Behind the Scenes of Apenest’s new Print!

ApenestPrint

ApenestPrint5

Cody Hoyt of Apenest fame recently created a brand new limited edition silkscreened print, “Rise and Shine,” sent straight from an astral projection and into your orange shag, unicorn carpet disc0-ball custom RV. Cody is part of ourindependent artist’s network (represented by tiles on the lower right hand side of our site). What is probably most exciting about this acid-induced multi-armed vision is that it can be viewed in daylight….and blacklight! Remember in high school when your one friend had the cool hang out with the parents never home and you’d have friends over to stare at mushroom-vortex blacklight posters and pretend you were burned out hippies on mushrooms, even though you were only 14? Well, my friends, Apenest has created a slightly more adult version for all us UV-obssesed kids who have grown up (or not). Some amazing behind the scenes process shots after the jump, including his tromp l’oiel suggestion box bathroom…..

See How Deceptive Advertising Images Can Be With Before And After Photos

We all know that advertising is an illusion, and built around pandering to our desires. But, it would be safe to say that a majority of us aren’t fully aware of just how far that mirage extends. Russian compositor Ashot Gevorkyan is helping remove the wool from our eyes by exposing the secrets of the industry that he himself works in. In his series of composited GIFS, he demonstrates just how the final image is built up. He shows us the initial shot, and also the steps completed in post production to achieve the end result.

We are able to see how 3 actors in front of a green screen in a studio are eventually placed in a post apocalyptic city, hectically shooting at a crowd of zombies surrounding them. Bodies are unnaturally lengthened; artificial skies added behind groups of people; lighting effects are fabricated; even the color of clothing is transformed.

It is an interesting experiment in raising awareness of just how critical we need to stay of the media around us. Just because we are consuming more media, doesn’t mean we should try what we see and hear any more than in the past. Mocking up these images, Gevorkyan demonstrates just how easily and efficiently it is for professions to advertise a completely make believe world. For more eye opening images, see after the jump.

Maria Walker’s Back Is The New Front (Of A Painting)

Why paint the front of the canvas when you can turn it around, add a few more stretcher bars into the mix, and create work that blurs the line between sculpture and paintings. Well Maria Walker has done just that with her colorfield paintings covered with tumor-like bumps and protruding limbs.

Raul Ronald Moreno‘s digital creations are fun, experimental and in many ways abstract. Most of the work has a cool color pallette but along with playful compositions, he creates a lot of dimension in the work using bright colors to highlight areas of interest.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Lykke Li- Untitled

I love this new video of Lykke Li trapped on an island, decked out in 5 inch heels, and stabbing at the sand with various knives. I have no idea what this is about but going along for the ride. It’s sexy, weird, dramatic, epic, and has a dash of goofiness (check out the knife play towards the end. Full video after the jump.
