Taisuke Koyama describes his works as “organic abstract photography”. He shoots surfaces and various states of degradation of artifacts in a city and thinks about those changes in state as the city’s metabolism- it’s an organism that’s changing every moment. It’s such a simple and beautiful idea.
As usual there is no info for this new video for Fujiya & Miyagi on the vimeo page but it’s still awesome. I looked long and hard for who did the animation but…no dice…. GET IT? NO DICE??? Hahahaha! Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here all week ladies and gentleman.
Vancouver resident Dina Goldstein’s ”Fallen Princess” series makes us both laugh, cringe and wonder if Disney princesses were thrown into today, what their lives would be like (minus that Enchanted movie…).
Lui Bolin is not a ghost, but a Chinese artist who is very mysterious in his ways of producing art. Is it performance art? Photography? Conceptual? All of the above? Either way, I couldn’t find him in the tractor picture for a good 5 minutes.
Geoff McFetridge is an artist based in Los Angeles California. Born in Canada, he was schooled at the Alberta College of Art and the California Institute of the Arts. From poetry to animation, from graphics to 3D work, from textile and wallpaper to paintings, McFetridge has complete control over these various mediums. McFetridge’s work is all about inviting the viewer to participate. He gives the viewer an opportunity figure out his puzzle , a puzzle that has more than one answer. Often imitated, but never equalled, McFetridge has created a double helix of personal and commercial art projects, blending disciplines and purpose in almost every project he does. In the past ten years, McFetridge has created a unique imagery through his work, which is detailed and abstract at the same time. Full of hats, animals, hands, heads, teeth.
Making themselves out to be a designer version of the Ramones, Cosmo Sapiens consist of 3 Parisians: Golgo (Ruben) Sapiens, Malmo (Ben) Sapiens and Romano (Romain) Sapiens. Not limited to these three, they like to consider themselves a huge “creative family,” using various artists, photographers and designers (not unlike ourselves). Mostly playful illustrations, their works are colorful, exciting and imaginative, everything we’d want to see in a band of quirky designers.
Chad Hagen, of Minneapolis, MN, makes pleasant pieces of art that would fit wonderfully in our (new!) offices. Maybe we should order a print or two. We love his use of black and… off-white, while also mastering the use of color in other works. We were attracted to his “Historically Fragmented” series, only to be delighted in the other series he had to offer. Also check out his Flickr, as he’s trying to make something cool every day.
