My Man of the Moment : HOLLIS BROWN THORNTON. (USA, b.1976) 

I could spend hours and possibly even days looking at this artist's work. 
You can see more either HERE or HERE.

'Dealing with themes of memory and perception, Thornton uses modern cultural artifacts ranging from family photos to pop culture imagery in order to illustrate the modern relevance of these things from the past. In the acrylic paintings, pigment transfers, and marker drawings, the use of erase face, limbo lines, outdated media, and wallpaper patterns all play key roles in uniting the fleeting present to a lingering past. Thornton currently works in a warehouse studio in Aiken, South Carolina'.
