Pawel Fabjanski’s Mysterious Postmodern Photography

Polish photographer Pawel Fabjanski serves up a nice blend of commercial/fashion aesthetics and personal input within his work. He brings a mysterious, postmodern edge to everything he does, whether it be a portrait of a girl with red pyramids attached to her face, or a troop of nondescript people in weird, pink lab attire (above). Touching on themes of alienation and “man’s response to the environment”, each photo gives you just the right amount of chills. Fabjanski also spends time teaching at the National Film School in Lodz.

It’s time for our weekly exclusive artist feature in partnership with premiere website builder Made With Color. Each week we join forces to bring you some of the most exciting artists and designers working today who use Made With Color to build their clean and sleek websites. Made With Color is a website builder that helps artists create gorgeous mobile/tablet optimized websites in only a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This week we are happy to share the work and website of Tanya Batura.

Los Angeles artist Tanya Batura is known for her delightfully grotesque busts that reference a wide array of subject matter such as BDSM, fashion, serial killers, human deformities and classical 15th Century sculpture. Working in ceramics, a medium that has both its detractors and supporters, Batura’s large-scale heads defy even their own materiality, transforming the often staid and predictable parameters of the medium toward a more cohesive and deliberately forceful sensibility.

Batura’s work is at once monumental and delicate, geometric and languorously sensual in their fluidity, starkly devoid of color yet strangely shadowed from within. Pushing both material and content, Batura’s agenda is clearly less about pleasing any perceived “viewer,” and much more about complete absorption into her own process.

An exclusive interview with Tanya Batura is available in Beautiful/Decay Issue:V available on the B/D SHOP.

Jon Owen

Picture 5We’ve been posting alot of amazing illustrators from the UK, and Jon Owen is yet another within this category. You can difinitely detect a common stylistic thread from piece to piece, yet, Jon also has a strength for mixing things up and keeping his work fresh. I’m personally fond of his limited color splashes & muted palette, which only increases my curiosity to explore the details of these narratives.

Monster Trucks!

 
 

Artist Keith Loutit combined two techniques – tilt-shift and time-lapse photography – to create a “dreamy” impression of the monster trucks rally in Brisbane, Australia. In tilt-shift photography, objects are made to appear small and toylike by altering the camera’s lens to narrow the image’s depth of field – the portion of a scene that appears sharp. By running together 15,000 of these still photos – taken over three hours at the event in November – he created a magical time-lapse animation that has earned plaudits across the web. The self-taught artist’s videos, including footage of swimmers at Bondi Beach in Sydney produced using a similar technique, have attracted huge numbers of views on video-sharing websites such as Vimeo.
