Dima Rebus

The illustrations of young Russian artist Dima Rebus may not be in-your-face flashy or neon bright, but they are bright in a different way. Less is more in these cases, as he inserts subtle humor into just about every piece he makes. He imagines a world in which handcuffed delinquents enjoy a spot of tea before their booking and where the riot police cavort with rioters in the streets - and any art that lets me use words like ‘cavort’ when talking about it, well, it’s alright by me.

Video and sound artist Maxim Zhestkov presents his latest short film titled Recursion, reminiscent of 1960′s sci-fi both in content and in style – I’m diggin’ it!

Francisco Infante-Arana & Nonna Gorunova

Francisco Infante-Arana & Nonna Gorunova

Gorgeous sculptures that uses mirrors to force nature into interrupting itself. I see tons of art on Flickr sites that do the same thing but with Photoshop and Googled nature images, (don’t get me wrong, I like those too) but this the real thing! I can’t find very much information on the artist duo- I’m assuming they were husband and wife or something… Wiki search rewarded me this: Francisco Infante-Arana formed an artists’ collective known as the Movement Group & continues to be one of the premier Russian avant-garde artists. “Nonna Gorunova” yielded me results only in the context of Francisco. It would be great if any of you readers can shed more light on them! You can find more of their work on this LiveJournal photo community.
