, but that was about to change when he was given a box of old negatives from that lost time by his grandpa. Andrew flew to Lithuania, his homeland he had never known. He ended up at a small disco in an even smaller village. "It's weird showing up alone in this strange place without even knowing anyone," he te…

Curtis Blair: Nordic Girls
Curtis Blair
Nordic Girls
Swedish people are among the most beautiful and desirable beings in the world. This fact is known in both hemispheres. The boys are muscular, grinning, blond-headed and blessed with Emil Svensson's charm, the girls are tall, slender, with golden hair and a face that makes angels look down in disgust. Cliché and reality are inseparably united in the desire for perfection. British artist Curtis Blair seems to love not only analog photography, but also, like me, girls from the far north. Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, a bit of E…

Valerie Phillips: Another Girl Another Planet
Valerie Phillips
Another Girl Another Planet
Although I'm a girl myself, I can't get enough of peeking into other and somehow strangely mysterious lives of my own kind. Especially into those of the very creative and alternative and special ones, the ones who, by their very existence, make this planet a better one. Other girls inspire me more than anything else in this world. Valerie Phillips is not only a very talanted photographer but also someone who pretty much only shoots what I like to look at. Primarily girls being girls. They laugh and they dance and they're not ash…
