Diego Diaz and Federica Moretti

943X0165

Fashion photographer Diego Diaz and hat designer Federica Moretti collaborated on this project, “Sickhead,” featuring an all black collection of bold, graphic, and whimsical creations by Moretti. It’s hard to believe that these are actually supposed to be hats, and the photographs seem to suggest sculpture rather than fashion. Either way, these “looks” are exciting and dramatic.

Bill Durgin

fig_02

Bill Durgin‘s “Figure Studies” explores the human torso as an abstract form. He often takes inspiration from dance and other performers to capture images of the human body, (sans limbs and heads), as if their skeletons had lost their rigidity and become part of their skin, fat, and flesh. Durgin would demonstrate different poses he took away from performances and ask his models to imitate them – a lot of these guys must be yoga ninjas.

Revenge is Sweet

93_varoom-marionette-03

Revenge is Sweet is the collaboration of the creative duo Angelique Piliere and Lee Owens. They combine black and white halftone images with a limited but bold color palate to create striking images and type. Their use of disembodied legs and lips, and their eclectic mix of seemingly random imagery makes for a quirkiness that I love.

Gabriel Moreno

Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them.

The Art of Fashion

Sandra Backlund, Ink Blot Test

Lady Gaga may be all the rage right now, but fashion designers have been creating insane masterpieces, (and often sheer madness), for years, probably since the conception of the fashion industry. Despite what many think, fashion is not – and never has been – centered around functionality, (if that were the case, then I’d say no clothes for hot days and snuggies for cold ones), but instead serves as an outlet for creative expression, just as the paintbrush does the painter and the stage the dancer. The only difference between these art pieces and more traditional ones is you can wear them… sometimes.

Here are some B/D picks for amazing apparel design.

Li Hui

Li Hui, a conceptual artist born in the (a term which is often used here) post-70′s decade, creates a lot of his work with automobiles and “custom laser array, Laser Night Module, waterjet cutting machines, and laser engraving machines” in his arsenal. He’s even welded two front parts of a car together and turned yet another car into a pink sofa. Check out his video interview on The Creator’s Project.

And yes, I am alive and well in China!

Awesome Video Of The Day: Accumulonimbus

In Andy Kennedy‘s Accumulonimbus, natural and man-made objects on a spin cycle accumulate, disintegrate, and multiply. Created by stop motion animating clay on glass, the film is a meditation on motion and the life cycle of matter… Awesome! Check out the making of post here.

Radames “Juni” Figueroa

Today I was perusing the website of Proyectos Ultravioleta, a Guatemala based gallery, and found the work by Radames “Juni” Figueroa. Besides a sweet painting of a mustachiod Dracula rocking a cape and a Misfits shirt (dream babe, hello!) I found the above readymade installation. Lo and behold, I discovered a Beautiful/Decay apparel shirt we did with Rob Thom shirt we did from four years ago! Sweet! While we’ve since sold out of that shirt, Radames, if you’re listening, we did a re-make of the Bad Brains classic cover art work (now re-christened Decayed Brains) which is for sale on our online shop. If you care to make another installation work out of our T-shirts. Really great work….check out more after the jump!
