This interesting blend of paint and typography by Warsaw-based designer Pawel Nolbert was created by photographing actual paint splatters and merging them with digital illustration techniques. Titled Atypical, he describes the series of posters as an exploration of the form and rhythm of letterforms “presented as half-realistic, half-illustrative figurative sculptures.” You can see more on his website, and prints are available on Society6.

In his largest artwork to date, Chinese artist Yang Yongliang (previously here and here) just unveiled From the New World, a sprawling digital collage depicting an overpopulated, futuristic landscape completely overrun with construction, debris, and high-rise skyscrapers. The new artwork is a continuation of Yongliang’s ongoing commentary about the devastating effects of unchecked development and industrialization through the use of dense, photography-based collage. From the New World measures almost 26 feet wide (800cm) by 13 feet tall, and while it’s impossible to truly appreciate it online, you can see many more detail shots over on his website.

Early last year motion graphics artist and Alexandra Khitrova decided to utilize some of the digital tools she had acquired in her profession to explore concept illustration. While she did study art in school, this was an entirely new creative realm, a pet project to explore realms of science fiction and fantasy where flying dragons mingled with terrifying storms and otherworldly beings were brought to life on the screen.

The reaction online and off was swift, and Khitrova soon found herself working on increasingly complex drawings as she suddenly began to get commissions. Now, only a year later, she is already working with a team of writers and artists on a feature film. You can see more of her work over on DeviantArt.

Digital painter and concept artist Piotr Jabłoński creates brutally detailed paintings for videogames and comic books which often veer into the realm of horror, but in his spare time dabbles in somewhat tamer sketches and other random ideas that he shares with fans on Facebook. A few months ago he stumbled onto the idea of two small brothers in futuristic space helmets who explore the world with a feline pal, a giant cat mural that follows them everywhere, provided there’s a wall. The response online has been incredible, with fans demanding an art book or even an entire comic book series. While nothing is concrete yet you can see more on Behance, and a few of the panels are available now as prints.

Belgium-based artist Catherine Nelson (previously) just unveiled a new series of works titled Expedition. The digitally “painted” collages are made from hundreds upon hundreds of photographs that Nelson meticulously assembles into sprawling worlds that straddle the line between real and imagined. The five pieces you see here were nearly 10 months in the making.

Unlike her previous collages that resemble tiny planets, the pieces from Expedition subvert traditional landscapes with a horizon and single vanishing point and instead seem to sprawl in every direction, as if being viewed from multiple vantage points at once. Each landscape is quite large, measuring 60″ tall by up to 115″ wide and is rich with details like hidden snakes, bats and lizards, all elements influenced by Nelson’s memories of her natural surroundings growing up along the east coast of Australia.

Nelson will soon have work at the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney this May with Michael Reid Gallery and a solo show in August at Gallerysmith in Melbourne.

Take a Psychedelic Trip through a World of Morphing Fractals by Alexandre Lehmann

No, you’re not on drugs, or maybe you are, in which case you might want to wait a while before watching this. Overstepping Artifacts is the latest fractalized music video from French animator and musician Alexandre Lehmann (aka Ricardo Montalban or Zzzzra) as part of his ongoing Musicians with Guns series. The clip is the definition of ‘otherworldly,’ and was created using special fractal software that results in morphing forms that seem part organic and part architectural. Overstepping Artifacts is a follow-up to his 2011 video Astroblast which is similar in tone but visuall quite different and also worth a watch. Lehmann talks a bit about his process in a 2012 interview over on Empty Kingdom. Best viewed HD, full-screen, headphones, etc.
