Andrew McAttee’s Paintings Will Blow Your Mind With Atomic Explosions Of Color

Andrew McAttee - Mixed Media


The artwork of Andrew McAttee erupts from the canvas in an atomic explosion of vivid colors and bold lines. His compositions suck you in like a vortex of cosmic proportion. Like an explosion of atoms, asteroids, fire bolts, and lightning, McAttee’s dynamic, large-scale paintings catch your eye and demand your attention. Each painting is layered in acrylic paint and spray paint in incredible, bright colors. The artist mixes flat lines and shapes like that in a comic book, with a variety of more dimensional elements.

This repetitious explosion present in McAttee’s work hints at themes of cause and effect. Both beauty and destruction can be seen in the breathtaking palettes and the collisions of the color combinations. It is almost as if his painting are molecules ready to erupt. The artist’s comic-pop style combines the occasional action word such as “Smash!” straight across his compositions. He is very apparently influenced by comic books and graphic novels, and also pulls inspiration from pop art and abstract expressionism. Street art and graffiti also has a hand at play in his multifaceted paintings, as he is known as a street artist as “STET”. Andrew McAttee is represented by Stolen Space Gallery in London and works and lives in the UK.

”My aim is to provide the viewer with a colourful riot of gravity-less forms set in highly layered, seemingly endless space with a sense of ambiguity, humour and celebration”
– Andrew McAttee

B/D Best of 2010 – Green Art: 10 Artists Working with Recycled Materials

David Edgar, "Green Fiesta Jellyfish Lamp"

The people of the United States alone toss out millions of plastic bottles every hour, and in a year, enough plastic film to shrink wrap Texas (which would be both a hilarious and horrifying feat.) Everyone knows it’s important to recycle, but it’s often hard to realize the consequences of forgetting about one little bottle; maybe we should consider not buying this stuff in the first place. (I drink out of the tap all the time, heck, I’d drink out of the hose.) Without getting on a soapbox, the following artists have made powerful statements about the ways in which we waste…. by re-using materials that would otherwise be thrown away, and removing paper and plastics completely from the recycling loop…. as even the act of recycling uses massive amounts of energy.

A Magical 3D Laser That Projects Images And Text Into Thin Air

Akira Asano - Misc

Akira Asano - Misc

The technological wizards at Burton Inc. have developed a 3D laser display that can project images onto thin air. By focusing laser beams onto a single spot and firing the lasers in bursts of 100 times per second, images appear out of nowhere like 21st century pointillist magic. So far, the images are rudimentary, looking for the most part like simple sketches in .GIF form. But it’s still a fantastic advancement of the technology.

“This is the only device that can show text and pictures in mid-air, without using a screen,” says Akira Asano, Burton Inc.’s director and head researcher. The first and foremost application of the technology has been for emergency warnings — such as in a tsunami scenario — or as signals in pedestrian-heavy areas, such as at a crosswalk.

Not only does Burton Inc. hope to see this technology implemented in public spaces but also in people’s personal cars, thereby transforming even civilian vehicles into portable 3D displays. (via This Is Colossal)

The Ghostly Landscapes Of Photographer Martin Vlach Evoke Mystery And Emotion

Martin Vlach - Photography Martin Vlach - Photography Martin Vlach - Photography Martin Vlach - Photography
The landscapes of photographer Martin Vlach emanate a mysterious and melancholic energy. Characterized by ghostly human figures silhouetted against an impenetrable mist, it is like witnessing somebody’s passage into the afterlife; with their backs turned and postures calm, the stoic, nameless people seem to be on the edge of something, hesitating between worlds, gazing into that all-engulfing void beyond which we — the dreaming bystanders — are not permitted to see. As you will notice, Vlach has seamlessly blended surrealist imagery into his photography: whales emerge from the fog, and bodies plummet from the clouds. These surprising elements enhance the series’ theme of liminality and otherworldliness, merging reality with an intangible, heart-wrenching dream.

What makes Vlach’s work so consistently engrossing is the atmosphere. His images are landscapes of emotion and sensorial experience; by empathizing with the distant figures, you can taste the chilled mist in your lungs, smell the rain-wet earth and sea, feel the grass and sand shift beneath you as you traverse the lonely terrain. There is a sense of movement and stillness, solitude and comfort. With the contours of the “real” world obscured in the fog, Vlach creates immersive landscapes that foster our own deeply personal interpretations and emotional engagements.

More of Vlach’s astonishing work can be found on his Tumblr, Instagram, and Flickr. (Via Colossal)

Photography by artist Antony Crossfield. I love his manipulation of the form of the body, as well as the feeling that each image is a still from a larger narrative.
