The Crowded Horror Of Hubert Blanz’ Ariel Photographs Of Highways

As natural gas reserves lessen and human population increases, many artists have taken the task of portraying dystopian versions of our world, visually demonstrating the costs of urban sprawl. Viennese-based photographer Hubert Blanz has taken the expansion of the world’s highways to their terrifying logical conclusion, offering a digitally collaged set of images which imagines the road systems stacked upon each other in endless repetition.

Offering visions of a planet covered by concrete and blacktop, there is a swirling, organized chaos found in the photos, one which mirrors the many present day megalopolis of the world. Displaying roads which lead to nowhere, but are expansions built upon assumptions of the future we are heading towards, the Hindelang, Germany-born Blanz explains his quixotic photoseries; “Roadshow is a series of images formed and built up from the digital recordings of pre-existing freeways networks, roads, bridges, and intersections. The images are both documentations of actual built spaces and the imaginary re-creation of potential new cities.” (via foxgrl)

Artist Interview: ZANE LEWIS AND HIS SHATTER PAINTINGS

Artist Zane Lewis, an elusive and evolving talent, has reemerged within the New York art scene with a fresh and new aesthetic. When you stand before one his newest works, among the Shatter Paintings collection, you are presented with a kaleidoscopic garden of glass, a reflective playground for the eyes. With a minimal, neo-conceptual execution, his mirrored “paintings” offer a glistening ensemble of hued splendor. A discourse between notions of the “natural” and the “industrial”- due to organic reflections coupled with pre-fabricated found material- engages the viewer. Lewis also adds a twist to this aesthetic, in that each painting subtly renders human abstractions of life, death, and wraith of the intangible.

Benjamin Rawson’s Hyper Tropical Room Dissections

Benjamin Rawson lives and works in the UK. His gouache paintings and drawings are often presented as house diagrams where op-art patterns, tropical foliage, and basketballs run wild. Other works feature densly layered vegetation filled to the brim with every color in the rainbow. It is as if the artist is presenting post modern psychedelic versions of Mouse Trap for a culture obsessed with sports and illusions of paradise.

David Ellis & Blu’s Amazing Stop Motion Street Art Video

Blu David Ellis street art4Blu David Ellis street art3

Artists David Ellis and Blu blended two art forms that rarely meet: street art and animation.  Throughout the video the mural takes over an entire building unfolding through a stop motion style.  At times the art playfully utilizes aspects of the structure’s architecture – a style Blu has expertly developed in his work (for example, check out the first piece in this post.)  The artists tirelessly paint and repaint images to further the animated sequence.  Amazing images are quickly covered over to make way for the next image.  The labor necessary was certainly staggering as is the self-control necessary to paint over pieces that were just complete.
