Ernesto Artillo - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Working primarily in Fashion, Ernesto Artillo is an editorial collagist, as I would like to call him. He transforms high fashion into fractured, distorted portraits, using photography and collage. His work varies from obscure, minimalist collage to more dizzying and surreal landscapes (at times echoing Cubism) with the human body being cut by bold stripes of color and abstract imagery. He has worked with the biggest names in fashion from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Maison Martin Margiela.

art blog - Perttu Saksa - empty kingdom
I was trying to think of something creepier than a small chained up monkey wearing dingy clothes and a dirty doll mask, but I failed to find anything close. Perttu Saksa is a Finnish photographer and visual artist who brings us his newest series, "A Kind of You", where he traveled to Indonesia to take portraits of trained performance monkeys who attempt to act like humans in order to ask for money from bypassers. Haunting, creepy, and cruel are words that come to mind.
