New Origami Street Art from Mademoiselle Maurice

The work of Paris based artist Mademoiselle Maurice is a peculiar type of street art.  These new pieces especially emphasize these pleasant peculiarities.  She typically forgoes paint in favor of mediums uncommon on the street such as lace or paper.  This newest artwork required over 30,000 folded pieces – a sort of mass origami street art.  Mademoiselle Maurice was able to complete the projects with the help of hundreds of volunteers, many of them local school children.  She thus covered the steps and entrance of the Montée St-Maurice as well as hand a nearby mural.   [via]

Laura Splan

I love the work of Laura Splan. She uses a combined knowledge of biological sciences and fine art to re-invent patterns and forms created by the human body. Because her work is closely linked to the biology of the human condition, it evokes an inherent discomfort. For me, this is most prevalent in “Purse #1”, a delicate evening bag constructed with remnant facial peels from her breast.

Ludovic Florent’s Mesmerizing Photoseries Of Nude Dancers Engulfed In Dust (NSFW)

Ludovic Florent‘s new photoseries Poussières d’étoiles (which translating as Stardust) features the natural beauty of the human body in motion, capturing dancer’s poses in moments of ecstasy, distress and grace. Each photograph is highlighted by the staging, a chalk and sand floor which enhances each movement, with dust clouds mirroring the appendage’s motions to create a dramatic physical presence of their own. Florent says, “In our changing society, my photographic work is guided by a humanistic look, willingness to foreground the natural beauty of the body, free to express his grace and personality.”

The Metz, France-based Florent created Poussières d’étoiles for Gallery HEGOA, and in anticipation for the European Festival of Nude Photography in Arles, France in May, 2014. The photographer further explains his work, “‘Behind every carnal envelope hides a soul that is both sensitive and flamboyant as I try to capture in each of my photographs.’ We certainly enjoy his work guided by a humanistic look, finding expression in a series that is both, sensitive and vivid.”   (via ignant)

Mehmet Gozetlik’s Neon Signs Transform Popular Logos Into Chinese Characters

mehmet gozetlik designmehmet gozetlik designmehmet gozetlik design

Artist Mehmet Gozetlik has designed a series of popular trademarks into neon signs. The series called Chinatown takes popular logos and adds a description of the represented product in chinese neon letters. The sign’s unusual characters reminisce experiences tourists have wandering aimlessly throughout the world’s Chinatowns letting themselves get seduced by these exotic bright letters. The irony is that nine out of ten times the logo itself is recognizable on its own and the words are unnecessary.  Is there anyone on the planet who cannot identify Starbucks or Pepsi brands on sight?

Mehmet’s signs are made from handblown painted glass. Each letter and product logo is stenciled out and designed from a printed drawing. The process of blowing glass is long and tedious. The flame has to be exactly the right temperature in order for it to mold into the desired shape. After it hardens the glass is painted. Upon studying the signs and seeing them together you realize people cannot digest more than a few colors at once when making a decision. Each logo Mehmet chose has three colors or less which is not a coincidence. It’s been documented that the brain can only handle six choices at once. If it goes over that number it shuts down. Corporate culture wouldn’t dream of this happening and explains why these logos are kept simple.

A few years ago, Gozetlik designed another interesting series which minimized logo packaging. The study “Minimalist effect in the maximalist market” showed how a product becomes more desirable as the packaging is stripped away. He used brands such as Nutella and Pringles to achieve this goal.   (via designboom)

The Design Based Abstract Street Art of Sergio Gómez

The street art of Sergio Gómez brings the latest in abstract art and graphic design to urban walls.  Unlike much complex and text heavy street art, Gomez’ work primarily relies on primary colors and simple geometric forms.  He seems to borrow as much from art styles such as Suprematism as he does from principles of graphic design.  Gomez’ street art even seems to express a similar tendency to some the most exciting new abstract painters often referred to as the New Casualists.  The murals seem to acknowledge street art conventions but mischievously not deliver.  His work is subversive in reclaiming public space while undermining expectations.
