Stacey Rozich

Record art, I find, is often a handy gateway to find decent more obscure artists, and Earth's 2011 record 'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light' artwork is no exception. Stacey Rozich's fantastic folk art is so damn eye-catching, the stripes, the waves, the blocks of vibrant colour. It's alluring art to say the least.

In the past few years I've grown to be a fan of Japanese art, to say it hasn't had a huge influence on modern art, especially western, is an understatement, check out Japonism. Stacey Rozich shows great appreciation of the characteristics that made up Japanese art: "the lack of perspective and shadow, the flat areas of strong color, the compositional freedom in placing the subject off-centre".

I do urge you to check out Stacey Rozich's portfolio it's more of the same, and it's excellent: here.

If your interest is piqued, Earth sound like a Spaghetti Western, check them: here.


  1. I do admit...i like this work.. there is something quite cute and sweet about it!! very good sir..very good!

  2. I toned down the more academic formality too! :)

    I do love the mythological beasts she creates, as you say, in another style they'd appear viscous and scary, whereas with the bold colours and straights edges they are more cute and sweet.

  3. yes very good sir! very good! xxx
