Made With Color Presents: Brian Irving’s Neo-Psychedelic “Eye’s Wide” Video

Brian Irving Brian Irving

Beautiful/Decay and premiere website building platform Made With Color  have joined forces once again to bring you exclusive artist features. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers who use Made With Color to create their clean and sleek websites. This week we’re excited to bring you the mind-altering and dreamlike music video by Brian Irving.

“Eyes Wide” is the new single and video from Brian Irving, aka Brian Brater, the co-founder of the legendary Rawkus Records (Black Star, Talib Kweli, Pharoah Monch, Company Flow, Big L and more) and responsible for developing artists like Frank Ocean collaborator Om’mas Keith, Dr. Luke and for starting the media network and website

Irving’s first release is a lush conscious neo-psychedelic experience, drawing comparisons to Tame Impala and Pink Floyd. His debut album Radiant Things is set for a July 16 release date featuring cover art by one of our favorite painters Wendell Gladstone. The video, produced by Los Angeles design agency Something In The Universe is inspired by the psychedelic energy of Captain Murphy and Tampa Impala videos as well as the imagery and style of assume vivid astro focus and London’s 14 Hour Technicolor Dream.

Irving has to say this about his new video, “The ‘Eyes Wide’ animation and drawings have a beautiful lucid dream-like quality, like an amazing planetarium light show, or an assume vivid astro focus video or installation.  The song beautifully complements the video:  both the imagery and music are soaked with delays and reverb-like quality – the symbolic imagery of open spaces, one-eyed fantasy, and psychedelic big fish perfectly reflect the “wet” yet dynamic sound of my guitar/synth processing  and pulsing electric bass lines.”

Color Shifting Art Uses RGB Lights To Change Scenes



Italian based artist team, Carnovsky, unveiled their RGB Fabulous Landscapes during Milan Design Week 2013. Their digital fresco’s were printed using an innovative technique by Italian company graphicreport. In plain light the landscapes, figures, architecture and atmospheres vibrate and the images are tangled with one another.

But when red, blue or green light is applied to the digital fresco’s a whole different series of pictures emerge. In the piece Atmospheric N. 1 the sky seems to be in a flux of sunrise, sunset and storm as the lighting changes.

In Landscape N.1 a room that seems to go back into infinity is taken over by a lush green landscape which then gives way to a centuries old battle scene.

Both the technique and the imagery are compelling and together the juxtaposition creates an ethereal and haunting effect. (via)

I’m happy to present second installment of photographs from our amazing European trip with our friends over at Royal Talens And Canson. If you remember we started our trip in Paris and made our way over to Amsterdam, stopping along the way to check out all the museums, galleries, and sights that each city offered.

We started our first day in Amsterdam with a boat tour of the canals to get acquainted with the many tiny streets and canals that zig zag throughout the city. Along the way we saw many amazing examples of dutch architecture, design, street art and of course Houseboats!
