Adam Martinakis’ Digital Worlds

Polish pixel wizard Adam Martinakis’ digital illustrations are out of this world. I can’t figure out if these started as photographs, elaborate sets, or live completely within the computer but they are impressive nevertheless.(via vectro ave)

Matthew Daniel Swan

I am really enjoying Matthew Daniel Swan’s work. He creates beautiful illustrations and paintings from which he draws inspiration from pulp cartoons and references Trenton Doyle Hancock. Swan was born in 1987 and works and lives in Edinburgh.

Vintage Board Games from the Soviet Union

Retronaut recently posted a gallery of early Soviet-era Russian board game designs and illustrations. The images seem to be taken from a LiveJournal user by the name of babs71. You’ll find some seriously gorgeous propaganda here. The vintage illustrations depict workers young and old, soldiers bravely entering battle to defend the Motherland,and some nicely stylized industrial complexes. Find more hammer and sickle goodness after the jump.

Jenny Aryton Encapsulates Childhood Memories In Molten Glass

jenny-ayrton_art_2jenny-ayrton_art_6jenny-ayrton_art_1jenny-ayrton_art_7

British artist Jenny Aryton creates “miniature wonderlands captured in molten glass.” Almost like snow globe depictions of every day life, Jenny Aryton’s work physically encapsulates intimate depictions of her private world. Gaining inspiration from her young daughter, she aims to gather excitement from the mundane. Her work tends to have a “domestic twist” as she allows her surrounding of her home and family guide the way as her source imagery. Her process begins by creating small metal wire figurines. She fashions tiny sweaters, chairs, trees, shovels, and other objects found in an everyday family home. She then organizes a simplistic scene, almost like a child playing with a dollhouse. After everything has been arranged, Aryton then encases it between two layers of molten hot glass which is poured at 1100ºC (2012ºF). She uses what is called sandcasting. She molds the overall shape of the piece in sand — just as a plaster sculptor would do with clay or wax. One the first layer is poured, she has one brief moment, while the glass is still fluid, to manipulate the aspects of the piece. The second layer is then poured and the whole piece is placed to set in a kiln for two days where it will take its final form. The glass, as a fragile and volatile material, will solidify differently each time, creating a one of a kind piece.  The delicate and cloudy imperfection of each piece almost seems to mimic the memory of a child. The have a solemn charm that is nostalgic yet innocent. Each piece is quiet, quaint and unique. (via iGNANT)

Jordan Wolfson’s Provocative And Sassy Female Life-Like Robot That Will Boss You Around

Jordan Wolfson - Video 4

Jordan Wolfson - Video 1Jordan Wolfson - Video 3

An animatronic busty dancer lasciviously moves and converses with the public, speaking with a men’s voice and hyper sexual tones. The life like robot imagined and produced by Jordan Wolfson, dressed up with a leather dress and white thigh-high vinyl boots, sassily swivels her hips and watches her spectator through her dirty greenish mask. The dirt reveals the past of the robot; she has escaped from something but isn’t hurt; she’s here with us and she’s ready to put up her show. Like a real spectacle, the public is only allowed for a couple of minutes with the dancer.  A closed set, a twosome controled by an assertive and repetitive speech and a powerful vision.

Jordan Wolfson is interested in the strange. Therefore he is not focused on the meaning of his art. He is aware of the influence of You Tube and other social media platforms within its generation but he is fascinated by the power of images, the way they are thrown at us and the way we accept it, with or without consequences. The artist works in a non associative way, giving us a non judgmental rendering of his vision. Like his life in Los Angeles where he now resides, his pieces are intuitive and fictional. His concept and art statement has lead the public and the art world to label him as a provocative contemporary artist.
“I’m not telling anyone what to think. I don’t have that responsibility. I’m expressing myself. It’s as simple as that.” He uses art as a safe place where he can express, without fear, his traumas and anger.

Jordan Wolfson art work is exhibited as part of a group show at the Whitney Museum in New York until September 2015, and at the Serpentine Gallery in London this fall 2015

Benze’s Ultra Detailed Ink Drawings Are An Explosion Of Pleasure For Your Eyes

Benze - Drawings 1 Benze - Drawings 3 Benze - Drawings 7 Benze - Drawings 5

Extremely detailed back and white drawings. Benze is an Hungarian artist who hand-draws ink illustrations. The work in singular. Looking like tattoos from far away, up close; it’s an invitation to explore every single detail forming the elaborate face, animal or flora.

Benze compares his process to a “distillation”. An attempt to part the traditional oil painting and the modern back and white graphics. The result is a blend of calligraphic style, an “art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner”; and perfectly traced features. The artist’s intention is to give pleasure to the eye. The explosion of intricate characteristics within a general shape calls the attention. Benz tells a story within a story. Leaving the viewers the option to just see the bigger image or to go deeper into the thousands of fine-drawn hidden elements.

“The tattooed looking components are very important parts of my drawings because they continuously open up new interpretations of the image”.
The designs imitating tattoo graphics open the imagination for endless new interpretations. The structure of the drawings create an energy which can never bore the eye. (via Illusion Magazine)

Supplying good quality products, serving people with all my heart.

"Supplying good quality products, serving people with all my heart."

New York artist Kevin Cyr finds beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. He has always been interested in painting vehicles and scenes that have defined the evolution of the American landscape. A lot of his work has to do with the commemoration of commercial and recreational vehicles barely the signs of over-usage. He enjoys finding the character of these old cars and giving them a portrait-like importance by removing them from their everyday context. I love the way he discusses certain issues with the present lifestyle we lead with a subtle touch of humor.
