Slowly Rising: A Mesmerizing New Music Video by Hideki Inaba

Christopher Jobson

Directed and animated by Hideki Inaba, this dense and intensely beautiful music video was created for the track Slowly Rising, off the album Full Circle by BEATSOFREEN. The 3-minute animation features an unceasing barrage of seemingly infinite creatures, hybrids of flora and fauna, that swarm and multiply in space like schools of fish or flowers in a field.

Working from his studio in Alpine, Texas, artist Mark Lovejoy creates richly textured images of mixed paint, but although he’s somewhat secretive about his process, one thing is clear: they aren’t just photographs of mixed paint. The act of creating the color formations alone sounds more like an act of chemistry than art as he mixes resins, oils, diluents, waxes, and drying agents to create the gloppy textures you see here. Portions are then photographed, reworked, and reshot. More

Chicago-based artist Bruce Riley fills canvases with abstract organic forms made from layer after layer of dripped paint and poured resin. While looking at images of his work online, it’s difficult to grasp the depth and scale of each piece which can be penetrated by light from multiple angles, casting shadows deep into the artwork. Riley works using a number of experimental techniques, frequently incorporating mistakes and unexpected occurrences into the thick paintings that appear almost sculptural in nature. More

The artist Kat O’ Sullivan has been creating upcycled sweaters and clothing for over 20 years. “It seems like anything within my grasp ends up painted a million colors,” she says. And this statement certainly held true when the artist decided to purchase a home in upstate New York that had been built in 1840. “I just thought it was cute,” explains Sullivan, but “it was the kind of house you would drive by and never notice.”
But once in the hands of the artist and her “creative mayhem” the home quickly began to change. More

Animator Ben Ridgway creates abstract animations that explore organic and metaphysical imagery, relating to aspects of life and interconnectedness. His latest film, Cosmic Flower Unfolding, recently won several awards and has been touring film festivals around the world since late last year. He shares about his work via his website:

My abstract animations investigate the metaphysical features of reality. They are designed to stimulate archetypal associations and invite the viewer to make personal connections to the visual and auditory experience without any reliance on narrative or spoken language.

The Deep End: A Jaw-Dropping Animation Drawn by Hand with Ink, White-out, and Coffee by Jake Fried

Boston-based animator Jake Fried just released his latest psychedelic animation, The Deep End, which was drawn entirely with ink, coffee, and white-out. The animation is continually layered on top of itself as forms morph, bend and transform across the screen. I can’t help but wonder how thick the final canvas is with so many layers of illustration. If you were as blown away by this as I was, you’re in luck: see some of his earlier animations such as Sick Leave and Waiting Room. More

Leif Podhajsky is an artist and creative director who makes astounding album covers for numerous labels including Warp Records, Sub Pop, Sony, Warner, Atlantic and others. An artist statement via his website says “His work explores themes of connectedness, the relevance of nature and the psychedelic or altered experience. By utilizing these subjects he attempts to coerce the viewer into a realignment with themselves and their surroundings.” These are some of my favorites of his work, both new and old, and here’s a great interview with Leif on Beautiful Decay from last year.

London-based artist and animator Nicos Livesey creates these mind-exploding animations using intricately built loafs of plasticine. The colorful clay is formed into morphing and shifting geometric patterns that are revealed as he slices and photographs the cross-sections at painstaking 2mm intervals. (via fastco) More
