3D artist Chris LaBrooy takes the form of classic pickup trucks and bends them to his will in his incredibly surreal images. Truck beds stretch into long curving loops, interlocking with other pickups in impossible looking assemblages. As much as these appear to be sculptures (…how amazing would they be?!), they are actually hyper-realistic digital renderings from his series Tales of Auto Elasticity. [Read more…]
What if walls had leaves and trees had windows? These are the kind of questions that artist Carolyn Lefley explores in her recent photo series Realm. Using Photoshop, she layers images of natural settings over humble interiors, creating beautiful and impossible images in which architecture and landscape become one. [Read more…]
As a tribute to their keyboardist Rick Wright, who lost his battle with cancer in 2008, Pink Floyd is releasing a new album called “The Endless River.” Before his death, Wright was working on a solo album, which he was never able to finish. On the new album, which will be released November 10th, 2014, David Gilmour and Nick Mason include unreleased recordings from 20 years ago. The album cover design was created by Egyptian teen Ahmed Emad Eldin, who was discovered through Behance by the band’s creative agency. The cover features a man standing alone in a small boat, rowing through the clouds. Eldin says he was “thinking about life and nature” when he created the image. The last time Pink Floyd released an album was “The Division Bell” 2 decades ago in 1994, which is before Eldin was even born. [Read more…]
So there’s a monster in the closet? Under the bed? No big deal… at least for the kids in French photographer/digital retoucher Laure Fauvel’s series ‘Terreurs.’ The children in her images are fighting back, and they’re armed. [Read more…]
Shaun Kardinal has been creating digital collages using found images from friends’ Facebook and Instagram feeds… specifically nabbing the birds that frequent their skies. His series Flying Formation is a collection of improbable (or impossible?) formations of birds in curving spirals, perfectly straight lines and sky filling flocks. His unconventional exhibition took the form of posting the images on Instagram over the course of two hours during Seattle’s First Thursday Art Walk. [Read more…]
Uniqlo, has big news in NYC. To get ready for the opening of their #SPRZNY store on March 28th, they’re asking you to wait in line… but don’t worry, you don’t have to do it yourself. The Lucky Uniqlo Line is a virtual line where you pick a wardrobe for an avatar and put them in your place in line to win a load of prizes, and join in celebrating the store opening. Now why can’t waiting in line for real be that good? [Read more…]
If you were a gamer in the early ‘90s, you probably remember raving about the awesome graphics. It seemed like the future was right around the corner, about to pop into full color photo realism… I mean, just look at Jean-Luc Picard’s head!
To see how ‘real’ each of those games really was, Brother Brain (aka NYC artist John McGregor) has done movie/game mashups, showing us an animated look at how the old games measured up to reality… or at least a promotional picture. [Read more…]
Nick Pedersen has a vision of the future, and he’s revealing it to us through vast landscapes of a world after the “peak” of human civilization. His stunningly detailed works see humans in a not so distant time, surrounded by the ruins of society as we know it.
Here is a world filled with nuclear power plants long dormant; the rusting hulks of cruise ships that no longer sail; and even the remnant scribbles of street art no longer speaking. It’s not all bleak however – because despite the cold, nature has come back with abundance. [Read more…]
Get ready to be hypnotized. This new animation from Universal Everything sees a stocky white figure loping before a white background… don’t let the stark beginning fool you though – your eyes will soon be glued to the slow-motion action that unfolds on the screen. [Read more…]
Matt W. Moore is drawing outside the box, challenging our definition of art with his Numerically Controlled Series of “drawings.” Here he collaborates with engineer Aaron Panone to harness the power of a 3-axis CNC machine to draw his geometrically stunning works. The machine, retrofitted with a special fixture, holds a Sharpie permanent marker and mimics the pressure of a hand while drawing. Is it art? Is it design? While the definition of this work is unclear, the result is beautiful precision. [Read more…]
