ART: The incredible vision of the Koppenbergs
a little over a year ago, through methods i won't detail now, and coming with an amazing backstory it would take me days to write, i came to know two young men, twins, Arthur and Oliver Koppenberg, who live south of town here. besides the fact that they have fascinating stories, i first became enchanted by their poetry and writings, which they had only been at a few months at the time. even newer were their attempts at art -- and yet you would never have guessed that they were in fact 'new' at either venture. i don't know which i'd rate them better at -- art or writing -- but they clearly excel at both. i struggle wondering about their future as they haven't a clear path to anywhere right now. in the meantime i am trying to expose them to as much as i can, and to expose the world to them.
so, with that in mind, here are some digital copies of some of their art, a few of these have been submitted to an art contest. clicking on the picture will take you to a high-res version.
if you want more of a taste of that they can do, check out Arthur at http://tensemonkey.deviantart.com, and Oliver at http://brokenheartsbleeding.deviantart.com.
