Though the medium of stereoscopic optics have been blowing minds (and crossing eyes) since the late 1800′s, artist and designer Ryan Colditz takes the media to surprising new ends. Colditz plays with this dazzling visual trope to breath new life (and dimension) to graphic design and photography, creating a startling new aesthetic that literally manages to pop off the page. Beautiful/Decay recently discussed Ryan’s home made 3-D camera, process, inspiration, and beyond- read more after the jump!
David Mascha, an artist based in Vienna, Austria, has been working with different design studios since 2005. He has also done work for international clients, print magazines, fashion and design labels, and books. David has also had work displayed in exhibitions in Asia and Europe. I really like his diverse but defined style. Every piece he does is bold in its own way.
Benoit Lemoine‘s design work has been featured in publications, such as Stereographics, Data Flow, and Tangible. Whether it’s experimenting with tape, collaborating with a friend to feign consciousness, or conveying a designer’s workspace, Lemoine executes it all cleverly!
Enjoy his projects after the jump!
Jochen Schievink has some really neat comics and illustration work. Even though he seems to employ a stream of consciousness method, his work is always pristine and quite charming.
Schievink has appeared in numerous group exhibitions around Germany, and has been featured in publications like Die Zeit and Falter.
Born in Hong Kong, Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung now lives and works in New York. His art is incredibly socially conscious, exploring and excelling in high-definition video animation, video games, net.art, digital graphics, and mixed media installations. Currently in progress is video installation “In GOD We Trust.” He envisions Obama as a reincarnation of seven spiritual leaders and prophets. Far from worshipping Obama, “In GOD We Trust” delves into the hopes and changes the 44th U.S. president promises to deliver–and the obstacles he will encounter along the way.
P.S. The “GOD” in “In God We Trust” is an acronym for “Global Obama Devotion.” Not our national motto!
Born in Los Angeles and currently residing in New York City, photographer Grady O’Connor pulls you in immediately with images of both the naturally majestic and the slightly disturbing. At first glance, “Blob” looks like a spectacular shot of kneaded dough. I actually have no idea what his subject is, but I want to say that it’s either a close-up of fungi or the insides of a cave. Either way, it’s quite a magnificent shot.
O’Connor has exhibited with the Humble Arts Foundation, Brooklyn Artists Gym, and Anne Henning Gallery.
A selection of amazing paintings by Marck Fink. There is something so playful and innocent about them… yet also something so dark.
To communicate both weighty (The Irish Famine, racism, war) and frivolous (clandestine love affairs with Bigfoot?) subject matter, Carson Ellis utilizes a subtle color palette and gentle linework. Her art is similar to children’s books in that the dialogue (if any) is limited, but the illustrations and their message speak volumes. And she’s married to Colin Meloy, the lead singer of The Decemberists!
