Moscow-based graffiti artist Aske created this colorfully striking series of plywood artworks for the Faces & Laces Street Culture Show earlier this month. See much more via his site and learn more about the process over at Creative Review.
CNJPUS TEXT is the latest work from Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu. The text is formed by using strokes borrowed from Chinese characters and then restructuring them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Via artist a day:
Shimizu is influenced by Japanese traditions and practices–the relationship between history and modern society and between the self and other people. His work ranges from photography to three-dimensional objects and installations.
Yeah, so file this under things I’ll never have the patience to do. Details are scarce, but Flickr user EyalR folds some incredible things with a single sheet of paper. Most of the designs are by other artists, such as Nguyen Hung Cuong and Hojyo Takashi, but his skill is palpable in each delicate piece. This lizard almost looks like real thing.
At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second.
