Video Watch: Humorous Claymation Shows You How To Lose Weight in 60 Seconds

Take a quick break from work and watch this claymation piece from Australian animator Dave Carter. Entitled “How to Lose Weight in 60 Seconds”, the short vid is packed with quality animation full of gnarly expressions and even gnarlier action as a body-conscious protagonist makes his way through drastic weight loss measures. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I’m talking about VERY drastic measures, all depicted hilariously while Carter demonstrates the full breadth of his extensive talents. Watch the 60 second piece after the jump.

Best Of 2012: Delta- From Graffiti To Architecture

It’s always interesting to see what graffiti writers do in the fine art world. Some keep rehashing the same work on canvas, losing all of the power that energized the work by having it in the streets. However some artists such as the legendary Dutch graffiti artist Delta take what they’ve learned through their years of painting letterforms and create amazing new works that re-imagine architecture, space, installation and painting. Wondering what Delta’s graffiti looked like back in the day? Click the read more button and check out the last image.

Carl Kleiner

Tarelugnt-1

Stockholm based Carl Kleiner, is a wonderfully talented still-life photographer. I love his work on the manequins and fruit assemblage. Endearingly quirky, and cute. Make sure to check out his photographic diary! Not only will you find an extension of his style (and more,) but a wonderful example of his take on every day life.

Ryan Salge’s Drawings Conjure Dark Dreams And Eerie Realities

Ryan-Salge-9 Ryan-Salge-1 Ryan-Salge-10 Ryan-Salge-7

Artist Ryan Salge’s monochromatic drawings are of surreal scenes that feel like dreamscapes. The tightly-rendered compositions feature expansive outdoor worlds and figures that traverse through them. Often times, the men and women in them are as curious as we are. Their backs are turned towards us, and it’s as if we’re on the journey right along with them.

There’s always something a little strange or alluring in each of Salge’s drawings. A woman looks up to dark, swirling sky as a small patch of light shines through. Another work features bodies rising upwards into the atmosphere. And, in an especially eerie piece, a barefooted man peers down as a spotlight shines onto a desolate field. (Via Lustik)

Ran Hwang’s Large, Zen-Infused Installations Made of Beads

Brooklyn based SVA grad Ran Hwang makes these huge, flowing sculptures with nothing but beads and pins! The uplifting, spiritual elements involved here work really well with the light, dispersed beads. You can almost see the birds’ wings flapping, and everything seems sort of frozen in time at some climactic, freeing moment. Obviously the Zen influence is deliberate. From the artist’s website: “The process of building large installations are time consuming and repetitive and it requires manual effort which provides a form of self-meditation. I hammer thousands of pins into a wall like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen.” I guess patience does pay off. (via)
