I love the work of Laura Splan. She uses a combined knowledge of biological sciences and fine art to re-invent patterns and forms created by the human body. Because her work is closely linked to the biology of the human condition, it evokes an inherent discomfort. For me, this is most prevalent in “Purse #1″, a delicate evening bag constructed with remnant facial peels from her breast.
Paul Graves’ work is lewd and provocative, but is really clean and “editorial” at the same time. When browsing his portfolio you’ll notice the often usage of a couple things: balloons, nudity as a costume, and mannequins. It seems he likes exploring human vice, which always makes for a good concept…and zentai (Youtube is currently down, but the video should be good so check back later to see it, haha)!
David Mascha, an artist based in Vienna, Austria, has been working with different design studios since 2005. He has also done work for international clients, print magazines, fashion and design labels, and books. David has also had work displayed in exhibitions in Asia and Europe. I really like his diverse but defined style. Every piece he does is bold in its own way.
Some really cool work from Shane Sakkeus. I especially like how he exhibits his work online, check out his website!
