This is motion design studio Animatorio’s latest animation. It’s an open title sequence for MTV Brazil’s Rockgol. This design team uses 3d, 2d, programming, and stop motion techniques to create their awesome videos. To see more works by them visit their Vimeo!
Collage artist Maksim Hem aptly titled this quiet series of works “Untitled Colours.” The name lends itself to the idea of objects overlooked, because they don’t scream and shout to get your attention. Hem’s restraint does not imply a lack of feeling but rather an attention to detail that is unnecessary to decorate. It’s like watching the Discovery Channel over Bravo–the life and times of baby cheetahs are just such a welcome change of pace.
Pascal Bernier’s art work depicts an ongoing theme about human and animal relationships. This Brussels based sculptor uses and manipulates different representation of animals to take a detached look at social behavior. Some of Bernier’s work is a social commentary about game hunting (and what is done to the animal’s body after it is killed); Bernier work represents animals in a very sad manner questioning your own ethics on animal rights.
This is for all fans of graffiti who have always wondered what boxer Mike Tyson thought about writing your name all over city walls. Some of you will surely be amazed by Tyson’s eloquent musings on the subject matter…”I’m Surely was.”
The work of Johan Björkegren feels like a fairy tale, with twists and turns. It’s what I pictured when I was 5 and holding the covers hearing stories. It is decrepid and pronounced, and can, at times, feel like a house that won’t stop squeaking. It feels loved and nurtured, but it doesn’t believe in purity or the idea of white.
The boombastic Superoboturbo illustrations remind me of how excited I used to be when I saw monkeys on television. I used to be obsessed with those little fuzzy guys, and I’m beginning to swoon for this man’s work the same way. His controlled pallette and friendly line-weight make for a rambunctious duo that make it hard to pull my eyes away.
Also, he recently broke his leg so maybe send him a nice note or a little work to help cheer him up/pay the medical bills at: [email protected]
I don’t know much about photographer Germinal Roaux because his Wikipedia page is in French, but just the fact that he has a Wikipedia page is good enough for me. Not to mention his lovingly rich black and white photos. They look like I could scoop them up with a butter knife and smooth them over my morning scone. From ballerinas to rock stars, Roaux wraps each of his images in his own special blend of spellbound.
This guy’s sweatshirt says it all. The dark, capacious surroundings try to steal the show but his face has such a “just you try” intensity that, despite his size, you know he could for sure kill you with his bare hands. See, Moscow based artist, Olya Ivanova, knows that good portraiture should give the viewer an understanding of what it feels like to be the subject of the image. And it feels pretty serious.
