Bartek Elsner’s Sculpture Made Entirely With Cardboard

 

German creative Bartek Elsner has an impressive track record when it comes to both commercial and non-commercial work. Illustration, Art Direction, Graphic Design- he does it all. But I’m most hyped on his sculptures made completely out of cardboard. Dubbed The Paper Stuff, this ongoing series includes cardboard fireplaces (installed on the street), CCTV cameras, automatic weapons, chainsaws, and animals. Taking a look at the project’s page, there is a really evident progression in skill with the medium on Elsner’s part. He keeps getting better and better. Really excited to see what he does next.

Dean Bradshaw’s Senior Citizen Athletes Are Young At Heart

Dean Bradshaw - Photography Dean Bradshaw - Photography Dean Bradshaw - Photography Dean Bradshaw - Photography

Dean Bradshaw is an advertising photographer based in LA who’s created an entertaining series of portraits of senior citizen athletes. Their characters are hilariously over the top, though his attention to detail keeps them from being tacky. The colours are vibrant and youthful, and photos crisp to match the playfulness of the subjects. It’s obvious that the project was fun to put together.

Bradshaw says of his work:

“I’m drawn to storytelling, character and well-crafted, stylized imagery.

 

I’m attracted to the ‘why’ of things, the essential ingredients that comprise a story, a brand or a character – those elements below the surface which define the exterior. I enjoy immersing viewers in imagery that takes them into a world outside the ordinary. I’m fascinated by narrative, but find inspiration in the real world where things can be equally, if not more, peculiar. More than anything, I enjoy ideas – but realize that they are nothing without equal part execution.”

The images knock the severity out of sport imagery. The idea of an athlete is often limited to someone in peak physical condition, and necessarily younger. Though lifting a massive dumbbell may not be an activity recommended to the average senior citizen, sports are not exclusive to young people. Bradshaw’s series helps to broaden our perceptions of an older generation.

Alexia Mosby Maps Out The Thoughts Of An Anxious Mind In Masking Tape

anxiety-2 anxiety-5 anxiety-4 anxiety-1

In the site-specific installation Anxiety Map, designer Alexia Mosby documents an overactive mind’s anxious thoughts. It’s a personal map, and one that boldly displays the many things that run through your head as you’re leaving your home. Over the course of two flights of stairs, you’re doubting that the stove was turned off or the door was locked. After making your way to the bottom of the steps, you come to the conclusion that you have to go back and check.

Anxiety Map uses stairs, walls, and even railings to transmit her text in black masking tape. At certain angles letters look distorted, and it’s only when you approach them from very specific ways that they appear correct. Otherwise, they are stretched, shortened, and sometimes incomprehensible – not dissimilar to the thoughts in our head.

Sean Norvet Binges The Imagination With Humorously Gross Mash-Ups Of Food And Flesh

Sean Norvet - Painting Sean Norvet - Painting Sean Norvet - Painting Sean Norvet - Painting

Sean Norvet is an LA-based artist who paints grotesquely amusing mash-ups that represent the mania and excess of contemporary culture. Food and flesh are his two main ingredients; shattered jawbones, melting eyes, raw meat, and fast food collide in unholy, humanoid altars. Norvet punctuates his pieces with eroticized body parts, mixing desire and beauty ideals with mass consumption. Despite the gruesome subject matter, his work is surprisingly humorous—and there’s a lot to digest.

In an Artist Perspective video with the Stay Gallery, Norvet describes today’s technology-saturated world as an all-you-can eat buffet. From dawn until dusk, we are inundated with arbitrary connections and information—whether we consent to them or not. With intense talent and keen social observations, his paintings reveal this cultural chaos in shameless and visceral ways, provoking self-reflection through imagery that is fun, insightful, and revolting.
