Satan’s Mask

Satan as a headless-masquerade holding ghost on an abandoned island floating in the deep, dark void of space creating life from clay and striking them down, all in front of tiny children. Yes! Amazing excerpt from a stop motion version of Mark Twain’s Mysterious Stranger, by Will Vinton. Censored from many TV stations. Yes!

Design Watch: Rebecca Wilson Ceramics

Rebecca Wilson talks about her paper cup project, “The paper cup is an icon of the ‘throwaway culture’ and by imposing classical ceramic styling and transposing materials I aim to highlight and question our tendency towards wasteful consumerism.

Color Shifting Art Uses RGB Lights To Change Scenes

Italian based artist team, Carnovsky, unveiled their RGB Fabulous Landscapes during Milan Design Week 2013. Their digital fresco’s were printed using an innovative technique by Italian company graphicreport. In plain light the landscapes, figures, architecture and atmospheres vibrate and the images are tangled with one another.

But when red, blue or green light is applied to the digital fresco’s a whole different series of pictures emerge. In the piece Atmospheric N. 1 the sky seems to be in a flux of sunrise, sunset and storm as the lighting changes.

In Landscape N.1 a room that seems to go back into infinity is taken over by a lush green landscape which then gives way to a centuries old battle scene.

Both the technique and the imagery are compelling and together the juxtaposition creates an ethereal and haunting effect. (via)

Hunter Payne’s Prolific Brain Material

 

I love Hunter Payne. His work takes me back to a simple time without being simple. Out of all the shakey hand intimate portraits that are currently sieging the art world,  these creations that float through the crazy artist’s brain are by far the most enjoyable because of their lack of pretense.  Hunter’s humble nature and childlike wonder bring questions forth about the necessity for seriousness in art. More after the jump.

The Art Nouveau Sensibilities of Jugend Magazine

 

We’re not in the habit of sharing stuff that’s not contemporary here, but sometimes you come along something that shouldn’t be overlooked, as it seems relevant no matter when it was created, and could use a little more attention. Jugendstil, the German Art Nouveau movement, was named after the late nineteenth century literary magazine Jugend, which promoted the aesthetic within its pages and on its covers. If you’re looking for some fresh typography/design/illustration inspiration, check out this online resource, which contains lots of images from and info on the magazine. There’s even some Impressionistic stuff mixed with the Art Nouveau goodness, but it all comes off as really fresh. I wonder what Jugend, which didn’t make it out of World War II and Nazism, would be like if it were around today.
