Using black 0.05″ Staedtler liner pens and several month’s time, artist Ben Sack creates these fictional landscapes on a huge scale. The architecture in his work jumps from century to century, from gothic architecture to images of current urban sprawl. Here he explains his ideas on “western antiquity”:

Its this sort of image that I think most people, if not all of society have of western antiquity; stainless marble facades, long triumphal avenues, monuments to glory. In actuality, the cities of the past were far from idealistic by todays standards. Yes there was marble, lots of marble, and monuments galore, however these urban centers were huddled together and unless you were considerably wealthy, life in dreamy antiquity was often a heroic struggle. Though the societies of antiquity were bloody, dirty and corrupt the idea of antiquity has come to represent some resounding ideals in present society; democracy, justice, law and order, balance, symmetry. These ideals are now the foundation stones of our own civilization, a civilization that some distant future will perhaps honor as antiquity.

Sack has a degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University and has since had work numerous solo a group exhibitions. You can view his portfolio here and order prints as well.

Ryan Burdzinski ART

Ryan K. Burdzinski is an Ohio oil painter and graphic designer. He was born in Ravenna, Ohio in 1982, and later returned to the area to study painting at Kent State University. He received His BFA in Painting in 2006.

His original artwork can best be compared to surrealism, due to his use of random elements in his processes, and his application of realistic light to impossible, unworldly objects. Over the years his work has grown more complex and vivid. “With each new painting I attempt something new, something I’ve never tried before.” Ryan stated. “Most importantly, something no one’s ever seen before.”

Burdzinski currently lives in Brunswick, OH where he runs a freelance art and graphic design business. He also maintains an art blog, ryanburdzinski.com/blog, and works on his own series of surrealist oil paintings. View his portfolio at www.ryanburdzinski.com/art
