Liam Devowski’s Optimistic Graphics

Liam Devowski lives and works in San Francisco as an Art Director at ad agency Mekanism. His bold colored messages and sharp imagery always have a way of looking at the bright side. One reoccurring motif in his work is the PBS logo with a single tear. This added design element playfully changes the meaning from “Public Broadcasting Service” to “Pretty Bummed and Sad”. Devowski takes pleasure in occasional sadness and uses it to fuel optimistic and enlivened design work.

BAYROL JIMENEZ

Mexican artist Bayrol Jimenez’s dense drawings remind me of the drawings of Raymond Pettibon and Mike Kelley but on acid. See more drawings, sculptures, and acid flashbacks after the jump.

Abstract, Subtract, Retract With Todd Chilton


Plenty of nice geometric abstractions on Todd Chilton’s portfolio site. Geometric abstractions can sometimes be a bore but Todd manages to get it right with his playful paint handling and the occasional drip of paint.

B/D Best of 2010 – Tenko

overflowing origin

Swiss artist Tenko‘s work seems to represent a twisting, flawed humanity that we try to forget. Looking at his work I’m very conscious of the fact that my supposedly higher thoughts and feelings all rely on a system of organs, pumps, and fluids to exist and no amount of perfume is going hide the fact that we are simply beasts of flesh and bone. Maybe it’s all those perfectly modeled legs or even the grotesque facial expressions but I feel like I’m definitely gonna have to exfoliate tonight.

Gabriel Pionkowski’s Deconstructed and Reconstructed Paintings

Though the work of Gabriel Pionkowski may be constructed like a sculpture, he is definitely a painter.  Pionkowski meticulously takes apart his canvases and painstakingly hand paints each individual thread.  Then, using a loom, he reweaves the thread into a canvas once again.  Painters have deconstructed and reconstructed the concepts of painting for ages.  Pionkowski, however does this in literal sense.  His process of destruction and recreation reveals the literal and theoretical structure behind art and painting.  The reconstructed pieces reveal the typically hidden supports of the canvas while creating a kind of absolute abstraction.

Design Watch: Martina Carpelan

 

Martina Carpelan’s clever utensil set is called “For Men with Hammers But No Manners” and I’m sure we’ve all sat next to someone who has literally sawed at their food, shoveled soup and plowed through their salad.
