This stop motion video was mainly created out of yarn. It’s beautiful.
I can’t look at Warwick Saint’s portfolio without blushing. His Ink series is dripping with bad girl sex appeal that will have you clicking the next button over and over to see all 85 images from the series. If that’s not enough reason to check out his work he also is an accomplished portrait, music, and celebrity photographer.
Space age abstraction – the power of design tools. Bechira Sorin’s recent digital work, especially the one above, retain a Neo-Dali aesthetic. I love how seamlessly everything ties together, and how fluid his composition is. That said, the futuristic surrealism does not speak for all his work, check out his other illustrations and experiments with typography after the jump.
Brion Nuda Rosch creates what I can best describe as collage-interventions that complicate the “reading” of every day photographs, paint, found objects and magazine spreads. Through the simplest of gestures, Rosch construes new layers and meanings within the context of his images. Above, an elegant blue dot over the face of a dog renders the portrait surreal and anonymous, the blob of paint simultaneously transforming to some kind of bizarre mask or humorous joke-shop clown nose. Rosch currently has some works in the Baer Ridgway exhibition “Hot & Cold” which is up for few more days if you happen to be in SF.
Using a similarly garish color palette to Toulouse-Lautrec, Rosson Crow creates vibrantly haunting paintings of living spaces.
London based Stewart Gough’s high-tech sculptures look like a mixture between NASA space explorers, mad scientist chemistry labs, and futuristic war machines. However they are all built out of everyday materials such as plastic plates, pipe fittings, tape, nylon strings and other everyday materials you could get at your neighborhood hardware store.

Korean artist JeongMoon Choi uses surprisingly simple materials to create installations that appear to be pulled off the computer screen. Simply using thread and UV lights JeongMoon illuminates complex geometric patterns. The arranged thread patterns glow against the dark space at times resembling three dimensional plans. Her installations explore the gallery space, both literally and conceptually. Glowing angles bounce off walls and ceilings emphasizing an architectural space that typically tries to not attract notice.
Art turned fatal for John Jairo Villamil, a thought provoking 25-year-old Colombian university student, who asphyxiated himself amidst a performance. For his act, Villamil covered his head with a garbage bag and placed his feet inside a bucket of water. His actions served as a personal critique of his hometown of Bogotá, Colombia which has been considered one of the most violent cities in the world. Since he had previously executed this piece without incident, many thought the heavy breathing and convulsion were part of the act. Villamil died at an ICU five days after being pronounced brain dead immediately following the incident. His mother, who at one point is said to have provided tips on how to make the performance more shocking, is now blaming the university for neglect.– Huffington Post
