Janne Parviainen Light Painting 1

It’s pretty fantastic that in a world filled with digital editing Janne Parviainen is creating these light paintings with absolutely no post-production. That’s right – whatever his camera’s long exposure captures is what you see here. Obviously a huge amount of skill goes into each of these images, which the Finnish artist “paints” using differently colored strobe lights, flash lights, toys that light up and even his own specially engineered lighting system. Many of the images take hours to complete, and leave little or no evidence of their creator. [Read more...]

The images are almost unnerving in their quiet stillness, leaving the viewer to wonder if the works protagonist is dead, sleeping or stylistically frozen… only the story of Ophelia gives us the answer for one of these works… [Read more...]

I really can’t pull my eyes away from these snappy illustrations by Santtu Mustonen. His highly unique style has a three dimensional, painterly look that is unlike anything I’ve seen. The renderings are as crisp as they are bright, many looking like extruded swirls of multi-colored wet paint. Only adding to the grip this work has on my attention, Santtu has animated a number of his illustrations in GIF form, giving them some of the smoothest and perfectly rendered motion I’ve seen from this sort of thing.
