amy ruppel

I've been aware of amy ruppel's art for over a year, but I really love her new work! I don't care if it's already been shown off all over the internet, she deserves a bit more space here. Her series Mean Birds is funny shit. She paints all the birds that have ever victimized her or her friends, and calls them names. Sweet revenge! I wish I'd thought of this.




I'm also crushing on her encaustic paintings (etching into black beeswax and painting oil on top) the bison looks too perfect in his frame! love.
