Like Minded Studio‘s style has been seen throughout the design industry including clothing brands, magazine covers, and studio television producers.
It’s obvious that sharp blades have carved canyons through the mind of New York artist Gavin Kenyon. His axes, swords, and knives have a way of taking on strangely organic characteristics, and I really like how the pieces attack the space where they are installed. The world of metal sculpture can be dominated by machismo, so I find it interesting that these sculptures appear dangerous and destructive, while being somewhat goofy at the same time.
Ok, here’s a little known fact about yours truly… I am a total sports nerd. Deep down, I’ve always wanted to be a baseball player, so of course I got really excited when I saw these ‘text illustrations’ by Philadelphia artist Dan Duffy. If you didn’t already notice, his images are comprised of the words and statistics of the subjects – the Harry Kalas tribute is made up of the Hall of Famer’s greatest and most memorable calls during his almost 40 years of play-by-play commentating for the Philadelphia Phillies, and there’s another with the scores from every game of the 2008 Phillies world championship season. I’ll understand if the sports references get lost on you, but make sure to look after the jump for the illustrations of Barack Obama (text from his inaugural address), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr (“I Have A Dream” speech), and Abraham Lincoln (second inaugural address).
