while looking through my newest juxtapoz magazine, it was nice to find some actual good art... i found it in the add for the corey helford gallery (thank you!) in the form of sylvia ji.
ji's art is brimming with history. you can easily see the influence of both alfonse mucha's art nouveau, maxfield parrish's illustrations, and the art of spain and the day of the dead.
they are haunting and beautiful.
