new to me … a Detroit gallery and graffiti artist:
Tristan Eaton with Contra projects – WOW an amazing large scale piece (below)

Born in Los Angeles in 1978, Tristan began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscape wherever he lived, including London, Detroit and New York. Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher Price at 18 years old and has since become a driving force in the world of ‘Designer Toys ‘. As a creative leader in the world of advertising, Eaton regularly consults such brands as Hasbro, Pepsi and Nike on many creative projects that span the globe and cross all mediums.

Jordan Eagles - paints with blood! The color and dimension of these works are amazing!
For over a decade, Jordan Eagles has been using and preserving blood in his multi-dimensional works as a method to explore themes of regeneration and the metaphysical connections between body, spirit and nature. Eagles permanently preserves the blood on clear and white Plexiglas within layers of resin, suspending the organic medium's fluid forms under the resin's glass-like surface. His work is a dynamic wash of burgundy, crimson, ruby's - commingling with near blacks, and rust colors forming a rich vibrant surface that glows with energy. Now mixing his medium with copper, Jordan creates an effect that is not unlike erupting molten lava – a sparkling geology of vibrant colors and seemingly prehistoric textures that range from fiery orange to deep crimson – revealing as much about life as about death.

You have to look close and careful – some of the treasures are small!
