Manchester illustrator Kris Tate’s work is bold, vibrant and full of life. Her work mixes digital and hand drawn elements in neon colors that pop. Her influences range from 60′ and 80’s vintage culture and music to Scandinavian knitwear. Her work is fresh, edgy and very relevant for today’s hipster cultures. I for one am loving the sweater dressed animals and their bright pop environments.
Gorgeous, futuristic, and a bit dark, Spanish fashion photographer Alvaro Villarrubia does not disappoint. Enter his world of beauty, robots, the grotesque, and the sexy after the jump.
A bold claim made by Dutch artists Sander Plug and Lernert Engelberts, but fairly well deserved. Since their first collaboration, they have been working on commercials, leaders, art movies, documentaries and installations. Their aim is to make simple and communicative works, that takes little note of the existing border between contemporary art and commercial projects. Their highly esthetic, humorous and dedicated works are often challenging the media and its viewer, in a simple but very effective way. Check out some of their shorts after the jump! They all sort of share the same color palette and are nice in that way.
It seems talent is coming at a younger age these days. At only 22 years old South Afcrian Paul Ward is a photographer to watch and follow with more work in his portfolio than most seasoned vets. His series of people simply looking at the camera and screaming is simple yet breathtaking group of images. Scream with Paul Ward and friends after the jump.
Born into a long bloodline of creatives, illustrator Treasure Frey’s work of collage/ drawings is certainly something to watch for. Her work reminds me a lot of the awesome animations from Monty Python, except with the intricate combination of beautiful mark-making with varying line weights, loops, and brightly colored shapes, she has made a killer style of her own.
Letha Wilson slices, dices, and combines materials to create hybrid images that tether between the the world of reproduction and 3D representation.
Brian Dettmer takes the idea that the cassette tape is dead a little too far. However, the likes of his works are grotesque and beautiful in that they are so mesmerizing to stare at.
