Chris McVeigh’s Customized Retro Technology LEGO Kits

lego-1 nintendo video game

Canadian photographer and general polymath Chris McVeigh has found fame as an in-demand commercial illustrator and designer, but his recent forays into LEGO toy designs have been bringing him even more attention recently. Taking inspiration from outdated and outmoded technologies, McVeigh’s recent collection creates sets from existing LEGO parts – and offers them as kits for sale or open-source plans for those who wish to build their own.

Not only does McVeigh create toy replicas of tube-televisions, early computers and gaming systems, but he also creates miniature “sets” – realistic era backdrops – complete with shag carpet, wood-paneling, and tacky wallpaper, just so his creations fit in. (via colossal)

Presenting your artwork in the best light is always a must. The good people at  Made With Color  couldn’t agree more and have taken it upon themselves to create one of the easiest and cleanest website building platforms in the world.  Made With Colors delivers easy to use websites that are mobile friendly with drag and drop functionality. This week we’ve teamed up with them to feature one of the many artists that use their platform to present their work.

Wandering inside the landscapes of Justin Kim is like entering the consciousness of the artist. Choosing to paint different subjects according to the seasons, he ends up depicting landscapes during warm weather periods, when he can sit outside and take advantage of nature. His inspirations lead his paintbrush. By painting outdoors, Kim surprises himself and improvises on the go. Each painting is filled with soft harmonized colors that have a washed out vintage feel with wide brushstrokes and dense layering that captures the far reaching horizons. The exact locations of each painting is unknown but Kim’s rich sense of  color, perspective and space makes us want to run out of our homes and search for these impressive landscapes.

We are really enjoying Nolan Hendrickson’s recent work. They remind me of the dirty side of city life – but through a colorful, and naive window. The bold colors remind me of electrical signs that pollute the city at night. But the style of which Nolan approaches these paintings are so fun and dreamlike that it feels like I am experiencing these environments as a child.

Cai-Guo Qiang

2006_HeadOn_1

New York based artist, the theatrical Cai-Guo Qiang, is yet another artist I dream of to meet one day. He is mostly known for his gunpowder explosions, where the guided impact of exploded gunpowder creates beautiful marks on the paper it is placed over. Proof how beauty and violence are sometimes intertwined with each other, a concept Cai-Guo works with often.

Petrina Hicks

Petrina Hicks’ latest series Beautiful Creatures appeals to our senses. Immediately alluring the large-scale, hyper-real photographs, are all rendered so clearly and with such control that they are reminiscent of advertisements, promoting a slick new television series perhaps, or teen clothing range.
