depthCORE is an international art collective which is focused on the creation of modern and abstract art. The collections incorporating design, photography, animation and audio are produced using a combination of digital and analogue media and tools. The collective was established by Justin Maller and Kevin Stacey in 2002, and comprises of artists from all around the world. depthcore was etablish to showcase art which pushes boundaries. In their words “we aim to bring something unique and innovative with every release we put forth, as we illustrate, orchestrate and visually represent the thoughts, hopes and dreams of all corners of the globe.” I only recently came across this collective by chance as a result of following a link from one of the artists I was checking out on DeviantART. Visit depthCORE today and get inspired.

ArtMagick is an online gallery which in their own words is “dedicated to the continual quest of seeking out obscure 19th century artists and long-forgotten paintings showing a “magic world of romance and pictured poetry”.” Much of the art featured is from the Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist movements it also links strongly to Art and crafts from the Vienna Secession. It is a wealth of links and sources for art from this time which happens to be one of my favourites. Visit Artmagick for some excellent info.
