Amazing amazing creative direction by Russian artists Alexandra Zaharova & Ilya Plotnikov for Doberman Studio of which they are founders. I can’t enough of it (women in fashion photography involving paper)!
Jiro Bevis is a UK based illustrator with a huge body of work- his style seems to work for everything! I love the colors and clever concepts. Looks like a guy who knows how to have fun.
Los Angeles based artist Chadwick Gibson makes sculpture/devices that border on usability and absurdity by making the innards of various playground-use balls visible in his “Time Out Series” (can you still play tennis when your tennis balls are flipped inside out?), and combining the functionalities and inherent experiences in an elevator and a guillotine with the piece “Speed of Judgment” (mimicking a beheading followed by the sensation of floating above ones headless body).
This video was a collaboration between Terri Timely Studios and PACT. Terri Timely is the awarding-winning directing duo of Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasy.
Allison Shulnik recently created a wondrously hallucinogenic claymation short film set to Grizzly Bear’s song, “ready, able.” Her hauntingly hypercolor vision starring an eyeless, melting psychedelic-priest from mars are dazzling, surreal and beautiful.
James Turrell is one of the most important artists in the world dealing in light and space. Born in Los Angeles in 1943, Turrell studied mathematics, psychology and sensory synesthesia as well as art at university. He flies around the desert in little planes and has devoted the best part his working life to turning a volcano into a piece of land art. “The spaces you encounter during flight can be amazing: meeting the dawn or watching the Aurora Borealis,” he says and describes an experience of taking off once at dawn and seeing the sunlight trapped between ground fog below and cloud cover above. These words paint a perfect portrait of his work.
