We begin our 28th volume of Hi-Fructose with the evocative graphic paintings of Sachin Teng, and then discover the site-specific paintings of Rotterdam’s Daan Botlek until we get absorbed into the patterns of Alison Blickle’s figurative paintings. This is followed by the provocative tapestried sculptures of Frédérique Morrel.
In this issue we also present a beautiful 16-page Hi-Fructose Sketchbook insert which explores the brilliant works on paper of Mark Ryden, for Ryden's The Gay 90s show in a way that only print can. Ryden's "Pink Lincoln" is also on this issue's cover!
Next we delve into the biosphere city paintings of Japanese artist Masakatsu Sashie, then we dive into the infectious drawings of mcbess, then a feature on the exacting and skewed photo collage work of Lola Dupre. We dissect anatomy on the sides of buildings with Austrian street artist Nychos, then we end our issue with renowned Pop Surrealist painter Sas Christian and reviews on the new Liz McGrath book and more!
