SIMILARITY SATURDAY 5 : CHAD VANGAALEN & FRANCE MIHELIC

Hello folks! Welcome back to SIMILARITY SATURDAY! It’s been a while so I figured we could get back to it with a treat!

Chad VanGaalen
Singer/Songwriter/Visual Artist








France Mihelic
Artist/Illustrator/Puppeteer






Both artists definitely resemble something very organic, with a strong sense of continual growth and mutation, as further illustrated in Chad VanGaalen’s music video for Clinically Dead off of his debut album Infiniheart. They also share a rather similar line quality which lends to exploring the images as landscapes, then later breaking it down into it’s individual characters and objects. It would certainly be safe to say that Chad VanGaalen may have come across France Mihelic’s work at some point in his life/career. Nonetheless both brilliant artists! I’ve been a huge fan of Chad VanGaalen for quite some time now, but I just recently discovered France Mihelic’s work thanks to Aeron at MONSTER BRAINS (check it out)! Also, you can definitely look forward to a post taking a more in depth look at Mihelic’s work in the coming week. Have a great weekend everyone!
