As with most emerging artists we first posted Von’s work years ago. Since then he’s been creating a great body of work, collaborating with some of the best brands in the world. His use of traditional drawing techniques mixed with digital wizardry keeps you guessing about what is hand drawn and what is manipulated in each piece. We’ve included some close ups of a few pieces after the jump. See if you can figure it out.
I usually don’t post work like this but there’s something going on in Wilson McLean’s paintings of Jazz musicians and portraits that caught my eye. Maybe it’s the surprise of seeing a more traditional illustrative painting style mixed with hommages to Francis Bacon and David Hockney.
The description of this video says “A short abstract movie dealing with nature and maritime creatures, metamorphosis and transformation-connecting art and science” but all I keep thinking of while I watch this is “wow this is what happens when we’re conceived.” Anyone with me?
